Dahlia (limited 12" 再プレス)
Cat: FMB 005. Rel: 21 Sep 21
Deep House
  1. Bicep & Hammer - "Dahlia" (7:55)
  2. Bicep - "Rays" (6:00)
  3. Bicep - "Seagulls" (5:43)
Review: Northern Irish duo Bicep has built their production career on blending, repackaging and reimagining classic house influences. It's little surprise, then, to find that this latest 12" does the same. Hammer collaboration "Dahlia" sets the tone, combining the bold pianos of vintage Italian house with the kind of dreamy pads and snappy drum machine rhythms that recall the Halcyon days of late '80s/early '80s Balearic house. There's more of a sweaty warehouse feel about "Rays" - all yelping female vocal cuts, booming garage bass and skipping beats - while "Seagulls" sits somewhere between the two tracks, offering both bottom-end bump and eyes-closed sweetness.

Think About Me
Think About Me (yellow vinyl 10")
Cat: IH 002. Rel: 19 Oct 21
  1. Think About Me (6:17)
  2. Paraiso Tan (5:31)
Review: Italo Hits makes no bones about its musical mission. Next up to do exactly that the label says on its tin is Hammer, a returning artist who has already this year served up his fine 'I Wanna Be Like You' EP. He is well known as a hit maker as well as being a partner and blogging friend of Bicep and doesn't disappoint here: 'Think About Me' is a nice late night and silky Italo grover with warm chord work and busy, chilly drums that lock you right in. On the flip of this tasty yellow 10" is 'Paraiso Tan' with its sunset vibe, balmy neon colours and retro-future Italo disco licks.

I Wanna Be Like You
I Wanna Be Like You (orange vinyl 12")
Cat: IH 001. Rel: 09 Apr 21
  1. I Wanna Be Like You (5:21)
  2. Wakeup Call (5:59)
Review: Italo Hits does exactly what it says on the tin. This latest missive from Hammer is a perfect soundtrack to your lockdown home workout. It brings to mind spandex, aerobics, headbands and sweat socks with its tooting arps and future-retro casino keys. Fully hi-NRG drums and big vocals all add to the drama as you race along at one hundred miles an hour. And that's just the a-side. On the flip, 'Wakeup Call' is a little more dark and edgy, with rugged riffs and slapping hits powering you through the cosmos. These are both certified anthems.

Strong Enough
Strong Enough (hand-stamped 12")
Cat: THH 002. Rel: 02 Dec 20
Deep House
  1. Strong Enough (7:14)
  2. Strong Enough (Mall Grab Escape From Goulburn Supermix) (7:21)
Review: Hammer is the partner and blogging friend of Bicep. He's been putting out big, festival pleasing tunes for a hot minute now and finally started his own label as a way to putting out, presumably, even more. This second issue is a big one. 'Store Enough; has funky guitar riffs, rugged synth loops and a drilling baseline all carrying an epic diva vocal. It's heart felt, high impact, but filled with soul. Backing up the epic original is a darker, more trance inducing, warehouse ready and banging Mall Grab Escape From Goulburn Supermix.

At Once EP
Cat: OMD 09. Rel: 01 Dec 16
  1. At Once (6:58)
  2. Stripes (7:00)
  3. Stripes (Special Disco version) (5:08)
  4. Stripes (Special Disco version)
Review: Stop: Hammer time! Optimo welcome a new person-of-mystery with two slippery club poppers that teeter between house, disco, funk and boogie. "At Once" struts with loose-strung bass, slinky beats and a possibly a vocal lament for days pre-social media (although we might be looking too deeply into that) "Stripes", meanwhile, goes back to the source: Arthur Russell's Felix guise with a slightly spiky, barbed twist on "Tiger Stripes". Needs more congas? Jump straight on the Special Disco Disco Remix.
