Telonius "Hit Me"
Gomma co-owner Telonius might be more well-known for crafting electo-infused post-disco gems, but the original of "Hit Me" is more likely to find acclaim among slow-motion disco fiends who are waiting for the next Lindstrøm track to drop. With its brash bassline, bright synth harmonies, and wet percussion, the track sounds like a lost gem from those heady days of the '80s, when electro and house were taking over from disco but techno hadn't invaded the electronic landscape yet. The fun, somewhat absurd Italo-style vocals and hypnotic synth flourishes seal the deal: "Hit Me" is a throwback piece in the best sense of the term, and is just perfect enough to be placed next to Freeez or Baldelli's latest cosmic offering.
