Los Massieras "Rumores"
As the second release for both Berlin's Los Massieras and the Bananamania imprint, the recently released Better Than Italians EP—an obvious reference to Mike Simonetti's Italians Do it Better label—might wear quite a boastful title, not to mention an amusing Neu!-inspired record sleeve, but it seems the disc has the tunes to carry such a claim. On "Rumores," the DJ/production duo runs with its idea of revamping Italian pop music circa 1970, crafting an exuberant, disco-referencing dance tune full of funky guitar licks, pulsing bass lines, and dusty samples of horn sections and choral vocals. Los Massieras' track rides a fine line between being an edit, a remix, and an original, but will undoubtedly render such labels inconsequential when dropped in the middle of your next vintage disco DJ set.
