Gatto Fritto "Hex"
Coming somewhat out of leftfield is this fresh cut of deep, Italo-inspired disco from the UK's Gatto Fritto, an elusive artist crafting solid dance tracks on the fringes of obscurity. And yet somehow, the producer's forthcoming record is being championed by the likes of Tim Sweeney, Prins Thomas, and JD Twitch, including the epic "Hex" number. The lengthy jam brings to mind the kinds of tracks you'd catch blaring from Johnny Jewel's ghettoblaster in the middle of a late-night house party at first, but expands its psychedelic synthscapes and motorik beat work to better fit something Lindstrøm might throw on the hi-fi during a drug-addled séance. Look for more of these shapeshifting sounds when Gatto Fritto drops his self-titled debut LP on April 26.
