Milan based Heels Of Love is made up of Luca Saponaro (from Krautrock-Disco hybrids The Love Supreme) and Michele Tessadri (AKA Fratelli Riviera). The pair of them create incredible 80's-tinged, earthy, synthesized music with healthy dose of real instruments. After some nifty releases on Mad On The Moon and Under The Shade labels we are pleased to welcome them to the Nang family. With an LP poised to drop later in the year, the welcome first dose is the train "Chain Gang".
The track features the dulcet (and ever growing in confidence) vocals of Tokyo based Max Essa. The original is a pacey combination of Max's Devo'esque song, driving drums and the wide-as analog bass synth from the Italian duo. Are We Men? We certainly are.
On the remix tip first up is UK based duo Foto (Kevin Swain and Enzo "Plastic Fantastic" Amico). Their mix adds in some of Enzos Italian flair with a spooky pad and housepiano combo from Kevin.
Next up is a real treat from Irish new comer Laser Tom. Proof, as if it were needed, that this chap is on the producer fast track. Its an amazing re-work of the track, new tempo, lashes of new bass and guitar and a whole heap of extra neat production touches that make this mix special. He even gets all "George-Benson" on us in the outro.
For those who like things less vocal we include an array of instrumentals and dubs. The Heels Of Love album drops later in the year.
