It’s been so long since Italy was the major exporter of spacey disco jams that the term “Italo” might seem like an odd misnomer (especially for those of us closer in age to Italian schizo-electro groups Crookers and Bloody Beetroots than pioneers like Giorgio Moroder). But with two new releases at the end of 2011, burgeoning imprint Danny Was a Drag King—originally a disco offshoot of Hell Yeah Records—seems to be re-staking the nation’s claim to sexy synth licks and drum-machine-powered four-on-the-floor. Later this month, DWDK will release Puralana by Rome-based producer Luminodisco, which features this deep, DFA-esque tune, hot on the heels of the recently released Smells Like Too Cheesy by fellow Italians Ajello.
