Not content with running three of the best electronic labels going (Pigna, Nature, and Final Frontier), veteran Italian producer Marco Passarani signals his arrival on Peacefrog with one of the year‘s first great albums. Sullen Look sees the Rome resident merge the Detroit influences that informed his initial productions almost a decade ago with the currently hotter-than-horseradish electro sounds emerging from Dutch strongholds such as the Clone and Den Haag camps; there‘s even a track dedicated to I-F‘s irrepressible Internet radio station (“C-B-S Master Theme”). Two brilliant cover versions-of Alexander O‘Neal‘s ‘Criticize‘ (with Erlend Øye on vocals) and Jungle Brothers‘ “I‘ll House You”-will have your jaw on the floor.
