The Gino Fontaine
Revnorev / Konkondo
The mysterious Gino Fontaine is unmasked - a nom de plume for non other than that Chicken Lipped, Emperor Machinist himself, Andy Meecham. Time and again the synth master has proved his mettle, and it's safe to say that he delivers another absolute killer here. In fact esteemed gentleman of dance music, Bill Brewster has already picked out lead cut "Revnorev" for his acclaimed "Late Night Tales - After Dark (Nightshift)" compilation. And quite right too, if you can find a better example of an anthemic light / dark chug-fest, we'd be happy to hear it! This exclusive 12" mix bounds out the speaker with scorching bass pulses and atmospherics, jet propelled by synthesized drums and the trademark Meecham synthwork. Soon enough ice cool Chic-esque guitar and YMO style top lines emerge to create an epic space-disco finale. On the flipside we're greeted with "Konodo" which starts life like a mysterious early 80s Cosmic holy grail (think Tangerine Dream or Richard Schneider Jr) with its gentle wave washes before gradually unfurling into an undulating bass driven chugger perfect for an ALFOS party. A stunning release then, limited and lovely as ever - don't sleep!
