Vinyl of the Day - "In Flagranti w/ Natalie Smash: Ex Ex Ex"

12" Single of the Day (565gr vinyl)
In Flagranti feat. Natalie Smash: "Ex Ex Ex" (Codex) 2010

Description: In Flagranti return with more disco mayhem, spread over two twelves. "Ex Ex Ex" is superbly chunky, wonky disco-not-disco cut reminiscent of post-punk outfits like Pulsallama, and comes complete with a brilliantly oddball rap and warbling vocal by Natalie Smash. Side A features vocal, instrumental and acapella versions. Then it's on to the refixes: Riton takes a sidestep from his usual electro sound to drop something much funkier with a touch of synth squealing. Headman delivers another of his tougher acidic disco-not-disco offerings. DJ Wool jacks it in a funk electro style. Gomma's Golden Bug comes up with a hot and sampladelic b-boy disco-funk version. Hercules (as in 'And Love Affair') goes slo-mo in some retro cosmic house vibe. Which leaves Bottin to fly the flag for galloping Italo disco.
