Spaziotempo, the latest release out on Milan-based Alzaya, is a dreamy six-tracker by the two co-pilots behind the imprint, Volantis & Nicodemo. Having previously put Alzaya on the map via solo outings on the label, their joint effort pays tribute to 80s synth stompers and 90s Italo house. The pair have also enlisted Australian movers and shakers Bell Towers and Andras for two remixes, with our premiere coming courtesy of the latter.
The B3 closer to the record – Andras’s remix of the Balearic-inflected “Fuori Orbita” strips down the track’s brighter elements in favour of foregrounding the catchy bassline. The hazy pads have carried over into to the remix, but duck down when the bass comes galloping in, allowing for sparser moments that will surely resonate on the dance floor. A great lesson of how less is more, Andras’ remix does great damage with fewer words, leading to a remix that will without a doubt move many bodies on any dance floor.
Full of the much needed positivity we’ve all been needing, Spaziotempo is a welcome dose of bouncy and buoyant dance music, arriving just right in time for warmer weather and happier days.
