Serious Italo authenticity from Manchester, Starion (a man who seems to be wholly motivated by sci-fi and synths) lays down a blisteringly slick synthetic serenade in the form of “Hypnoto Roboto”. Reminiscent of the work of Riccardo Cioni but with added automaton frontage, it’s a fine flashback to the early 80s by way of contemporary production oomph. Remix-wise Kid Machine adds a dubbier, almost Chicken Lips style flex. Further on Starion gets his synth boogie on with “Mindbender” while “Moonbase Alpha” is another journey through time and space that touches on classic electro as well as Italo. Laced with heady melodies, you can almost smell the emotion.
