Rather surprising there aren't more reviews of this Mark Bell produced gem, nor is it exchanging for more because Valentino and Storm are both efficiently minded by the book and deadly weapons for extending two completely different moods.
Valentino just floats effortlessly along for however long you need it to work for. Wears its love for Detroit all over the drum programming. Very sleek. By the numbers. Easy to mix with limited means. Ecstatic. Tripping. Ethereal. Yet funky with one break at about four minutes, and a second pass into an endlessly building and enveloping key loop.
Storm is but a few sounds locked in a groove best heard at full volume in a very dark room on either a quad system or a wall of sound that is at least twelve feet tall, and about twenty eight feet wide. It's a cut for the body. Turn all of the lights off, except for one or two strobes on very low. Add a few lasers on a lazy meandering path, and let the music speak. Deadly. Dark. Efficient dj friendly with tightly funky percussion and a lot of cymbals and their effect driven interplay with the bass line with its helium metallic effects, and the ping pong ripping through it all. At eight minutes, and with what programming happened. It does overstay its welcome a bit. But, taken apart and used with purpose. Proper mind laboratory music.
