Bottin - Horror Disco Sampler

Bottin, AKA William Bottin makes music only an Italian can make... probably. Take a youth spent against a background of old Italian Giallo soundtracks, some John Carpenter film music, add in late 70’s Italo disco influences, add a touch of free, some easy west-coast vibe and a smattering of kitsch. That just about half describes Bottin.

Here at the Bearfunk cave we are thriller-ed to be putting out a tasty four track taster EP from the upcoming album (and concept!) that is "Horror Disco".

As a taster for the main event we open things up with "Disco For The Devil". If Vincent Price & Giorgio Moroder had made Italo then this may have been the result. Douglas Meakin (Legendary UK -> Italian émigré, session singer supreme and TV composer / vocalist) provides the perfectly sculptured vocal to hint at the carnage and blood to come.

Next up is Sciarando El Scuro, a unique blend of lazy disco and poliziesco, slasher b-movie soundtracks. Just in case you were wondering Sciarando El Scuro (pronounced "tscha-rando el scooroh") is Venetian dialect and means "throwing light into the darkness".

Side B opens up with an exclusive track, "Cosmic Pizza". This layers choppy guitars and meandering juno style synth-lines over a space-disco tarantella (the traditional Italian triplet-based rhythm, don’t you know). Schaffel-schmaffell…
