The first release for Public Possession in 2018 is startling – it comes from Wolfram, making a neat segue away from DFA to turn out some unapologetic, anthemic Italo, which particularly remembers ‘Take a Chance’, or perhaps Laser’s ‘Laser’. With label founders Marvin and Valentino no strangers to exhilarating Italo and hi-NRG excursions, it follows in the footsteps of edits from the likes of Bell Towers and Samo DJ, which takes us full circle to the track on display right here.
Best known for outings on L.I.E.S., The Trilogy Tapes and his own Born Free Records, Samo takes control of the first of two remixes found on the flip. The titular ‘Automatic Dub’ has been turned over to the Swedish whizkid, who wrestles it into an aloof, dubbed-out, 303-roller, stripping back all of the earnest urgency to reveal a nonchalant acid-lounge core.
Automatic Dub is out March 16th on Public Possession – pre-order the vinyl here.
