After the excellent reception afforded to Connectors comes Connectors 2.

And what a magnificent animal it would be if it were an animal but it’s not.

It’s a collection of previously unreleased library/soundtrack music from some of the greatest modern Italian composers including the legendary Ennio Morricone compiled by the ever adventurous Barry 7.

Barry 7 - whose new album with Add N to X ‘Loud Like Nature’ is also out this sSeptember - is renowned for his unique DJ sets (that feature everything from Paul McCartney to Funky Country), his wild synthesiser tones and his impeccable dress sense.

Barry has as always gone to great lenghths to unearth the most unusual, experimental but nevertheless musical treasures and nowhere is this more evident than on Connectors 2. All but one of these tracks have been licensed from the highly collectable Cam label and none have been commercially avaible before now. Known in Italy as one of the great soundtrack and jazz labels, much of the music here doubled both as library and film soundtrack music in the 1960’s and 70’s.

Piccioni’s fusion of Basic Channel techno minimalism with Hanged Man style‘super slick chase scene funk’ replete with impossible time changes and spot on brass playing is only one of the many highlights.

Fried psychedelic funk, maverick electronic freakouts, lush orchestral workouts, heavenly voices and of course those twangy guitars that Morricone is famous for.

There’s even some Glenn Milleresque space jazz that wouldn’t be out of place in the famous Star Wars bar scene courtesy of the incredible Giampiero Boneschi.

None of this material has been licensed before and to say it is rare is an understatement.

The sound is very different from its predecessor most of which emanated from France. There is it is said nothing to compete with the ‘Italian Style’ and after listening to this compilation you might be inclined to agree.
