Synopsis

Album Description
After the debut album Subterranean Modern vol. 1, released in 1999, Stefano Ghittoni and Cesare Malfatti aka The Dining Rooms keep capturing attention with this album of remixes and outtakes. The outtakes will be opening and closing the album with, first, 'Lenny-The Stereo Hip', which represents the beginning of the collaboration with the Belgian refugee Vincent Dalschaert, and 'Ida', an old dark jazz production found in the archive of the CHE studios. The remixes will show what's happening in the Italian underground, with the participation of Soulstance, Bedroom Rockers, Bruno Bolla & Roger Tegner, Omino Stanco with Agatha Crew (Andrea Lai and Riccardo Petitti), Max & Fab, Lagash & Spiral Man.

"I picked this one up for about a third the price from Europe. This is a 10 cut remix project by Cesare Malfatti/Stefano Ghittoni, AKA The Dining Rooms. They are based on the Idizioni-Ishtar label and this is a release that was around the time of Numero Deux, and features remixed cuts from that album and Subterranean Modern. It's a solid cd - but it is very raw! The sound, the guitars - you can tell they were experimenting with different sounds and old-school almost 50's like guitar fades. Some of the cuts were a little on the dance side, a few on the chill-side and they weren't shy on the effects and clips. The most interesting cuts to me was first, the remake of "Mr. Dupont". The one on Numero Deux is admittedly a little boring to me after the first two minutes - but this one sort of loops and has a real "spy" theme to it with the dialogue in the background. "Maria" is another decent track - you feel like you're in a little bar somewhere underground.So if you're looking for something more polished and modern like the sound in their new one "Tre", you'll be GRAVELY disappointed. Yet if you're in tune with their roots and like the whole sort of spy-themed 60's soundtrack, you may enjoy this. But is it worth the rather high price here? That's debatable since I know what it is. Then again, I would've probably gotten it anyway since I'm a big time Dining Rooms fan and was curious about this sound."
