Vinyl LP pressing. Highly anticipated 2015 album from the legendary Italian cinematic funk combo Calibro 35, who were recently sampled by Dr. Dre on Compton. Recorded to tape on an 8-track tape recorder at the 'analog mecca' Toe Rag Studios in London, the worldwide famous studio where The White Stripes penned Elephant, S.P.A.C.E. is the fifth studio album by Calibro 35. Forget about the gripping noir atmospheres of their previous full lengths, with this album, the Milan combo escapes from planet earth and lands on their own satellite to write the perfect funk soundtrack of an imaginary sci-fi movie directed by Sergio Leone. They've thrown away the balaclavas and embraced a bunch of synthesizers in their new installment where Calibro 35 explores fresh new territories. From the storming imaginary main title notes of the title track ‘S.P.A.C.E.’ to the percussive effects and creepy organ of ‘Serenade For A Satellite’, with incursions into cosmic afrobeat (‘Ungwana Bay Launch Complex’), lunar funk (‘Bandits On Mars’) and trippy atmospheres (‘Something Happened on Planet Earth’), in S.P.A.C.E. Calibro 35 sound as cinematic and groovy as ever. Captured live and direct to tape with no overdubbing or editing facilities by Tommaso Colliva (Muse/Franz Ferdinand), the sound is tough, warm and super tight and confirms the unique musicianship of the band able in few years to gain followers worldwide.
