Erotic Italia: The Insatiable Sounds of '70s Italian Cinema

Another mix I put together of stuff I've been into the last few weeks, this one heavy on Piero Umiliani who I'm currently digging. This collection just in time for winter's arrival. Find a warm spot, red wine or drink of choice, a hot babe and dig these chilled grooves.

First a sip..

Franco Micalizzi - Istantanea di una Rapina (Hold-Up) (1974)

Again, never seen this one. But any film that gets a 4.7 on imdb gets my respect. What I know for certain is that this is Italian Poliziotteschi at its best. Gorgeous soundtrack by Micalizzi. Lots of strings on this one, and a main theme that's reworked in a lot of interesting ways. Some raw guitar and breakbeat sections not unlike a lot of what we hear in Morricone's polizio work.

This particular song includes the flute and trumpet to give a particularly American Blaxploitation film feel. Check how the bongos/djembes are brought forward at about the one minute mark
