Chapter 9 of Alexander Robotnick’s ‘Music For An Imaginary Club’ consists of 3 disco-tech tracks.

On ‘Don't Look Back’ (105 bpm) Robotnick takes a typical Italo-Disco riff and blends it into a slow electro-funk rhythm where an obstinate TB303 pattern makes the skeleton of a body full of references to the tones of the 80s and yet the track has no classical Italo-disco sound.

The same concept applies to the second track, ‘Deep Italo’ (118 bpm). Here too a classic Italo riff is introduced into virtually a Deep House context. It's never easy to stick music genre labels on Robotnick's tracks. His entire production of recent years has taken up a real challenge: competing with "all digital" contemporary music production while using the warm sounds of his vintage synths, processing them with modern digital technologies but never levelling them off into the unreality of digital sound.

‘Let The Rhythm Play On’ (126 bpm) closes volume 9 with an ironic potpourri of many different musical styles, ranging from Funky to Ambient House and Techno.
