As the cover suggests it's heavily influenced by italian horror flicks (giallo's). It is an 80s synth driven record filled with haunting synthesizers, dramatic climaxes, claustrophobic touches and dark italo disco.
This could have been the latest hommage to a long gone musical and cinematographic era but luckily Hill manages to inject his own personal touch.
Prophecy of the Black Widow is a great record. One you definitely won't put into your Ipod when walking at night, alone, in an "apparently" quiet neighbourhood.
Phrophecy of The Black Widow has been released on Not Not Fun Records.

Two gems soon to be released on Disco Deviance.
My preference goes to the smooth You know how I feel but dub dynamite is a banger as well.

you can listen to the album here:
"Voltage Controlled Feelings" is the sonic testimony of more than two decades of serious electro, funk and boogie studies from Swedish synth commander Opolopo!
Blending epic Blade Runner soundscapes and Krautrock sequencer lines into cruising west coast beats and beyond, he proves that science fiction and funk are not only compatible, but have always belonged together. "Voltage Controlled Feelings" is a newly discovered planet orbiting a distant star, that also pays homage to the synthesizers, drum machines and the artists who influenced Opolopo's music. Echoes of Prince, Herbie Hancock, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Vangelis, Tangerine Dream and Isao Tomita can be heard throughout the album.
Fellow electronauts include L.A. vocalist Erik Rico, known for his work with Tupac Shakur and David LaChapelle, Farah from UK hit collective Incognito, Toronto-based jazz vocalist Sacha Williamson and Stockholm-based vocal talent Amalia Townsend.
Supported by respected funkateers such as Dam-Funk, King Britt, Simbad and Laurent Garnier, you best put on your finest space suit and dappest boogie shoes to catch the Opolopo starcruiser!

press text taken from Kinnego records:
Space Dimension Controller is the techno funk alias of 19-year-old Jack Hamill. Equally inspired by both the tape warped soundtrack to Garth Merenghi’s Darkplace and early Aphex Twin, Jack’s all-analogue production gives his tracks a timeless sound that’s a mile away from contemporary electro and house. The beats are low slung and funky, and the melodies are addictive and show a natural flair. On The Love Quadrant, a girl / boy vocal exchange sets the scene while the track builds momentum, before the whole thing spaces off on a sweet minimoog solo. On the flip, Electropod-250 Collision has a deep 808 pulse and flanged bass, topped off with Detroit-inspired melodies and blurred out reverbs.
Space Dimension Controller (Myspace).
Gatekeeper's Optimus Maximus EP has been released about a year ago but I only discovered it now.
A new EP (Giza) can be pre-ordered on Merok.
Anyway, great stuff!!!
Check it out!
