During the past two or three years, Magic Touch (a.k.a. Damon Palermo), has often been viewed through the lens of his previous projects, especially his work with skronky outfit Mi Ami. However, with his debut full-length, Palermo House Gang, ready to drop next week via the 100% Silk label, it seems like the time has truly arrived to evaluate the LA-based producer solely on the basis of his output as a solo artist. Listening to the selections, it quickly becomes clear that Palermo's preference for decidedly funky dancefloor sounds is very much intact here, though it bears mentioning that this tendency is more tied to a general vibe than any sort of strict genre regimen. There are are disco edits, swinging garage cuts, soulful house tracks, and even some choice moments where the proceedings get a bit deep and dubby.
