In "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 typical Italo-disco riff is introduced into a virtually deep-house context.
It's never easy to stick music genre labels to Robotnick's tracks. Robotnick's entire production of these last years takes up a real challenge: competing with "all digital" contemporary music production using the warm sounds of his vintage synths, processing them with modern digital technologies but never leveling them off into the unreality of digital sound.
"Let The Rhythm Play On" (126 bpm) closes Chapter n. 9 with an ironic pot-pourri of many different musical styles, ranging from funky to ambient-house and techno.
