Normally associated with Italo disco's loveable schmalz, in "Superstar" De Luca's net of influence is cast back further still to the big-haired theatrics of '70s bands like ELO and T-Rex. There's some nice vocoder squelch and ivory tinkling in this camp knees-up, but the one-man-band lacks lapels outrageous enough to hit the stadium epics of his go-to men. At a curt three minutes, its bridges and refrains are also rather hurriedly worked through.
Chromeo go cameo with a guest vocal/synth appearance over largely the same accompaniment. They're charming in their bubblegum ways, the Canadians, and the inclusion of masturbatory guitar solos near the end draws a wry smile, but if you go for one, make it The Krays remix for the simple reason that it sounds just like the Aeroplane of fonder memories.
