Zesty house and disco from a staple of the American queer underground.
There's no one style or vibe to Temperado Tornado: you could easily be convinced it was made by four different producers, each with their own master drum programming. The title track is the most memorable, inspired by the jazz, swing and bossa nova of Poitier's anime soundtrack collection. Zesty horn riffs are looped over a chunky disco house beat loaded with shakers and cowbell. It's one of those tracks that would steal the spotlight in any mix.
The other tracks are subtler. "Lowside Heights" has a downcast chord progression and detached vocals from Poitier himself, while "Gasp + Grasp" is moody house with horns flown in from some dub record, replete with vintage '70s-style delay. "Phakie Phattie" takes the cake, with psychedelic panning and drums that seem to fold in on themselves.
