Want to know a primary source for the Italians Do It Better crew's glitter disco? Jump online and dial up Alexander Robotnick's "Problèmes d'amour." It's a tad sunnier than Chromatics, but the template of analog synths and crisp dance beats are present and accounted for. After that track's release in 1983, the Italian electro master (real name: Maurizio Dami) abandoned his signature sound for a stretch, choosing to explore African and Indian music. Over the past decade, though, Robotnick has returned to his roots, producing new collections and 12-inch singles of vintage-sounding Italo disco. He makes a rare visit to Portland this week, and will perform live as well as offering up a pumping house/electro DJ set. ROBERT HAM
