Umberto is the side project of Expo '70s bass/synth player, Matt Hill. It's a shlocky tribute to the tense scores of countless Italian horror films and cop movies from the likes of Fabio Frizzi and his Goblin ensemble, except maybe minus some of the proggier elements. This brings him up to date and in the next lane to the likes of Steve Moore's Zombi project, or like a lo-fi Gatekeeper, keeping the emphasis on slow and throbbing disco-horror basslines with arpeggiated synthlines to go-go.

Umberto - From The Grave (2009)

"Expo '70 bass/synth player Matt Hill has gone solo. His debut LP under the Umberto moniker is an analog masterpiece heavily influenced by the classic film score work of Goblin, except arguably better. From the moment you drop the needle, you'll be transported to Italy as an extra in a vintage horror flick directed by Dario Argento. This is some of the most accessible, yet totally authentic sounding music of the 'giallo' genre we've ever heard. It was previously only available as a hyper limited edition CD-R and cassette tape via Sonic Meditations."

Tracklist:

1. Opening Titles - 1:07
2. Running Blade - 5:54
3. Forsaken Dawn - 6:23
4. The Child - 6:38
5. Intermission - 0:57
6. It Came From The Swamp - 7:36
7. Dream Sequence - 5:51
8. Shower Scene - 6:18
9. In The Name Of Zuel - 5:33
10. End Credits - 4:41

Umberto - Prophecy Of The Black Widow (2010)

“The one UMBERTO performance we had the rad fortune to bear witness to involved at least a dozen dudes, dads, and ladies all on stage wearing sunglasses at night and shredding keyboards / keytars bathed in a sea of fog machinery and strobe lights and extraterrestrially-costumed interpretive dancers. Shit was BEYOND. Umberto mastermind MATT HILL allegedly went to legit music school back in the day and used to play bass for EXPO 70 (Justin/Expo released the debut Umberto tape/CDR, From The Grave, on his Sonic Meditations label) before splintering into his current electro-satanic Goblin worship guise—and we for one can’t get enough. Prophecy Of The Black Widow is his sophomore LP and though the badass evil Italo goth-synth horror-score blueprint of Grave remains, the main variation is subtle vibe-shift from ‘70s Argento/Carpenter-isms into more early/mid-’80s new wave creep-scapes. There’s still plenty of eerie nightmare keyboard riffs and vintage witch-disco breakouts but the synths squelch with more of a neon retrofuturist bent and there’s even one brazenly feelgood soaring-into-the-sunset closing credits anthem (the literally-titled ‘Everything Is Going To Be Okay’). Whatever prophecy Prophecy is foretelling, we’re on board. Black vinyl LPs in jackets with sick fake-3D lettering and art by SETH JOHNSON.”

Umberto - Night Has A Thousand Screams (2012)

Of all the Goblin/Fabio Frizzi indebted synthesizer fetishists to emerge over the last few years, Umberto has proven himself to be the most crucial, and probably the most versatile. Injecting the sound with a mischief and avoiding any whiff of zaniness, his last bevvy of records showed a surprising breadth of character, and this latest for Mogwai’s Rock Action record is possibly his most coherent to date. Funnily enough it was put together as a soundtrack for the Glasgow Music & Film Festival in February, and given an actual cinematic goal seems to have inspired the best out of our leather-gloved protagonist. ‘Night Has A Thousand Screams’ was pieced together with love and a deep appreciation for soundtracks passed, but in the same breath we’re not subjected to a simple retreading of ‘The Beyond’ and ‘Suspiria’. There’s a knowledge of contemporary electronic music in there, occasionally surfacing in ‘The Investigation’ and ‘Paralyzed’ which gives the album a backbone of modernity. Sure the Italian film soundtracks of 1975-1983 are the starting point, but Umberto has made this sound his own, and ‘Night Has A Thousand Screams’ is all the better for it.

Umberto - Confrontations (2013)

Following up the creepy goodness of last year’s ‘Night Has A Thousand Screams’, Italian horror soundtrack fetishist Umberto (aka Matt Hill) is back on home turf at Not Not Fun with ‘Confrontations’. The first indicator that we’re in for a different kind of ride though comes with opener ‘Night Fantasy’ that gives a nod to West Coast retro revivalist Johnny Jewel (and notably his contributions to the ‘Drive’ OST), and while it isn’t as explicitly horror-primed as his previous work, it shows Hill is equally as adept at spiky 70s electro as he is at gloomy synth-led terror. There’s a deviant pop side to ‘Confrontations’, and while there’s still more than just a hint of Fabio Frizzi and Piero Umilani in amongst the cavernous snares and fizzing analogue synths, for the most part the record is filled to the brim with flickering neons and half-visible memories of an alternate 1983. The title track itself might be the biggest clue; sure the warbling male chorus sounds might be straight out of Lucio Fulci’s hypnotic masterpiece ‘The Beyond’, but beneath the gothic ambience there’s a pulsing 4/4 and a bassline that’s surely aimed far above the church basement.
