Heinrich Dressel :: The Styx Swamp (Barba)

In spite of the electro coolness running through the record there is also an inviting techno undertone. Lombardozzi finds an enviable equilibrium between fluid waterways and firmer ground, an island of texture and turbulence. Barba Records is a pretty curious imprint, as is its parent label Burek.

Teslasonic :: Electrical Oscillator Activity (Minimal Rome)

Amidst complex abstraction are moments of human frivolity, playful funk laden bars. Hopefully this return will mean more from the future gazing Teslasonic.

V/A :: Urbi et Orbi Vol III (Minimal Rome)

There’s a wonderful variety across the album, of established artists and new names, of musical styles and ideas. Turn a corner and you’re listening to Electro, next it’s mutating Acid, next its Industrial Ambience, next House. There is an unbelievable spread of sounds across Urbi Et Orbi III, but without the album becoming cluttered or […]

Heinrich Dressel :: Vicolo Cieco (MinimalRome)

There are few artists that make what Heinrich Dressel does, rich movie score pieces of electro. The tracks are drenched in analogue depth, echoing the Arp and Moog moods of John Carpenter, mixed with some of the edge of giallo films and vintage fiat engines [Purchase | Listen] Heinrich Dressel is back to his home […]
