Balance / Lucianno Lamanna :: Double review (Scudiera / Subsound)

There’s a revival of techno in Italy and Lamanna, and like-minded musicians, are at the coal face. Psychological, at times bordering on serpentine, a deep and brooding sound has been sculpted out of ashen images and industrial clatter. It can be hard to keep up with artists, some more so than others. At times it […]

Beneath the surface of Blackwater :: Interview and Mix

And what is that sound? Techno I would say. Not specific enough? Add some of the following and you’ll get a picture. Black. Psychological. Industrial. Melancholic. Introverted. All styles that the London/Rome label of Blackwater has explored in its two year life. I was chatting with Marco Moreno Graziano of Analogic Density about electronic music […]

Der Noir :: Blue (Love Blast/Subsound)

Blue depicts that line between elation and melancholy, expanding the boundary dividing these emotions to produce a superb piece of electronics. I first came across Der Noir way back when. Well, maybe not way back but when they a remix project of their work came out on Minimal Rome. Little did I know that I’d […]

V/A & Phooka :: Double review (Love Blast)

These are sounds of real anguish, where economic migration is the reality and the price of bread on the table means a family member missing from the meal.

Assalti Industriali :: Assalto Primero (Instruments of Discipline)

Instruments of Discipline and Love Blast have been painting in ash and grey since they opened their wind-burnt doors. These Italian imprints are not searching for the sun, instead shadow […]

Lunar Lodge / Mai Mai Mai :: LL/MMM (Love Blast / Instruments of Discipline)

A vacuum of distortion and drone draws air from lungs, horror pouring from blurred thump and fuzzed out fear. Instruments of Discipline. If you’re wondering whether or not the name of the new sub-label from Love Blast is an indicator of what will follow let me tell you from the outset, it is. This is […]

Stefano Rocchi & Moonlite Bunny Ranch :: Double review (Love Blast)

Cyclical rhythms brooded over my maniacal musicians with mutated melodies on their mind, and at their fingertips. I only discovered the Love Blast label a couple of months back, but the Italian imprint’s blatant disregard for the norm has really made an impact on me. The Rome label tinkers and toys with the parameters of […]

Knick Knack Yoda & Love Blast :: Stoking Dismay

Unsettling and sinister vinyl from the catacombs below the Italian capital. I’ve always enjoyed the exploratory nature of unearthing electronic music. Starting off with an artist or label, burrowing into backgrounds and delving into the detail. This, in a way, is how I came across the two Italian labels. Following my review of Lunar Lodge […]
