after the powerful excursion of last year s calcata, neel returns to token with transition. conceptually based around four elements in the group known as the transition metals and recorded live in one take, each track is a mind-bending trip through the periodic table that retains the human touch of a live performance.
tikita welcomes neel for a first release in collaboration with label mainstays natural/electronic.system. the four tracks here cover deep, rolling, dubby tribal techno. the opener is sparse and dark, gracida is more urgent and alien with watery droplets and wet melodies, then sinistra is mind melting and loopy techno that takes you into the cosmos. last of all, percussiva has supple jeff mills style synths warping round each other as heavy drums pound below. it is brilliantly consuming techno from some of the best in the game.
best known for his ambient excursions as voices from the lake alongside donato dozzy, neel joins token with the 4-track calcata. from his collaborations with dozzy to his solo work for their joint-run label spazio disponibile, neels studio experience as a mastering engineer has gained him recognition as a producer who pays great attention the technical aspects of his sound.
for anyone with their pulse on cutting edge music, neel is synonymous with quality. he s one half of the critically acclaimed duo, voices from the lake (with donato dozzy), and here he teams up with his studio partner, filippo scorcucchi. the pair present a project called lf58 (named after neel s mastering/recording studio in rome) for our latest instalment in the late night innominate series. three untitled ambient tracks all created with modular synthesizers, full of emotion and technical brilliance. also worth noting, side a is over 16 minutes of pure bliss!
the tenth release on the spazio disponibile label comes from co-founder neel and marks his first solo ep ever. the italian dj, producer and mastering engineer is known for his supple and subtle techno both solo or as one half of voices from the lake with donato dozzy. previous solo outings appeared on labels like prologue and spectrum spools, and now he shows off his sound design skills once more across three compelling and intense techno cuts on his own label.
all tracks produced, written and mixed by giuseppe tillieci a.k.a. neel. recorded in rome and curinga between summer 2013 spring 2014. track 4 contains elements recorded in rome, courtesy of filippo scorcucchi. mastered by giuseppe tillieci at enisslab studio in rome.
this is techno 2011! donato dozzy comes back on prologue with his mate neel. the new brilliant collaboration between them shows how techno sounds today. the 4 drop tracks are deeply emotional designed and each of this drop have his own unique character from ambient to techno!
music can be far removed from reality, a distant memory, in the greatest sense of that removal. when youre listening to music and suddenly you find your mind and body released, so you dive very deep into the sounds and abandon your everyday thoughts and cares, thats enough to make you realise you have an extraordinary piece of music in your hands. with the upcoming album from voices from the lake (aka donato dozzy and neel) this is the feeling to be realised from this engaging piece of music. the two artists have a fantastic feeling for deep and sensuous rhythms, something they have explored so thoroughly with this ambient techno project that they have quite exceeded expectations. voices from the lake was first performed at the reknowned labyrinth festival in japan this year and is now presented in the album format. the complete album shows how emotional and multi-dimensional electronic music can be on nova days. its more than just a strong statement from two accomplished artists, its an emotional journey designed for you to lose your grip with reality in a most positive way.
ARGONAUT EP (NEEL, POLAR INERTIA REMIXES) (180G VINYL)
12" Vinyl NL13.07.18
we remain suspended, fluctuating
in these waters of unknown wellness
flooded by a silence of emotions.
emotions that make our loneliness
more deep, clear and awful.
as nails that dig died skins,
as eyes that bleed making skins acid
as hair that strangles the crowd s voices
in this air rarefied by thoughts
to make us more conscious of the restless lack
of the hope from us stolen.
substrato continues its path through the research of sounds from the hidden worlds. the label returns with the first various artist called “submerged worlds”. this release is marked out by the juxtaposition of artists coming from different areas lead together by the exploration of sharpened sounds, contributing to this timeless installment.
