next up on donato dozzy and neels spazio disponibile label is close friend and italian producer marco shuttle. the eerie label-boss is a regular on the label having put out his systema album here last year, as well as his flauto synthetico ep in 2016. his always meticulously crafted sound is rooted in dark, cavernous techno. he finds plenty of new ground in each new release, though, with some tracks being haunting ambient works and others more propulsive rhythms. this new ep features just that across four typically inventive and absorbing tracks that are as much for your head as they are for your heel.
spazio disponibile hits release number 13 in style with a collaborative effort between label co-founder donato dozzy and longtime friends retina.it. it is a typically experimental release that features five weird and wonderful tracks, seeing the label taking yet another dip into the more leftfield areas of electronic music.
opener laguna is a loopy, liquid track of fluttering drums and rubbery kicks that never lets up. ortica is more gloopy and wonky, with firmer kicks and aqueous sounds dripping off the groove, while lyra is beautifully delicate and intricate, with underwater life forms drifting by as gentle xylophones sounds dance around. the masterful minimalism continues on the dark, undulating and alien vilipendio, and things round out with the paranoid voices and panning synths of mekong , an unsettling track that has you looking over your shoulder.
for its ninth release, italian label spazio disponible looks to countryman marco shuttle for a first full length. systhema comes three years after his last album on his own eerie label and finds him again focussing on an absorbing ambient techno style across eight enthralling cuts. shuttle layers sound in subtle ways and has a meticulous attention to detail that results in a cinematic techno style that is cavernous and hypnotizing. always operating in a region where ambient, techno and heady soundtracks become one, with this album marco shuttle once again confirms he is one of the finest sonic sculptors out there.
italian label spazio disponibile continues its fine run of form with a new ep that features four collaborative tracks by the bosses voices from the lake (aka donato dozzy and neel) versus semantica boss svreca. the ep is a result of their first studio session all together in rome. all three have been perfecting cinematic ambient techno for years now and have the cerebral, atmospheric aesthetic down to a tee. here they offer up proof across a series of hypnotic tracks that take you deep into your own mind. it s alien and abstract yet wholly consuming and will zone you out in no time.
50% deal - spazio disponibile welcomes yet another new artist to their realm. this time the label welcomes producer grand river for its 11th release, and one that marks something of a new direction where ambient and experimental music will sit next to more dance floor fare. it s a direction already hinted at with marco shuttles full album earlier this year, and is now realised once more by aimee portioli. she is a multi instrumentalist, soundtrack composer and known for her deep and atmospheric sound and debuts on donato dozzy and neel s label with four lush ambient explorations. across the course of the tracks, fizzing, grainy ambiance makes way for dark atmospheres, then brighter synths arrive late on to bring some light to the shadows. elsewhere, undulating rhythms sway down low as muted keys and strings ripple in the distance. it makes for a cavernous world that keeps you in blissful suspense and overall this ep is a trip through a dark underground cavern with a spring day high up above. as well as this brilliantly cerebral ep, the future will also bring more spazio label nights across the world starting in 2018.
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.
next up on spazio disponibile is a pair of artists who played the party of the same name at goa, rome last year. their name is crossing avenue and their mo is to make experimental techno in a hi fidelity style that is as cerebral as it is physical. here they do so across four fantastic tracks.
once again, donato dozzy and neels spazio disponibile label has come correct with a fantastic new ep, this time from donato dozzy in collaboration with us artist mike parker. parker has a very unique and well styled brand of techno that fits in perfectly with the deeply hypnotic sounds favoured by dozzy. together they cook up four more brain frying cuts that are expertly crafted and meticulously sculpted
keeping up their fine schedule, the spazio disponibile label is back with a fifth excellent ep, this time from modes. modes is an artist who is making his debut here, and he is one of a few guys spazio is creating a platform for in the coming months. modes fits right in with the deeply subliminal, transcendental style of the label and its associated party in rome. opener m52 is a supple and sci-fi mix of smooth rubber kicks and millsian melodies that are trippy and hypnotic. m51 is darker and moodier, with smeared pads and grainy ambience making for a big and shadowy chamber of end-of-days techno that is full of foreboding, and finally m44 is more forceful and brutal, with reverb and electricity static adding texture to the cavernous airwaves. compelling from start to finish, this is a fantastic debut from modes.
donato dozzy and neel s spazio disponibile keeps up the pressure here with a fine fourth ep of 2016, this time from mike parker. the label - which also has a party of the same name in rome attached to it - deals in heady techno, so the geophone label owner and new york artist parker is a perfect fit with his always deep offerings.
