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.
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.
italian duo hiver present the spiritual machines ep, their debut on obscura. inverted scale brandishes a hypnotic synth lead that swirls into a formidable energy. the title track is a meditative ambient cut immersed in deep waters, whilst glass effect? exposes a similar form with radiant sonic properties. on the b side, orbe turns the title track into a low slung basement workout, whilst crossing avenues rework of rj45 channels psytrance and rave sentiments.
