THE MAZE OF VIOLENCE (IL LABIRINTO DI ROMA VIOLENTA)
12" Vinyl NL02.02.09
this obscure lost soundtrack for an even more obscure (and also lost and never finished) italia violenta cop movie was recently discovered when i bought the dusty reel tapes from a restaurant owner in fiumicino, a seaside town near rome. panter 777 aka il labirinto di roma violenta aka the maze of violence, he told me, was directed by gervasio giardano in 1981 and was considered too (politically) explicit by the movie production company who dropped the project after the first screening. the soundtrack, an explosion of wahwah funk riffs and juicy analog synthesizers, was composed by an obscure band called nacho patrol. the restaurant owner, who wishes to remain anonymous, was one of the band members and composed most of the tracks. (danny wolfers)
returning with another debut release, second circles eighth record to date comes this time from young viennese musician giuseppe leonardi. performed on an array of synthesizers and experimenting with spoken word and vocals from various local singers giuseppes tbc ep take us on a dance through the catacombs and out through the jungle floor with ritualistic rhythm and haunting song. whilst at other moments giuseppes horizontal ambient pieces leave us gazing out on the shores of a distant half-remembered planet.
wie der film ist der soundtrack ein bastard. soul, garage und rock ergeben einen lässigen retrosound. eine abgefahrene und gedenkwürdige mischung aus rammstein, james brown, den Ärzten, den white stripes und johnny cash.
you re alone and you close your eyes. don’t imagine figures of light, make the darkness conscious. it becomes deeper, not eyelids anymore, and then something is around you, but you can’t open your eyes, you’re deep inside them. merge into oneness, not bright above not dark below. something with has no echo. waves and motion, not space and time. if a tree falls in a forest where no one is listening, does it make a sound? there are no signs in the snow. why this dream of something cold? the world is blue at its edges, the colour of that which can never be possessed. blue flames, deep ice, twilight. how do you observe yourself without knowing that you’re looking? the other side of your face. why don’t you let the gap be a gap? i was afraid there was too much space. when you stop focusing the image appears. everything seen at once. turn yourself into a point to get behind the surface. a messenger between two worlds. the hidden meaning behind alchemy: to be born again. you’re not born into this world but out of it. travel by heat, words are too slow. sound knows how to get around edges, wiser than light.
personliga artiklar (personal items) is pure electrical energy from the bottom of rage to clean sanded adventurous sound hypnosis. slim vics music mixes sound worlds with clear impact in sound art and darkest ambient, likewise small flirts with underground-based techno and idm. the album is a selection of previously unreleased material mixed with music that only existed on single or remixed versions earlier, personal articles. one of sweden s most prominent artists in the spray painting, rolfcarlwerner, has created all the artwork for the album. the cover to the original painting was painted directly inspired by the album s sound world and was shown at the exhibition outside in 4.0 at the gallery erik axl sund in stockholm winter in 2016.
the remixed tracks from ascetic’s second album ‘everything is becoming’ are a collision between industrial techno, ebm influenced bass lines, doom and dark ambient. four berlin based artists: ancient methods, phase fatale, unhuman & luna violenta offer their take on the two opening tracks ‘utterings’ and ‘exegesis’ from the album. roared vocals, guitar both jagged, creepy and ambient, live drums and samples are all melted down and reformed into at times recognizable and at times wholly alien compositions, ancient methods, phase fatale and unhuman offer different approaches to techno punishment while luna’s interpretation is a cacophonous build that explodes into sonic abstraction. this ep is a perfect example of what berlin does so well, where genres that share aesthetic values feedback, overlap and inspire.

mixing uplifting disco piano, slamming breakbeats, electro-synth, funky rhodes, and pop vocals to create a catchy sound chopped up inna hiphop style - familiar to anybody and outstanding at the same time.
anyone who ever has listened to a live performance or a record of illeist collective knows of the difficulty to describe the sound they come up with. some say its big beat, some say its rock, electro or dance music. and as always, the truth is somewhere in between, somewhere along the lines of bands such as soulwax, digitalism or friendly fire. and the best way to find out is to listen to their energy-loaded, genre transcending and - most importantly - uncompromising music.
