following a killer debut on optimo trax michele mininni debuts on r&s with the heavy hitting psych detonation of ‘rave oscillations’ hailing from southern italy, mininni s influences run to kraut, post rock, new wave and electronic amongst others, a long time dj he manages to condense his influences into beguiling productions that come as a welcome breath of originality. taking a heavy dose of inspiration from seminal kraut groovers silver apples, ‘rave oscillations’ builds from the hypnotic motorik groove and off kilter bass into a pulsing peak time anthem. on the flip, ‘vortex stasi’ takes things into a more psychedelic direction - dubbed out piano, jittery rhythms and spiralling swathes of guitar blossom into a truly tripped out, squalling, breakneck concoction. mininni s kaleidoscopic musical vision is a truly unique proposition, a myriad of different styles and genres deformed under his oblique lens to create sun-drenched space music.
michele mininnis hyper martino ep is a strange adventure in sound, the finest example of music noir and engaging story of audio science fiction. michele hails from south italy and counts everything from post-punk, krautrock to new wave, house and disco amongst his influences. hes been a dj for years but only in 2014 has released his debut tupolev love ep on glasgows optimo trax. he immediately found himself in the spotlight of discerning djs and music collectors alike. after a few months he released another highly acclaimed ep entitled endless ceremony on belgian label curle. and now, after a short hiatus he returns with his latest hyper martino ep radiating oblique and unpredictable sounds. remixes come courtesy of tel aviv’s hit-assembly-line red axes who yet again deliver a bloody good remix, and of a reckless new age traveller, industrial-yoga-trance guru and australian multi culturist dreems.le temps perdu is a new label founded by lemmy caution, a man of mistery, a fan of steal mustangs, robot poetry and otherworldly sounds, well know across the outlands and operating from alphaville. the vinyl release includes a download code.
