moving across the dynamics of feelings and rythms of matter, oltrarno recordings presents “observing organic structures”, a mini lp produced from the duo raccoglimento parziale. the breath of analog machines tarnishes the infinite mirrors of possibilities. our duo wants us to absorb their work not only with the ears, but through all our pores. attention becomes our antenna. to refine this package, long time friend of the duo spacetravel, who just released his debut double-ep on perlon, elaborates his personal view with a full galloping remix.
raccoglimento parziale is a project by stefano meucci and andrea giachetti
written and recorded in pausenraum, berlin, 2015.
mastered by stephan betke at scape, berlin.
artwork by juana anzellini, von der serie “anonyme”, 2015.
it s all about omni a.m. coming up in chicago, pioneering american tech-house duo omni am relocated to new york where they refined their uncompromising style of psychedelic dance music. -smurfette s big night,- ridiculous title and all, appeared on the group s 2000 ep, -new york sessions- - the first in a string of critically acclaimed underground classics recorded in their brief but prolific time in the city. this rare and much-coveted track has finally been remastered and released with new remixes by spacetravel and dewalta & shannon.
alphahouse welcomes kai to the family, with the dazzling 3-track ep >gakuon< his debut release came last year on portables sud electronic label, and put him on our ones-to-watch list. now kai delivers his second ep and its a killer. with so much music in the world following the same patterns, and producers sucked into using the same cheap tricks in the studio, its refreshing to hear that some people out there are still capable of independent and abstract thought. we hope you agree. >ac< is a mutant deep techno piece equally suitable for dark club mayhem as it is for sunday brunch with the in-laws. seriously, try it out at both places and if it doesnt work the next beer is on us. >spacetravel< is exactly that. a micro-sampled ride though the cosmos. tiny vocal spurts and playful melodies surround a throbbing bassline. stripped just to the groove and not over-arranged, theres plenty of room to let your imagination roam free. >gravity< is one of those special inside tracks that we search so long and hard for. delightfully simplistic, yet incredibly groovy. its amazing how much you can do with a few well-placed sounds, isnt it?
