MEDIA FORMAT 12", EP
Mongrando, Italy’s Kreggo has been releasing his unique twist on contemporary electronic sounds via the likes of Lobster Theremin, 10 Pills Mate, ARTS, Infinite Machine, Return To Disorder and Serotonin over the years as well as heading up his own art-aud imprint which traverses through styles ranging from downtempo to dancehall, breaks, bass and more. Here with his latest EP for Italy’s Nottetempo he once again allows all of his musical influences to shine through across the five-track ‘Rally della Lana’ EP.
‘Rising High’ sets the tone with ethereal chords, wandering bass tones, squelchy acid licks and modulating percussion before ‘Talking Stars Cabin’ lays down bumpy syncopated rhythms, oscillating synth tones and dynamic atmospherics. ‘Mcshea’ follows to open the B-side and shifts focus over to skippy, jazzy-tinged drums, murky bass drones and shimmering resonant tones. ‘Small Town Girl’ is up next and embraces a liquid D&B feel via amen breaks, elongated subs, and soft textural pads before ‘Soundtrack For A Film That Doesn’t Exist Yet’ rounds out the release on ambient tip, laid out across four minutes with slowly unfurling synth sequence and vacillating low-end tones.
