This weeks record was produced by TVA, another emerging Techno duo from Italy worth keeping a close eye on. All of their music creates a real synthesis between the more industrial and ethereal aspects of the genre which is what makes them so interesting. ‘Forty Seven’ does this particularly effectively. The evocative concoction of spaced out synth lines and jarring Techno samples work very nicely. In turn they cross-pollinate to create a dreamy and harrowing soundscape that could be experienced in multiple scenarios. At 5:30 PM in a relaxed beachfront bar, or at 4 AM, driving the dance floor in a trance to the early hours of the next morning. This kind of diversity is a hard trick to pull off.
‘Forty Seven’ was released on Soulfooled, one of Alex Niggemanns flags-ship labels. They’re being noticed, for good reason, by the right people.
