Dozzy! Dozza! The Big Doz! Everyone’s favourite Italian polyrhythmic techno don returns to Tresor Records with a four track EP 124 which includes this headscramblingly relentless chugger. “Down the rabbit hole we go!!” I’d probably say if I were an ageing music PR with a fairly limited vocabulary and not enough time to come up with something more original. Oh wait…
A while back I posted about Raggio verde, the first track of a new project by Andrea Noce (Eva Geist) and Donato Scaramuzzi aka Donato Dozzy aka one of my very favourite electronic producers of all time. It turns out that I’m such a big fan of his that I completely missed the release of the full, self-titled album last month. Anyway, it’s brilliant, and Sfere di Qi is just one of many of the tracks that balance Dozzy’s trademark hypnotic polyrhythms with Geist’s wonderfully evocative vocals.
Il Quadro di Troisi is a new project by Andrea Noce (Eva Geist) and Donato Scaramuzzi aka Donato Dozzy aka one of the greatest electronic producers of all time, and one half of Voices From The Lake, who are responsible for the best mix ever. If you’ve come here expecting stripped-back, hypnotic dub techno however, you’re in the wrong place. Il Quadro Di Troisi is inspired by the late Italian actor and director Massimo Troisi and looks to pay tribute tribute to Italian popular music over the decades, touching on Italo disco, synth pop and more, all of which are harnessed in Raggio Verde.
German label Raster will release full album 16 October digitally, and on vinyl and CD 13 November. Until then, bask in the nostalgic greatness of the Green Ray.
