After 2 VA releases that have been massively supported by none else than Ricardo Villalobos himself, this time Fortezza Records features an EP from a single artist, plus a remix to round off the project. Niro Perrone, coowner of Unclear Records and one of the minds behind Klang Club in Italy, offers up 3 brand new tracks 100% his style: the guy has a knack for writing intricate compositions, yet retaining a freshness and a catchy vibe that capture the listener right away thanks to a fine sound designing mixed with an ear for charming music. Different in style but all drenched in analogue sounds, the tracks veer off into experimental territory for most of the time. “Don’t Play With Cactus” heavy pounding kick drum and distorted tones all over flow along computer noises and schizoid vocal
snippets. Its remix comes courtesy of Alli Borèm, who turns the original into a darker and faster number, speeding it up to a galloping rhythm and frenzied pace. “Dans La Keys” is chockfull of synth stabs, robotic claps and percussions, while a psychedelic pad melody blends with a keyboard intermezzo, creating a perfect balance between House and Acid.
“Sidewalk Stories” is dreamy and sweet, its whispering voices gracing the celestial and ethereal atmospheres.
