Drafted - Frames From The Lake
Debut EP from new Italian producer delivers blueprint Techno
Debut EP from new Italian producer Giuseppe Fatalino, going by the name Drafted, delivers blueprint Techno for Dutch label Balans; the opening couple of tracks in particular demonstrating perfectly the hallowed alliance of Ambient and Techno.
The eerie atmosphere of title track Frames From The Lake immediately transports you to a distant utopia, like the opening scene of a film, before the proper dialogue begins with the thumping Frequency Graven; this type of contrast is tried and tested and works well here. The hot pace is reflected on the B-side with the frenzied textures of Shaded Impacted and Vortex Empire, the latter introducing some soothing synths to close things out nicely.
