The Cracks #2
An irregular series that aims to net the best releases before they fall through the cracks for good
Third part in the young Italian producer's esteemed Deep Blue series is the finest Ambient Techno being made at the moment.

Not just a pandemic album, this five track "sonic journal" may be a fig leaf to a temporary world, a moment of respite, but using tape loops, guitar pedals and generative techniques, it's a revealing conversation between artist and technology.
