Alessandro Adriani makes a surprising addition to Berlin techno imprint Stroboscopic Artefacts. The forward thinking label that dwells on the more experimental fringes of dancefloor sounds now taps a fellow Italian and Mannequin Records boss who serves up some fascinating techno derivatives. Harnessed no doubt by his time living in Berlin, but also put in practice as one half of An-I with NYC legend Douglas Lee. Much like Lee, Adriani gives an outsider’s perspective on powerful body music by way of industrial sounds and experimentation with analogue electronics. “He Who Harnesses The Soul” opens proceedings in impressive fashion – we’ve never heard Adriani execute something so direct on this tunnelling and hypnotic stomper that will have huge crossover appeal. It’s more like the artist we know on the brooding and powerful stomp of “Rituals” (707 EBM version). Finally we get treated to yet another minimalist and trance inducing number on “Astronomy” reminiscent of Sahko or Sleeparchive‘s sublime spell casting in the mid noughties.
