Spazio Disponibile welcomes yet another new artist to their realm. This time the label welcomes producer Grand River for its 11th release, and one that marks something of a new direction where ambient and experimental music will sit next to more dance floor fare. It’s a direction already hinted at with Marco Shuttles full album earlier this year, and is now realised once more by Aimée Portioli. She is a multi instrumentalist, soundtrack composer and known for her deep and atmospheric sound and debuts on Donato Dozzy and Neel’s label with four lush ambient explorations.
Across the course of the tracks, fizzing, grainy ambiance makes way for dark atmospheres, then brighter synths arrive late on to bring some light to the shadows. Elsewhere, undulating rhythms sway down low as muted keys and strings ripple in the distance. It makes for a cavernous world that keeps you in blissful suspense and overall this EP is a trip through a dark underground cavern with a spring day high up above. As well as this brilliantly cerebral EP, the future will also bring more Spazio label nights across the world starting in 2018.
