More commonly found indulging in muscular electro and techno for the likes of Clone, Scottish-Italian stalwart Marco Bernadi makes good on his move to Bristol by linking up with the Futureboogie crew for this foray into a lighter, house orientated affair. Driven by colourful arrangements of keys and chords, "Motorways" finds its groove with ease and happily rides it out for the duration. "Space Coral" shows a greater deference to the foundations of Detroit electro, letting glorious patterns of sci-fi melody come raining down on a steady house beat, while "Cosmic Aroma" gets into equally harmonious mischief with another bold deployment of synths courtesy of someone who knows how to handle them.
Last seen dropping the humongous Klinsfrar Melodies on Creme Org back in 2010, Glaswegian producer Marco Bernardi makes a triumphant return on Clone's Royal Oak initiative with The Burning Love Ensemble, a 12" replete with three potent examples of drenching simple, raw drum machine rhythms with endless layers of emotional melodies. The contemplatively titled "Days Gone By" infers what is to unfold as the track's ruff edged drum groove is driven ever backwards in the mix by layer upon layer of intricate sonic detail which is finely poised at the point of full meltdown. The title track seems like a more streamlined affair initially, all melodic elements aimed squarely for the stars before Bernardi lets loose with a thick square analogue bass tone and the drums start to go mental. Finally, "La Montagne De Reves" delves swiftly into immersive dream like territory, dragging you down willingly!
