This London-based Italian producer has just a handful of releases to his credit, but has already developed an ability to creatively fuse existing sounds and styles. The title track is a good example: rich, warm chords surge and flow over a stripped back, razor-sharp minimal rhythm, equal parts inspired by Rob Hood and Basic Channel. On "Armadura", de Angelis teases out dubby techno over scuffled, juddering beats that are coated in spine-tingling acid lines. Gynoid has also chosen the remixers wisely: Advanced Human lends his breezeblock beats and metallic percussion to his version of the title track, while Mattias Fridell pushes "Armadura" into a tunnelling groove.
