Review: Following on from last year's collaboration with DJ Plead, Anunaku aka Guglielmo Barzacchini flies solo for this killer release on AD 93 (formerly Whities). "Spirale" revolves around a throbbing, hypnotic groove and clicking percussion, with these elements underpinning tense vocals and dramatic, operatic wails. Meanwhile, "Ninfea" is more full-on and sees Anunaku drop dense tribal beats, cheese wire percussion and tranced out synth hooks. "Luminosa" marks another shift in sound, as Barzacchini ups the tempo. Dropping a rolling techno groove that is powered by steely hi-hats, it also features a dramatic finale comprising epic synth hooks and frazzled bass tones.
Review: It's time to up those rhythmic impulses as we dive into one the grooviest projects we have heard this year thus far, as Anunaku join forces with the 3024 team for packet of percussive panashe on their 'Stargate' EP. We kick off with the rolling drum work and the rhythmically led flavours of the title track 'Stargate', before we play witness to the fusion of eastern melodies and subtle breakbeat sampling in 'Teleported'. Finally, the project rounds off with a bang as the percussive influences are left to run wild once again on 'Atlas4088', giving us an incredibly vibrant sign out.
Review: Whities return here for their twenty fourth official drop, inviting in Anunaka for a drop of breaksy creativity, which he delivers in stunning form over these three new badboy originals. Let's begin with a look at 'Temples', a real workhorse of a tune, combining organic, nostalgic sounding breakbeat patterns with grizzly horn textures and minimal subs to give it a real industrial edge. Next, the party really sets alight as the incredible percussive work of 'Bronze Age' stomps into the centre of play with immediate impact, before rounding the project off with the funky drum slaps and fun melodies of 'Forgotten Tales'. If you're looking for a project to kick off the dance, look no further!
