Since launching in 2012, Cristalli Liquidi's Artifact label has found a bosom buddy in Bottin. The Italian producer is by far and away the imprint's most prolific artist, with this fine two-tracker marking his seventh appearance on the imprint. Lead cut "Respirare" is particularly good. While the raw, analogue-rich, Italo-disco style bottom end tends towards the tough and sleazy, the musical elements that sit on top of it - warm deep house chords, dream house style improvised vocal snippets and lilting melodies - are unmistakably picturesque and loved up. 'Waterland" is an altogether quirkier but no less impressive composition, with Bottin re-imagining calypso-tinged tropical disco with the aid of some cheap drum machines and all manner of cheery sounding synthesizer motifs.
