Before dropping releases on Nite Grooves, Izu and Deep Down Slam, Gianni 'Washerman' Siravo was a regular contributor to Drumpoet Community. The Awakening marks his return to Alex Dallas and Ron Shiller's imprint after three years away. There's plenty of playable fodder on show, from the techno-influenced, acid-and-organs stomp of "Traction", to the early trance influences, Italian style dreaminess and throbbing rhythm of "Still Life". "Aurrora", too, is decidedly Balearic in tone, despite its' deep house construction, while "The Awakening" follows a darker, more European path. While its' cymbals scream "Detroit techno", its jaunty synth stabs and undulating electronics recall vintage Frank De Wulf productions from the turn of the '90s.
