Loris Grimaldi is a new artist, and Arnaud Le Texier's label deserves kudos for providing this platform to showcase his work. Fans of Mike Parker and Sandwell District's tunnelling techno will be impressed by the mesmerising, hypnotic pulses and atmospheric chords of "Orlo Esterno" and "Equivoco". Meanwhile on "Estirpazione", a more brooding sound is audible, with Grimaldi conjuring up warbling bleeps and a stepping rhythm. However, Catarsi isn't just about menacing underground techno, and "Ricordo" is led by warm, layered melodies and a mellow pulse. Rounding off this fine release is label regular Antonio De Angelis' tripped out, acid-soaked interpretation of "Ricordo".
