Boomkat product review for:

claro intelecto - Neurofibro

**Vinyl version is different to the cd – none of the tracks from the two EP’s “Piece of Mind” or “Section” are included, and 4 tracks are totally exclusive to this format.** The simple fact is that Techno and Electro albums don’t tend to work. When they do, everyone sits up and takes notice. Think Derrick May’s “Innovator” , Carl Craig’s “More Songs About Food and Revolutionary Art”, Jeff Mills’ “Waveform Transmissions”, The Other People Place “Lifestyles of the Laptop Cafe’, Psyche / BFC’s ”Elements” and most recently Ricardo Vilalobos’ “Alcachofa”. That’s more than 15 years of Techno reduced to a handful of albums defining their moment, pushing the boundaries a little bit further. “Neurofibro” is one such rarity. An album that works from start to finish, taking in a myriad styles, paying homage to the masters and developing some new tricks all its own. Claro Intelecto first made an appearance in early 2003 - his remarkable “Peace of Mind” 12” fast becoming the most discussed dancefloor debut for years. The name for his hugely anticipated debut album ‘Neurofibro' derives from the nerve disease Neurofibromatosis - a set of genetic disorders which cause tumors to grow along various types of nerves and, in addition, can affect the development of non-nervous tissues such as bones and skin. It’s a disease that has accompanied Mark Stewart throughout the recording of his debut album - and has ironically provided him with its perfect Techno title. The album is a masterpiece of continuously shifting mood and tempo - controlling the floor from the Theo Parrish paced deep house of “Percentages” to the piano-driven soundscaping of “Baudrillards Supper” to the crushing Warehouse acid of “Back” to the ferocious electro soul of the commanding “Head Polution” and beyond. In the end all that’s needed to describe where exactly this record fits in is one word : CLASSIC. Album of the year, no doubt. ** vinyl tracklisting : 1] percentages 2] resonation 3] baudrillards supper 4] tria 5] language 6] section part 1 7] back 8] head polution 9] you not me 10] tierra quemada 11] nobody 12] your trophy **
