Addendum to Italo hero Fred Ventura’s ‘Future Unknown: The Lost House Trax 1988-1992’ album, packing Alessandro Adriani’s extended edit of ‘Technologies’ plus four exclusives edging on New Beat and acid house
Adriani’s sleek arps and lip-smacking pads in the edit make for a big highlight, while there’s also a spot of Kraftwerk-esque New Beat electro in ‘Afraid To Dance’, plus the chunky jack of ‘Looking For The Western Beat (Year Zero Mix)’, the smooth dream house purr of ‘The Endless Journey’, and the wistful electro wiggle of ‘Lost Memories.’
Silent Servant injects Alessandro Adriani’s ‘Fuoco’ with potent EBM Funk
Mannequin boss Adriani unfurls an extended mix of his murky EBM trek across the front, riddled with virulent, searching arps and pinned into place by hard working snares.
But the real gear is in the remix by EBM expert Silent Servant, who adds cracking snare reinforcements, retuned arps and shearing metallic noise to the mix with a more strapping, stroppy effect for the muscle Marys and pencil-necked geeks with slick-down side partings.
