Boomkat Product Review:
Dry but playfully kinetic experiments in rhythm-driven minimalism from persistent explorer Andrea Taeggi of Gondwana and Lumisokea esteem
In a play of contrasts Taeggi ’s ‘Batch 0011’ is coarsely split between its slower and uptempo halves. In the slower sections of ‘Inscape’ and ‘Capricci’ he uses the slower tempo to open out and colour the space with discretely harmonised hues and expressively chattering electronics in a way recalling Bellows’ roughly plotted, sensitively haptic style.
On the other hand his uptempo works have the potential to get under a dancefloor’s skin, working up a bristling, driving sort of electro-acid groove in the salty writhe of ‘F.R.B.’, and again in a way recalling Byetone on the hypnotic shuffle of ‘Vanitas’.
