Boomkat Product Review:
All you need to know about Manchester’s Claro Intelecto is collected and spread out over two volumes of ‘In Vitro’
Headed up by the anthemic title tune of his 2003 debut ‘Peace Of Mind EP’, which still has the capacity to make grown men cry within its opening bars, ‘In Vitro - Volume One’ is testament to the singular, classic sound of Mark Stewart aka Claro Intelecto - the Manchester-based producer who notably inspired Andy Stott to produce, and who dominated the mid-late ‘00s with his slew of warehouse-ready dance music for Ai and Modern Love.
Aside from the obvious gem, make sure to look out for the square bass sleaze of ‘Contact’ from the same release, plus the deep rarity ‘Heart (Warehouse Mix)’ - previously only available on a bonus 10” with ‘Reform’, and the MDMA-glow aura of ‘It’s Getting Late’. Actually rthere's tonnes of good shit on here...
