Boomkat Product Review:
One of the Italian new wave's most distinctive producers, Hervè Atsè Corti does his frayed techno-house funk on a beguiling, buckwild debut album for Planet Mu.
After checking his previous LPs and singles for Delsin, All City Records and DBA, it's perhaps fair to say that Herva's music is symptomatic of his era; imagine if Anthony Shakir or Pepe Braddock started to make deep house and techno with the fractured attention spans and distracting information overload of the internet age - and it may well sound like the music in Kila.
It all bears a resemblance to the most crucial, leftfield operations of electronica, house and techno over the last two decades but, it's more distinguished by a sense of temporal displacement, of frayed-nerve uncertainty, making for a much trippier and craftily challenging listen than many who preceded him in the same area.
For a narcotic analogy: it's more DMT than THC; from the stuttering folds of Trying To Fix Invisible Textures to the almost OPN-like whorls of Disk Alt and the stereo-cleaving dimensions of Fog he's physically dissolving the boundaries, purposefully colouring out of the lines to let it all bleed and roil with adroit, chaotic funk.
