Boomkat Product Review:
Freakish 90bpm bewts from Lorenzo Senni’s Presto!?, introducing the slow slugs of Vipra, who hails from the Roman banlieues of Torpignattara.
Prompting strong parallels with ghetto music from Lisbon to Caracas as much as the muggy cyber punk styles of Dracula Lewis or Primitive Art, the Musica Jao EP showcases a heavy-lidded, red-eyed style defined by screwed hardstyle tropes, salty noise and generally spare, surreally cartoonish arrangements that never quite resolve themselves, suggesting and leaving much to the ‘floor’s imagination.
Musical Oro sounds something like an overweight TCF who just railed a line of ket thinking it was MD, and Lotteria feels like passing out in the middle of a fairground. Presenturo comes hardest with slow, recoiling kicks and one drop rave stabs ran over with fast cars, and Uomo Tuono nails a wickedly furtive, atmospheric blend of eerie techno-folk melody and computer game FX to an insistent Italo Slowstyle groove.
