Boomkat Product Review:
Stunning mini album from Leonardo Martelli for Antinote; if you loved his lush Menti Singole 12”, no doubt you’ll swoon hard for this one too!
Practically a mini album in length, Previsto proves he’s no one-trick stallion with a further look into his unique prism of post-Detroit electro, rough-but-slippy textures and noctilucent chords framed like some lost soundtrack to a homemade, proto X-Files noir about an occult mafia.
It rides a taut line between rude grooves and beautifully gloomy synth atmospheres, rolling up the tuff crack and Badalamenti chord progression of L’immaginario beside the heads-down, Biggie-sampling ace, Negli abissi and what sounds like SAW-era AFX covering The Cure in Leggende metropolitan.
At its apex, La Luna reveals deepest pop sympathies somewhere close to classic Nite Jewel, and it’s game-on again with the electro power swerve of Il Registro, whereas Lo Schema sounds like a possessed modem and the siren-screaming end credits of Previsto leave us gasping for the next episode.
