RM - Unfit (LP)
Captivating slab of cyborganic techno sensations by northern Italy’s Riccardo Mazza (from the Lettera 22 duo), making his full solo vinyl debut for iDEAL Recordings.
Mazza is a veteran of the same, Treviso-based punk scene that spawned Ninos Du Brasil, and he’s made a probing transition from noisy rock music thru to more abstract, rhythm-based and electronic realms over the years.
Operating on the liminal edge of minimal techno, post-industrial and concrète ambience, his productions are ripe for darker-minded dancefloors, sustaining a momentum and gloomy pallor that doesn’t shift from start to finish, coursing thru from the coiled title track, thru the Kenji Kawai-sampling, panic-inducing stepper Height, to the muddied trample of Come Back and the Raime-like Loss, to buckle and wretch with the bloody-nosed electro of Edge and a slow stygian punt entitled Unplaced.
CONDITION: NEW & UNPLAYED
