The very first track on The Aquaplano Sessions begins with a saw-tooth growl which drops with a kick coming in on a second bar (where the snare should be), and I’m immediately thrown off, unable to readjust the clock in my head in sync with the rhythm. This restored collaboration between Donato Dozzy and Nuel is brought to us courtesy of Spectrum Spools imprint, an offshoot of Editions Mego created by John Elliott and Peter Rehberg to release limited edition vinyl from “the finest in forward thinking modern music.” The narcotic rhythms of minimal techno and deep atmospheric ambiance swirls in patterns of slowly progressing pieces, consecutively numbered “Aqua 1″ through “Aqua 8″. The tracks indeed emerged from the reclusive Aquaplano records, an San Felice Circeo (Italy) based studio, originally composed back in 2007-2008. “The influences these Italians were drawing on were rather different, returning to tribal rhythms and ambient textures to sketch out a much more heady, psychedelic form of techno. The results were a perfect balance of hypnotic beats and swirling atmosphere geared for a broken-in dancefloor or the hazy afterhours.” Following this soporific transit I got a bit thrown off by the artist names. You see, a group known by the name Voices From The Lake is composed of Donato Scaramuzzi (that’s the very same Donato Dozzy) and Giuseppe Tillieci (who’s also known as Neel). The latter is different than Nuel, who’s real name is actually Manuel Fogliata. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this welcome flashback!
