We Drift In And Out   KROK016

A C60 mixtape from Alessandro Adriani, boss of Mannequin Records…On the A-side: bargain-bin hard techno and trance detritus from the early ‘90s, pitched down to 33, whipped up to +8, and reborn as mid-tempo, hard-jacking, ‘draxed-out body music, faintly reminiscent of – if anything – the early Goa sound. It’s an ingenious reversal, or perversion, of how things really went down: alchemizing ersatz italo and sludgy new beat out of high-velocity club gear, rather than the other way round.

Pitch-control rests at 0 for the B-side, a focus on the ambient works of a certain contemporaneous Roman producer who’s better known for hitting it hard.
