In the wake of what has been a most creative year, VENTO EP is now out! With a combination of new work and remixes, Luca Bacchetti seems to have delineated his sonic territory: a non categorisable soundscape oscillating between electronica and techno. With its ethnic influences, VENTO EP is the natural evolution of the GENESIS double EP, released in January 2016.
VENTO (which in Italian means wind) was also one of the more intense moments of his DJ set at Burning Mans Robot Heart this year. It speaks clearly: travel is the common denominator of all of Lucas music, his 'sonic scenery, sounds that flow like moving images, as if we are watching the world unfold around us, precisely as if on a journey. Same thing for THE GREAT WIDE OPEN, where the colours are darker, sudden changes of scene tied together with elegance, as always a trademark of his work. Once again one has the sensation of holding a one way ticket to unforeseen destinations.
NOTHING TO LOSE is the most electronic track on the EP, echoes of trip hop leading us into darkness, pierced by flashes of light, the underlying tension and groove deepening and becoming more intense. Here we can appreciate the collaborations from Stefano Onorati on keys and Andrea Guzzoletti with his dramatic trumpet solo in the finale. The EP ends with THE BIRTH OF VENTO, a 12 minutes journey, an ambient interpretation of the tittle track. If its true that The answer is blowin in the wind, lets hear what VENTO EP has to tell us.
