The tenth release of Secret Keywords sees the return of Stefano Rocchi, a young Italian artist who focuses his style on the research of sound. "Imperfection" in fact, is an EP that moves away from the sounds of club-music and explores more peculiar tunes without looking too assiduously for the 4/4 beat.
The first track "Berlin Parks" is a 4.33 min experimental journey in a gentle and minimal rhythm, determined and strongly hypnotic, which captures and cradles the listener.
"D16", the second track, presents substantially higher rhythms and is a mixture of acid with old school sounds alternating between them. The result is a drum'n'bass style track in a pure techno environment.
"It's A Game" follows the path of the two previous tracks. Experimental sounds and shifting rhythms, techno influences and industrial hints determined by captivating and rumbling synths.
"Like A Rat" is the more club-oriented track on the release. Penetrating old-fashioned acid techno and beat in an alive and powerful UK style.
"ISFN", the fifth and last track of "Imperfection" EP, features the collaboration of Matteo Appolloni and is a path of minimal sounds and IDM influences loaded with ascending voltage and a few industrial undertones. [ Words by Valerio Polani ]
