Its been a whirlwind year so far for new SCI+TEC signing Fabio Florido. As one of the new wave of M_nus artists, he was chosen by Richie Hawtin to spin at some of the recent PLAYdifferently Mixer launch parties, including May’s live Boiler Room. Since then he’s squeezed in a quickfire tour of South America, completed an upcoming Ep for Pig&Dan’s ELEVATE imprint and put the finishing touches to his much anticipated SCI+TEC debut.
Fabio opens the release with Umeshu Drunkard, a heady concoction of lashing cymbles, twitching snare and marching bass. All topped with a dizzying melodic garnish. Intoxicating stuff from the Italian.
Title track Ascendent hits hard with its thumping kickdrum, sturdy groove and bubbling acid line. A mean, motoring track and, together with its predecessor, one that furthers Fabio’s rise to the top.
