anymore. After all, he produces great tracks for
more than ten years now and also became an
acknowledged DJ in Italy during this time. However,
his career received an enormous boost since 2011
with his releases on Plus 8 and Drumcode, and now
reaches a new height with his Cocoon Recordings
debut. Compared to other releases, Paganini's
'Body To Body' EP draws a quite exceptional line.
The title track "Body To Body" is downright
breathing the late air of Electronic Body Music and
lives on elements which would have also fit into
"The House Of God" by DHS or into some of the
more minimal works of Front 242. Gloomy, but still
with hit potential - this is a rare mixture nowadays.
With "Fire In My Arms", Paganini is then slightly
moving to more contemporary areas, more loop-
based and more new school, but still a little gloomy
- a very unique blend and maybe representing the
typical "Paganini style" best!
"Polyester", the most House-like track, is the true
hit of this EP! Nice old-school snare rolls, driving
909 ride cymbals and sirens result in a kicking Acid
feeling that clearly distinguishes from the EBM mood
of the first track. Well done!
The digital version contains two bonus tracks: "Hot"
opens the doors to New School House as we know it
most likely from labels like Cecille: rolling beats,
hypnotic vocal scraps, all arranged in a very DJ-
friendly way. The very powerful Chicago bass line of
the second bonus track ("Paral-Lel") is fueling the
dancefloor and siren and synth attacks, combined
with compelling beats, result in peaktime music at
