Rino Cerrone, the indomitable figurehead of Naples fertile techno scene, has a formidable reputation as one of the most consistent and prolific producers around.
Man on Moon is Cerrones seventh release for his own Unrilis imprint and its the sort of belligerently driving affair that has cemented his lynchpin status in worldwide techno.
Fusing guttural bottom-end and clinically executed percussion together is what Cerrone does best and thats evident on Man on Moon but its his steadfast approach to seemingly infinite tension building that is most apparent. From the distorted builds of the first half to the fever-pitch mechanics of the main drop Man on Moon is a brutally effective piece.
With track two, Mihalis Safras lends his talents to a rework of the title cut and the result is a creeping, fluid and machine-like slice of modern techno which sees the Greek producer rein in the originals violent soundscape just the right amount.
Finally, Cerrone delivers Basic Rude, an out-and-out festival barnstormer that unapologetically aims itself squarely at the floor with a vast arsenal of builds, drops and percussive flourishes.
Rino Cerrones Man on Moon is released mid-August on his Unrilis imprint.
