Naples producer Alex Modigliani strikes again with this thoughtful album showing a wide range of styles and influences which are key to this talented young man's success. Musicology comes off the back of some huge summer gigs and the wonderful Abstract Dream EP which have taken Modigliani to the next level.
The techno house vibe runs through the album in its entirety with elements of chill out, electronica, drum and bass and breaks providing some amazing listening experiences.
Despite the album remaining at a high standard of audio quality throughout, the undoubted highlight has to be the grouped tracks Lost In The Ocean, Feel Deep Today and Cioccolata. This trio of soulful techno hits is one of the most original movements heard in any release in the 3rd Abstract back catalogue.
When split into 3 sections, it would difficult to argue that this masterpiece is not a great album. From the intense and intimidating opening tracks to the deep soul and funk aspects of the midpoint of the release and the drum and bass vibes of Rain With The Sun this varied collection of Italian dance tracks works well as an entity.
And if you do make it to the last track without being impressed, take a moment to relax with Alex Modigliani and Danny Martinelli who place the listener right in the centre of a jazz bar on the Amalfi Coast with the beautiful chilled Maybe Happy Ending.
