Enrico Sangiuliano is back today with another essential EP on his NINETOZERO label. It features a brand new track of his own ‘Glitch In Time’ and some innovative sounds from next generation talents Alex Lentini & STOMP BOXX, Antonio D’Africa & Sall and Mattia Saviolo. The Glitch In Time EP is released ahead of Enrico’s fifth all night long event, SOLO #5, at D-Edge in São Paulo on November 3rd. Listen to the EP here.
NINETOZERO is Enrico Sangiuliano’s transient label that will put out 10 chapters in all. Each one is a new development in sound from this techno titan as he looks to disrupt the notion of perpetual music. This collaborative Glitch In Time EP with Italian producers collective The Sentinels came about after regular conversations about music and production on WhatsApp, when Enrico at a certain point in time shared the concept of ‘Glitch In Time’. They decided that each of them could approach this chapter in their own signature style. The result is a strong collection of tracks, each providing an intriguing translation of the concept.
Sangiuliano’s own ‘Glitch In Time’ opens up and is a twitching techno roller with heavy drums thudding down low and warped synths and freaky vocals all bring the detail as the tension builds. Sweeping filters and pulsing synths ensure maximum impact for this futuristic track.
Alex Lentini and STOMP BOXX embraced a challenge in an unexplored field, expanding their knowledge of electronics. They offer two tracks on the digital EP, reflecting their background and analogue techno culture while unveiling a new artistic identity. ‘Arresto Momentum’ showcases distinctive raw and deep melody textures, blending rave elements, strobe lighting, raw techno drums, and saw-tooth synth buzz. Meanwhile, ‘Diagonal Matrix’ is a dramatically charged composition with broken drum beats, futuristic synths, and melancholic chords, guiding the audience into a new sonic world that reveals another side of their personality.
Antonio D’Africa & Sall step up with the heavy techno funk of ‘Skylark’, that seamlessly captivates atmospheric soundscapes, pulsating bass lines, dynamic percussion, transcendent synth melodies and intricate glitch effects. The track has been meticulously crafted to evoke a profound sense of fluidity and elevation that keeps the dance floor alive and energized.
Finally, Mattia Saviolo layers up scintillating chords full of hope and optimism next to thinking keys and rousing techno grooves on ‘Distant Memories’, which evoke a faded memory hidden in the depths of our minds, waiting to be rediscovered. Though elusive and fragile, these memories often bear the power to transport us back to moments that have shaped who we are today.
This is a superb EP on NINETOZERO that is full of fresh, meaningful techno tracks that ensure the world will take note.
