Italian dark electronics aficionados Alessandro Adriani and Cosimo Damiano come together for a debut collaborative EP on Pinkman. Belonging to different generations but both deeply influenced on one side by “the Sound of Rome”, with pioneers like Gabriele Rizzo, Leo Anibaldi and Lory D, and on the other side by the raw Dutch electro legacy of Bunker Records, the two strike a golden middle of their styles with a clanging, raw and packed to the brim with coarseness electro-techno hybrid.
Inspired by the cyber dystopia narratives, ‘Neurodreamers’ reflect on the hi-tech surveillance and the promise of AI which unfolds itself into the prospect of dehumanisation. Taking the listener through turmoil and anger, the brutish 4-tracker weave the elements of grubby baselines, coarse synths and erratic percussions with the brain-melting hints of acid and Alessandro Adriani’s own recorded vocals. A living warning to us all.
