After contributing with one track on “The Sweetest” series on Bosconi Extra Virgin, Nicola Altieri aka The Mechanical Man delivers here a rich eight tracker mini Lp on, where Casio sounds, Yamaha FM synths and Akai samplers are the main ingredients to give birth to his own compositions.
Sounding like a constipated and forced minimalistic funky music created in a small bedroom environment, warm, dirty and slowed down like from an old tape cassette but full bodied, the release begins with the intimate and dark mood of Sam and keeps going on with the mysterious vibes of March, the breakbeat rhythm of the Broken Gravity track and the smokey atmosphere of the downbeat sketch Slap.
More mechanical grooves on B side with the percussive mid tempo of Attrazioni and more ethereal, intergalactic broken beats with Amarcord, going back to obscurity with the soulful slow house jam of Gess, while the dubby The New Stein track close up the release with a touch of micro spacial spirituality. Mechanical soul for you ears.
Written & Produced by Nicola Altieri aka The Mechanical Man, B3 bass guitar and moog by Bob Vito.
