VOLUME UNO, Stromboli‘s debut is out today. His tape in 2015 basically inaugurated our small label and to see him evolve, grow and deliver this incredible mind bending LP is a real treat.
“Beneath a saturated nebulous city landscape lies a mirror reflecting sharp, complex particles of light that disappear under the faintest drop of rain, literally silver dissolving into rust, mercury poisoning the train tracks of modern paranoia. Through the cracks, the chilled warmth of Stromboli’s Volume Uno rises, expanding on the notion of a solitary figure gasping for life in an industrial setting.”
We already told you that Stromboli is back with Volume Uno on Feb 10th. Listen to opening track Drag Phase via Inverted Audio.
Nice words: “… tape-saturated canvas of anxiogenic ambiences, shadow-clad synth psychedelia and grainy-textured layers, the Bologna-based artist takes you on for a borderline, hallucinogenic trip across semi-abstract cityscapes and barren post industrial terrains as seen through an insecure, paranoid-like perspective… Our pick – the album’s opener ‘Drag Phase‘, shows the most stripped-back facet of a black-hearted monolithic whole slowly disintegrating in thick carbonic fumes and pitch-dark sooty peels. Winter depression is almost gone. Almost.”
Excited to announce our first release of 2017, Stromboli‘s debut LP Volume Uno (MDR013) out February 10th.
After turning heads with his 2015 debut, Stromboli is back with his second offering of beautiful ambient propulsive landscapes, isolationist harsh noise and industrial psych. This is a heavy deep mind bending album, trust us! You will be hearing music very soon…
Finally what it’s all about, music. We are super proud to finally announce one of our first two releases: Stromboli‘s self-titled debut EP. We’ve been following this guy around for quite some time, he really does create his own magical world and we are very proud to be releasing his music out in the universe. One of our longtime favorite blogs 20jazzfunkgreats shared Waving, go have a listen.
