If you’re looking for ‘charming’ and ‘downbeat’, look elsewhere. Spaventi Dazzurro, serves up a hefty onslaught of writhing acid techno not for the faint-hearted. The ‘Jerk Out’ version is a huge lumbering beast of mangled 303 squelches and thudding, rugged beats. And just as you start to catch your breath at the breakdown, it abruptly launches back into a raw and determined thump, the urgent arpeggio fit to burst.
The ‘Crunchy Club Mix’, by the sounds of its title, threatens something even more bombastic – in fact, it is a comparatively subdued take wielding compressed, jacking beats and floating synths.
It’s all about the in-your-face acid bombardment of the ‘Jerk Out’ mix. Handle with care.
