6/10 Clinton Staff review, 13 February 2014

Italian electronic artist Daniele Mana releases this is debut smattering on a white vinyl LP with no sleeve or credits, a plastic dust cover the only thing separating the vinyl from the cold, hard ground.

The opening ‘My Birthday’ sounds like a cat clawing at a synth and doesn’t bode well but ‘Sweet Sixteen‘ opens with some grainy dusty synth notes and ups the ante considerably. Its a slo-mo Fly Lo like jam with some sweet vocal hisses reminding me of the J Dilla influenced post-hop of some of the Stones Throw types.  A lot of the album deals in squelshy discordant acidy techno not unlike the Skam label’s 90’s hey day. There is a subtlety and softness at work so the album is more suited to home listening than in some dark vibrant Berlin nightspot.  A vibrant work but I’m hard pressed to pick out a killer track. Sometimes the laptop wizardry of the Kid 606 old guard are brought to mind, at other times there is a Germanic hauntological drift at play.

The occasional synth sweeps sits hard and true but the album is a little too obscurist to really lure in the casual listener.
