Originally released on cassette in 2013, Redacted is a brooding and dystopian album. Like a machine kicked into life it chugs through atonal techno mechanics, washes with noise until radio crackled harmony presents itself. There’s elements of John Carpenter and Tarkovsky. I think we should just stay in the bunker and wait it out.

7/10 Laurie Staff review, 01 September 2016
On wax for the first time is this Not Waving thing, which seems to be the second thing released under Alessio Natalizia’s main solo project, just before his split with Pye Corner Audio that catapulted him to (underground electronic) stardom. He proudly popped the words ‘NO REPRESS’ on the original page for the cassette version back in 2013; he abandoned his principles around May 2014.
Redacted is a voyage through vintage synthetic music pulling from the music of the Pye Corner man, John Carpenter, Listening Center, you know, all them witches. Drum machines sourced from old TR-x0x rhythm boxes and 70s organs. Synths robbed from an 80s arcade museum. You know the score. But the modern touches come in the form of rearing feedback noises (‘Redacted 2’) and some ambient/dub techno influences from the likes of Echospace, complete with lush shimmering synth walls. There’s some prime stutter occurring on ‘Redacted 4’ that sounds like some sequences from the Drive OST (the Cliff Martinez bits, not Kavinsky et al!).
So yes, lots more nostalgic synth times that touches on more modern dance styles (‘Redacted 5’ is so nearly techno) but lies firmly in the low-key, textural bracket. Music for mechanical troglodytes.
