About this item
Domenico Cipriani aka Lucretio is somewhat of a stalwart in the Italian underground. Now based in Berlin, he is the founder of Machines State and co-founder of Restoration Records, Appointment, Parassela and Muscle Records. His first solo release on Memento (and only his second release to date this year), the “System Pressure EP.” opens with a re-rub of True Faith's 1991 rave classic, "Take Me Away". Beefing it up with more chunky drums, Lucretio keeps the killer vocal hook by Bridget Grace and the massive M1 line; molding it into a more terrace friendly 4/4 than the warehouse-breaks of the OG. Top stuff! "2PDAB1" follows suit, a direct and wobbly number composed of buzzing leads and sharp beats while "Love Don't Leave" concludes with rolling house beats, deep organ riffs and soaring strings, conjuring up a classy retrofit house slammer with lovely vocal inflections. Three crowd pleasing hits that'll keep the party rolling right through.... Ace.
“2bpad1” is a relentless ride of voltage controlled oscillators and hexadecimal quirks over hefty bare drums processed with a juicy analogue filter.
Finally “Love wont leave” bring back together House and Techno, melting their rhythm and blues essence into an absolute peak-time conjunction.
