About this item
If you organise your collection by location (and frankly, who doesn't), then you're gonna have to allocate some extra room for Italy, as Naples stable Periodica swing through with their second essential release in as many weeks. This time round it's Modula doing the damage, keeping it bubbling for the cosmic crowd with a couple of rippers! On the A-side, "Argonauta (I've Been So Lonely)" sees the producer fire up the squelching synth, electronic flute and simple drum machine to turn out a masterpiece in slow and sleazy drug-funk, topped off by a deadpan vocal in classic Saada / Pat / Rexy style. Flip it and things go totally cosmic via "Descending The Abyss", a cinematic fusion of drum box snap, sequencer slap, guitar thrash and synthetic smash which should have you dancing forward, backwards and inside out. Could this be the best Periodica to date?
Patrick says: By this stage I'm pretty sure the guys at Periodica are tapped into my subconscious - this latest winner combines all the sounds and delicacies bouncing round my skull into two flawless jams. E-funk and cosmic wobble - Forza Napoli!
