About this item
How about this for a dream team collaboration? The Hacker and Alessandro Adriani bringing the mechanical funk, razor sharp wave and vital electro on this killer Mannequin Records 12".
What began as a B2B DJ set between two like-minded, seasoned veterans organically developed into a full force enthralling studio project and live set. Amato & Adriani is the new found project by Michel Amato, more commonly known as influential artist The Hacker, and producer and Mannequin Records label head honcho Alessandro Adriani. In other words two mechanical titans, throwing down together in jacked up mack mode. "Falling Inside" opens the set with a rugged electro groove, driven into your brainspace by a punishing bassline while spectral fx and squalls of feedback whip through the speakers. Next up "The Language Of Numbers" is electro-squared, taking the best bits of Detroit and Den Hague then pushing the voltage off the scale. On the B1 the duo are joined by another legend, namely Stephen Mallinder of Cabaret Voltaire, who offers a typically moody vocal over the ripped electronics of "Liar". Finally "Power & Persuasion" pulls back on the throttle a little, switching the mood from corrosive electro to tensile techno.
Patrick says: If you're a fan of electro, techno, industrial or dressing up as a DIY robot, you're gonna have a serious hard drive for this one... The Hacker, Alessandro Adriani and Stephen Mallinder, all on one record!
