ARCHEO RECORDINGS

Archeo come through with another stunning relic dusted down from a forgotten corner of Italian music culture. Fulvio Maras, Alfredo Posillipo and Luca Proietti originally released Sfumature back in 1992, and it's quite the spectacle to behold. Minimal synths provide an underlay for the tense sustained pads and Maras' tumbling percussion on "Panico Iniziale", while nimble hand drums spiral around woozy brass and delicate chimes on "Trombe Di Alfredo". The mood gets seductively dreamy on "Amori" thanks in no small part to the double bass playing at its core. Highly accomplished, inquisitive and utterly satisfying music occupying its own unique space.

It's dedicated to the 1987 masterpiece played by the magic flute of Roberto Aglieri... called by himself... ""La solitudine accompagnata"", with the ORIGINAL 1987 LP + a BONUS LP, containing unreleased material, other versions and unreleased tracks. Archeo Recordings is a reissue record label that regenerates old, lost, obscure (and forgotten) rare gems of Italian music of the 70s and 80s, and not only. All outputs are licensed by the artists and the vintage labels; audio tracks are remastered in their original form; the sleeves and center labels are graphically recreated for today but all based on the original images.
Archeo would like to make the music available to a wider audience of collectors, DJs, music lovers of a forgotten time. All releases are hand-numbered limited edition vinyl. The first copies of each release are pressed in coloured vinyls.

Archeo are at it again, finding yet more hidden delights from Italy's bountiful musical past. Paolo Modugno's "Brise D'Automne" originally came out in 1988 and has since been highly coveted by record collectors fascinated with the new age delights contained within. Archeo have gone all out for this reissue, pressing the album on heavy vinyl to allow the music to really breathe, and adding a second disc with two tracks previously unavailable on vinyl. The curious fusion of organic and electronic elements with a daring approach to production makes for one of the most unique records you're likely to hear all year, and a welcome companion to your Finis Africae, Futuro Antico, Vangelis Katsoulis and Aeolus reissues.

STAFF COMMENTS

says: Archeo unearth a gorgeous new age gem from Italy's alternative past. This late 80s LP sees Signore Modugno marrying the organic and electronic into a heady blend of cosmic groove and fourth world calm.
