After making his appearance on Vakum005 back in 2016, Sagats returns to the label with a solo EP. Cleverly combining vocals, acid and dirty electro rhythms, the Italian prodigy manages to convey his message through three able feet jumpers that share similar resources but each posses a different twist. "Blue Screen Of Death" gets us underway, a sprawling, acidic burner with fluttering pad and string presets, wiggling around a poised breakbeat and garnished with a r'n'b flavoured acapela. Flip side track, "Venice Marathon" sees Sagats pull out the nastiest and gnarliest sounds out of his machines. With a 303 on sawtooth setting and another synth providing some analogue squelches and swirls, all that's left is for a rigid electro beat to propel things forward. "Therapy" concludes proceedings with some space-age vibrations - darting leads, eerie textures and robotic grooves all combine to get the most out of any cybernetic b-boys left dancing in the corners.
Sterling stuff from this exquisite label. Limited to 200 copies and famously never repressing a thing, all previous Vakum's have sold out within a couple of weeks never to return again - so get these skates on if you want in. Mega.
