New York's L'ESTASI DELL'ORO has become quite a phenomenon on the vinyl underground through his releases for Voodoo Down & his own Flaneur Audio imprint. The principles of what exactly makes his tracks pretty irresistible are brought to ultimate focus in ISCARIOTIC LIPS / REVERSE & REPAIR: multiple layers of noisy bits, shuffling time signatures around until you lose all orientation. 5 over 4 over 3 bend your mind in several directions all at once. Ultimately all you know is just a groove - and what a groove!
Then again, Crystal Boyd's cult-type, ultra slowed voice and R&R's numbing string loops leave no doubt: you're looking at the pleasures of apocalypse. For good reason L'ESTASI DELL'ORO is the first new artist to enter the Macro roster since Elektro Guzzi's legendary 2010 debut.
This 4 tracker was mixed by Stefan Goldmann who clearly knows how to sculpt intricate distortion mischief while maintaining a slamming drum kit. Enter an acapella of ISCARIOTIC LIPS and a hefty "beats only" SG edit of REVERSE & REPAIR and there's what 2014 can do for you.
