Comment: Soisloscerdos is a prospering web-label being active in the belt of rhythm-induced and electronica-drenched music. However, those audible examples I have heard so far on the imprint are way too fidgety, delinquent and unorthodox to be pigeonholed as club dance, though. Moreover, the same could be said within the border of any issue either. From minimally shaped techno oscillations which now and then are intertwined with wobbly trance and bubbling tekno threads to a hirsute yet lofty high-pitched electro outlet. The music at least partly abandons the anonymity of the club dance by using it as a tool to magnify and boost the result. Besides it is clearly influenced by the end of the 70s and the 80s due to a strong impact of Italy Disco and spaced-out electro(nica). The last mentioned comparison is clearly unparalleled at Haute Tension. All in all, it can be concluded this handful of tracks is a cut above because of putting on a sprightly well-balanced show with peaky moments.

Comment: this couple of very extended compositions clocking in at a 38 minute is not a nascent one. Vice versa, it was released on an imprint called Chew-Z which does not exist anymore. Fortunately another domestic imprint called Grey Sparkle is still with its discography up there. Yet it was supported by another defunct label as Canebagnato Records either. More profoundly, it was issued 10 years ago but the music is in spite of it thoroughly evergreen. Why should it be otherwise, isn't? Although it does not involve catchy hooks in the terms of pop songs it can be considered a poppy instance within the experimental electronic music scene. Pietra 1 is not the kind of it because the artist is inclined to have experiments with electro-acoustic sounds yet at the end of the composition it is going to lose its austere and rigid facade remarkably. At the ending part those subtle droning waves are flowing over the crackling bits and incisive sounds conjured up with contact microphones. It is going to remind me of something being produced by Penguin Cafe Orchestra many decades ago. However, Pietra 2 introduces even the more acquainted associations due to slowed down drones, lengthy piano chords and poignant electronic effects and then as if coming from nowhere putting on a swarm of fantastically chirping cinematic droning which would without any obstacles be the epic finishing backbone to the maudlin motion pictures. In a nutshell, I applaud the effort of Christian Alati.
