Having made his debut on Drumcode in
January, the evergreen Italian producer is back with another four-track
EP to follow up the enormously well received ‘Prisma’ EP. Supported by
DJ’s from across the spectrum from Drumcode stalwarts like Alan
Fitzpatrick (Prisma) and Slam (Self Control) to house music legend Erick
Morillo (Back To Zero), Paganini’s reputation within techno circles is
well established with a recent discography that boasts Plus 8, Form and
Octopus Recordings alongside Drumcode. Eros sets the tone for the EP with a hypnotic fusion of mechanical
robot funk pitched to a shunting percussive groove that weaves its way
through subtle washes of faint vocal snippets. Egoism ups the intensity
with a cavernous big room workout that pairs heavyweight throbbing bass
and harmonic rhythms to create a deep, snaking sonic ride.
The Gypsy slips back down through the gears to work up a bumping
groove that combines exotic tribal rhythms with otherworldly effects and
wonky vocoder vocals. Finally, Wooden Toys continues the percussive
feel of the EP with a slamming tech cut built on a swaying groove and
punctuated with distinct rhythms and drawn out pads.
Tracklist: 01: Egotism 02: Eros 03: The Gypsy 04: Wooden Toys
