The Organism! release schedule rolls on as unforgivingly as the techno grooves they serve up with a new EP from Italian Anthony Castaldo. Alongside his two original tracks, dubspeeka turns in a fantastic remix.
Castaldo was born in Naples and is a young and talented DJ and producer who has picked up props from some big names in the worlds of minimal and techno.
Up first, ‘Prospective’ is a bulky cut with firmly rooted kick drums, spritely hi hats and rolling, dubby chords. An incessant, endless female cry up top adds an air of trance inducing hypnosis to proceedings and some molten melodies add some essential colour late on.
Next comes ‘Bad World’, a more urgent and sharp edged cut with boom bottom ends, barrelling drums and crisp, cutting hi hats. There’s a menacing, groaning undercurrent to this one that makes it an even more dramatic track that will no doubt wholly command dancefloors once it has been deployed.
Elusive Bristol based producer dubspeeka, who has released on Oliver Huntemann’s Ideal Audio, Waveform and has remixed for Evolution, then steps up to tackle the same track. His version is a more cerebral, mindful and streamlined remix that burrows deep into the dead of night. Rippling chords, sweeping synths and a knife edge sense of tension really finish it off in style.
Once again here Organism! hits the techno nail right on the head with another scorching package.
