Soma‘s favourite Italian Roberto Clementi makes a welcome return with a solid 3 track EP in ‘Hardclass‘. The prolific Clementi has been busy of late with some excellent productions and this EP shows quite a different side of his tracks as he brings a heavier sound but yet still remains true to his deep roots.
Title track Hardclass is a perfect example of Clementi‘s ability to merge his tougher drum work with dream like synths and rattling sequences. Venice Portrait provides a more darker edge with filtered, grungey bass lines and subtly delayed drums and percussive elements that bring out the groove. The EP closes out with Thousands with its anthemic qualities, Roberto makes use of twisted sequences and haunting pads to great effect.
Another action packed release from Clementi who only continues to develop his unique sound.
