La Teoria Delle Stringhe Vol. 1
Last year Paulo Mosca made his vinyl debut on Where We Met as one half of Venetian duo Micro.Solchi. Here he makes his solo bow via a four-tracker on Slow Life rich in vintage influences. “Interstellar Interruption”, for example, sounds like the kind of far-sighted UK-US techno fusion that could have been featured on a Nexus 21 EP from 1990, while the organ-sporting techno-funk of “Cosmic Love” boasts bleeps that could have been taken wholesale from an early Warp 12″. The producer’s inherent funkiness is showcased further on brilliant opener “What’s Their Name?” – all squelchy bass, Derrick May style drums and jaunty sci-fi lead lines – while “Star Wars” wraps decidedly spacey pads, warped lead lines and dubby bass around a shuffling breakbeat rhythm.
