Having spent recent years establishing himself as one to follow in Italy’s techno underground, Electrorites (real name Luca Vollaro) steps up to his debut album with 10 years experience in the studio and a storm of industrial-tinged energy.
Structures follows up on an extensive number of releases on European labels such as AFU Limited, Sick Weird Rough, Naked Lunch or The-Zone Records. The 12 tracks, serially titled from 0 - 11, are a demonstration of determined restlessness, from the first bar to the very last beat. Hissing snares, distorted percussion and raw kicks shroud the entirety of the album in severe peak time energy.
Rough and evil, Structures takes the techno blueprint and drags it through dirt, its pounding 4x4 coherency only breaking rank to look up towards its target, adjust fire and dive right back into the melee. Synth lines twist to the mangled mechanical funk of Electrorites' machines (which include a Korg MS20, Virus, Moog, Creamware Pro 12 and an armada of distortions and digital weapons) while drones hover menacingly, exerting their dominance through clouds of noise.
Structures captures Electrorites’ current idea of techno, taking in influences acquired while on tour, away from his home base near Venice. The album is an anchor in time and a translation of Electrorites’ state of mind, one marked by energy, determination and anger, which translates to fire for the dance floor.
