Album Review
Reviewed 2012-12-30
The debut full-length from Italian producer Dino Sabatini, one half of the forward-thinking project Modern Heads. On this release (which is also the inaugural 12” album on the Prologue label) Sabatini effortlessly plunges into the darkest depths of techno—his compositions are murky and expansive in nature, but also eerily evocative of classic dancefloor rhythms. Aside from its atmospheric hallmarks, this album is saturated with top-notch samples and instrumentation—Sabatini himself bills it as his “personal interpretation of the sounds of Africa” and his shadowy, but detailed facsimiles do not disappoint.

1. Slow-evolving and alien. Lonesome. 2. Upbeat and gyrating. *3. Cold, dark, futurist with beautiful harp samples. *4. Pantha du Prince fans rejoice. If you enjoyed any of the gentle polyrhythmic percussion and swollen bass of Black Noise, you’ll love this. 5. Macabre, thudding bass. 6. Sparse, broken drum rhythms with blurry vocal samples and an overall sense of foreboding. *7. Captivating interwoven drum rhythms with a keen spiritual atmosphere and strange sputtering electronics. 8. Choppy metallic techno with, scatterbrained electronic samples and a dull grinding. 9. Fruity buzzy beats. Airy and animated but sophisticated, almost like something off The Knife’s 2006 release Silent Shout. 10. Cold, icy techno. Washes of static and harsh electronic pings. A more dancey beat picks up at the 4:30 mark.
