Charlie Ferrari | In Corpus, Sanguis Fluit
Alku | 3
Yet another superb little slice of fun from the ever-excellent Alku. Charlie Ferrari - fittingly described as "the James Bond of electronica" - creates minimal edits of pristine funk, no nonsense enjoyable fun and games of the tongue-firmly-in-cheek variety.
Four tracks of veering beats and enthusiastically programmed staccato patterns, marked by the occasional foray into asthmatic breakbeats [Cf. Aphex Twin's 'Ventolin' EPs], skip across seventeen relentless minutes with brief moments of respite courtesy of soothing fragments of piano. Ferrari is no Aphex clone, however, and 'In Corpus, Sanguis Fluit' marks a promising debut. Watch this space.
