I have yet another solid Delsin release to share and write about – no surprise. Italian producer Massimiliano Vianello pumps out techno as grandiose as his name. “Knife Silhouette” is a seven minute banger and when you think it flatlines at the four minute mark, it just keeps pulsing. It’s throbbing, grimy and, as Delsin puts it, has “cosmic bursts of slithering synths.” If this is the first time you’ve heard of Hazylujah, this is sure to make quite the impression on your precious ears. In a way, it feels like a spiritual cousin to Trust’s “Shoom” from his debut, TRST. “Inform to Resist” has Vianello getting deeper in to the bassy trenches, rolling around all the synth stabs in mud and in a sense, the machines he’s using sound like they’re about to keel over. Vianello makes sure to squeeze every last drop from his synthesizers and drum machines and with that, I say this is worth every penny. Listen to “Knife Silhouette” in full below via the SoundCloud stream and a preview of “Inform to Resist” via the Buy Now button and see what you think of it. Cheers!

The Details

It's been a while since Delsin help launch the career of Italian producer Hazylujah, but now the two are back in action. Massimiliano Vianello debuted on this label back in 2011 and has since appeared on Media Fury, and here he comes correct with two more raw and jacking experimental house tracks.

The first, 'Knife Silhouette' is a bumping house affair with cosmic bursts of slithering synths roaming about above tough bass stabs, lo-fi percussion and distorted sine waves. Next up is the weird and wonderful arrangement that is 'Inform to Resist', a tense brew of jumping drums, bright synths, mangled machine nosies and frazzled textures. Muffled vocals are buried deep in the mix and the whole thing is a thoroughly abstract, ravey affair. Few tracks sound as abrasive and in your face as this, and for that reason they once again prove Hazylujah is in a class of his own.

Price $10.03
