Genre/Influences: Deep-techno, dark-techno, ambient-techno.
Background/Info: This album is a collaboration between Tony Scott (Edit Select) and Antonio Ruscito. It also is the work between different generations. At one side you get an experienced Scottish producer and label owner (cf. “Edit Select”) and at the other side an upcoming Italian talent (cf. “Antonio Ruscito”).
Content: The common efforts between both protagonists take off in a rather ambient and even experimental way. The production is characterized by low, resonating sound vibrations, which have been accentuated when danceable rhythms join in.
The music evolves towards danceable vibes, pretty deep-techno minded, but still very dark. The atmospheres in the background are ultra dark revealing a fascination for ambient music.
+ + + : “Visitors / Projections” sounds futuristic. It makes me think of techno music from a future generation, but it mainly reveals the impressive production skills of both artists. I like this dark-techno format carried by low sound sculptures and deep kicks. The work has been accomplished by some bleeping sequences. The last part of the work is absolutely great and features multiple outstanding dance cuts.
– – – : In the long run, the music starts to repeat itself and even becomes a bit predictable. Despite of the numerous great cuts I feel like it’s missing a total apotheosis.
Conclusion: Edit Select & Antonio Ruscito have accomplished a modern technoid work, which is styled and based upon a magic sound production.
Best songs: “Projection 5”, “Projection 8”, “Projection 2”.
