Rave Oscillations / Vortex Stasi
Following a killer debut on Optimo Trax Michele Mininni debuts on R&S with the heavy hitting psych detonation of ‘Rave Oscillations’
Hailing from Southern Italy, Mininni’s influences run to kraut, post rock, new wave and electronic amongst others, a long time DJ he manages to condense his influences into beguiling productions that come as a welcome breath of originality.
Taking a heavy dose of inspiration from seminal kraut groovers Silver Apples, ‘Rave Oscillations’ builds from the hypnotic motorik groove and off kilter bass into a pulsing peak time anthem.
On the flip, ‘Vortex Stasi’ takes things into a more psychedelic direction – dubbed out piano, jittery rhythms and spiralling swathes of guitar blossom into a truly tripped out, squalling, breakneck concoction.
Mininni’s kaleidoscopic musical vision is a truly unique proposition, a myriad of different styles and genres deformed under his oblique lens to create sun-drenched space music.
