Over two years ago was released Leonardo Martelli’s first EP on Antinote, ‘Menti Singole’ – an arresting four-tracker on which each cut bears the name of an imaginary male figure, with its own idiosyncrasies and distinct mood. Today the Italian producer returns with the second volume to the diptych, ‘Menti Singole Vol. 2’, this time gathering four numbers named after female names.
Menacing like JAWS’ main theme at first – a sinister bass strumming in a desperately shark-less ocean, ‘Il Registro’ offers what certainly counts as one of Leonardo Martelli’s most compelling slabs to date, combining the immersive impact of wistful pads with the galvanic crunch of a stealth breakbeat lilt. Straight up killer.
