Launched in 2014 with some exclusive and very limited tape and CDR releases, Periodica was initially conceived as the catch-all sister platform of Naples-based mother ship Early Sounds, but there is no denying that the Italian imprint’s now standing on its own two feet.
Rich of a blazingly summer-flavoured back catalogue that spans from the solar-powered funk vibrations of The Mystic Jungle Tribe to the oddball submarine ambiences of Riccardo Schirò, via Piyojo’s playful drum-heavy jams, the Italian imprint once again drops anchor in luxuriant sonic territories with Pàscal‘s shimmering debut 7″ offering, ‘Nero Di Seppia‘.
Set in the lushest of secret cerulean creeks and dreamy shallows, the Geneva via Napoli-based producer – better known for his output as Pascal Viscardi – delivers a soothing two-faced dive into an infinite pool of breezy jazz, low-slung exotica and trans-Neptunian electronics.
Streaming in full over our channels today, the title-track cools down its smouldering slap-bass riffs and prismatic synths in an ornamental lake of organic sounds; melding the balmy, slow-cascading flow of zen garden waterfalls with wind chimes and enthralling bird calls. Give in to the power of Ra and let its warm beams soak up the winter blues smoothly. Funky osmosis.
Nero Di Seppia is released via Periodica on 3rd April, pre-order a copy from Juno.
