Inverted Audio are offering a CD version of The Aquaplano Sessions, a reissue of Dozzy’s collaboration with fellow Italian Neul, released by John Elliot’s consistently intriguing Spectrum Spools imprint.
The exploration of the relationship between time and sound is the centre of the eight track work. Each piece is built on loops that float in and out of sync and perception. Tribal beats are played against warm pads and slow drones. The outcome is something like Steve Reich minimalism with dub techno production.
Both Dozzy and Neul have built reputations from producing music that doesn’t fit into categories, whether electronic or otherwise. The reissued collaboration is a fascinating reminder of a period where their meeting of minds and skills created a deeply unique set of songs that stands out as much now as it did on its initial release. The sessions here may seem a little rough and exploratory when compared to their most recent work, but they are an interesting curiosity in the history of the artists and the unique area of electronic music they inhabit.
