One of Italy’s finest techno exports Raffaele Attanasio releases his first EP in two years as he heads to SHDW & Obscure Shape’s Mutual Rytm for his ‘Quasar’ EP. We premiere ‘Axial Inclination’ a straight rolling techno groove that pays homage to his home of Naples, while showcasing his love for high-octane tools.
A product of Naples’ rich techno history, Italian DJ, producer and musician Raffaele Attanasio is an artist who represents the city’s iconic sound while drawing from influences across the Atlantic and the genre’s home of Detroit. Garnering plaudits from artists including Jeff Mills, Len Faki and Ben Sims, while releasing on Mills’ Axis alongside Non Series, Third Wave Black, and his own Letter From Jerusalem imprint.
Attanasio’s eclectic sound now delves into Italian techno of the early 2000s as he makes his label debut on Mutual Rytm – revealing his first EP in over two years and showcasing a new side to his sound with ‘Quasar’.
We premiere ‘Axial Inclination’ which see’s Attansio utilising jittering drums and slinking bass to keep the energy levels rolling. This showcases the Italians range as he throws his hands at tool driven techno, with mechanical and forward thinking intent.
