Big Hands - Ossario EP

Blank Mind

Regular price
Big moves from Big Hands, coming with this killer set of deep sound percolations and rhythm-driven trax for Blank Mind -

What a great disc - this one is fully pressurized with low frequency, and filled to the brim with subtle detail in the higher freqs, properly fine tuned for a surrealistic reconfiguration of the synapses.
All bass-heads and depth-chargers, take note.
Also be warned about the GRAFT gear coming later this year....
Keep eyes & ears peeled.

Check the scope from the label, it perfectly describes what kind of work we're dealing with here:

"The Ossario EP presents four serpentine and labyrinthine techno tracks produced between 2019-20 by Andrea Bonalumi, also known as Big Hands. The title is a homage to San Bernardino alle Ossa in Bonalumi’s hometown of Milan, and personifies the ethereal and opaque atmosphere of his ouevre.

Stylistically ‘Girde Maye/Astere’ embodies the interrelation between his Milanese roots and adopted home of London. Recorded one summer evening in Bow, it includes an original vocal by a Turkish immigrant, spoken in Italian - a paean to an unrealised, borderless world. This is followed by the pendulous, mutating bell tones of ’Modulo’, a fragmented and abstract epic of sublime beauty that defies easy categorisation.

On ‘Oscillation’ the producer explores polyrhythms, which also functions as a tool for DJs to transition between tempos. The undulating groove of ’Cariatide’ rounds out the EP, a statement from a talented producer who deftly crafts a soundworld which is at once contemporary and historical."

Wicked disc, don't sleep on this one.
