"Reverb-dipped audio dreamscapes a la Basic Channel, deep and fragile like Loscil and Tim Hecker’s fleeting structures." (Inverted Audio)
"Hornets/Footprints" is a brand new tape effort by MIXED-UP founder Danilo Betti, taking a wide turn from his April Clocks debut on late 2014.
Initially composed on studio as sketches using various hardware and guitar, recordings were then rearranged and filtered trough Max/Ableton Live. From the ever evolving dub techno of Deepchord's Echospace project and the widescreen droning ambience of Loscil & Stars Of The Lid both side of the cassette shown a more pastoral and romantic mood, from the floating kick drum of "Hornets (Dub)" to the stretched delays of an acoustic guitar on the b-side "We Leave Footprints Everywhere".
A brief but personal and breathtaking statement from the Rimini based label head which required all your attention.
