[51bts043] edPorth: Static


Intelligent Dancefloor and melody, afro rhythmics and obsessive loops, acoustic jazz parenthesis and rare unnatural vocals to build soundless soundscapes. In ‘Static’, edPorth creates nine tracks that compose a balanced album, for succession and flux of atmospheres. With his third solo artist album, second on 51beats, edPorth is back to express completely itself while confirms – as centerpiece of his musical production – the research in loop and cyclical sound.  [Maracuja – maracuja@51beat.net]

edPorth is the solo-project by Patrizio Piastra, an italian electronic musician, member of the well-acclaimed band Youarehere. Music from edPorth blends ambient soundscapes, idm beats and distant dreamy vocals, always designing obsessive melodies and sounds that move between dance loops and electro-ambient backgrounds. His first album “Saying Vamos and Thinking Let’s go” has been released by Inglorius Ocean netlabel on January 2010. STATIC, published by 51beats in November 2013, follows  “Key Black” (51beats), a work that has been widely recognized internationally with a large number of enthusiastic reviews.




Rockerilla n.400 (Dec. 2013) “Qui dentro trovimo tutto il materiale innovativo in circolazione più l’immancabile tocco misterico di un musicista solitamente abituato ad immergersi in suoni emoziolnali…..”

WeAreTheINSIDERS “….paesaggi sonori sconfinati. Un album che definirei un flusso di atmosfere, di sentimenti sonori ed elettronici….”

Cyclic Defrost “…the biggest stylistic emphasis here is upon pared back minimalism and the subtle integration of live instrumentation and vocal elements into the gently rolling and predominantly synthetic backdrops.” “Thankfully, Piastra’s shift towards more rhythmically based territory hasn’t lessened the potent emotional impact of his arrangements at all.”

Sounds Behind the Corner “Ritmi che evolvono” “..piacevoli esperienze da vivere sul dancefloor o raffinati ascolti.. ” “….piacere dell’ascolto, con qualche buona traccia clubber che esula dalla facciata mainstream dell’elettronica technoide e poco più. “

Kathodik “…nove ipnotiche tracce che raccontano di un universo sonoro altalenante tra melodie ossessive, loop dance ed electro-ambient. Soniche suggestioni, intense ed affascinati che sorprendono e appagano chi le ascolta.”
