[51bts078] Tonylight: Lumanoide

Share

09.05.2024 || 8bit, Chiptune, Acid, Techno

Tonylight, a genuine master of the 8bit music scene, takes the advantage of his long-standing experience in the sound machines’ design and production within LEP (“Laboratorio Elettronico Popolare”), to constantly change his set-up to shape new tracks, always maintaining a characteristic pure analogue and instinctive approach in all his compositions.
Lumanoide” sounds raw, acid and old-school, with unsettling dynamics and motorik rhythms. This latest album by Tonylight can be viewed as a fully-matured version of the previously produced albums that were almost entirely based on the use of Gameboy and Nanoloop. The creative verve is the same, but the sounds are full-bodied, deep, intense, and obtained by exploiting a recently produced Danish groove-box to its limits. Lumanoide is inspired by the unforgettable nights in the clubs of the 90s, and all tracks are 120 bpm, in homage to the Marco Dionigi’s “slow motion” djsets.
The name of the album comes from “Lumanoise”, one of the synths produced by LEP, of which Tonylight is one of the founders.

[51bts077] Andy Morello: Electrical Emotions

Share

21.03.2024 || Modular, Techno

Electrical Emotions” is Andy Morello‘s first modular-techno EP. Once again, the eclectic performer and producer amazes us with a new studio work which follows his first two EPs, “Collateral Fluxus of Imaginary Thoughts” (2020) and “Tapes” (2022), both published by 51Beats.
Electrical Emotions is hypnotic, bassy, and alienating. It will bring you to distant world performing frenetic dances. Philipp Dick wondered whether Androids were dreaming about electric sheep… well, we don’t know, but surely humans will dream about obscure clubs and strobe lights while listening to Electrical Emotions! Electrical Emotions connect “electricity” with “emotions”, being the latest quite a special kind of electrical signals, and this is what makes us human indeed…
“Electrica” and “Ghost” are produced by Andy Morello, with the EP closing with “Electrica”’s re-edited, remixed and produced by Duscio, formerly appeared jointly with Andy within their former album “Electricults” (2021, 51Beats).

[51bts076] Cirro: Monstera

Share

25.01.2024 || Electronic, Synthwave, Pop, Downtempo

“Monstera” is the first official release by Cirro, aka Fabrizio Baioni. Mysterious voices, rough instruments, and intricate electronics all together create an atmosphere being simultaneously vibrant and hypnotic. “Monstera” is an intimate and deep sonic travel that brings you back to ancient times. Try to imagine yourself into the most remote age, feeling the energy and vibes of that times, but making use of the most modern artificial intelligence filter, which is on the other hand already trapped by present routines… Then you’ll feel how “Monstera” is a lament, a lament that gradually develops through deeper and precious hopes towards a brighter future, all in the name of an outermost sound deflagration…

Recorded, played and mixed in Macerata by Cirro aka Fabrizio Baioni.

Luta” is the first official single by Cirro, who just joined the 51Beats family. It will be out on Soundcloud and on Bandcamp, where you will also get the exclusive bonus track “Dark Sea“. These music pills anticipate the forthcoming album “Monstera”, out in January 2024.

“Luta” is a sparkling gem, a lapillus creating an imaginary universe where people invent a unique way to comunicate through melodies, sounds, and litanies.

“Dark Sea” brings us to the most distant and deepest see, where all around us disappear, leaving us breatless and surrounded by eternal atmospheres.

Cirro brings a fresh wave of simultaneously energetic and chilly sounds to jump into the new year by crossing genres and breaking boundaries. A hope for a brighter future, with music always being the wind at our back.
