2012 has been another big year for Luigi with noteworthy appearances on Drumcode, MB Elektronics, AnalyticTrail and Octopus Recordings (collaborating with Sian) as well as Excentric Muzik. This is Luigi’s fourth outing with us following his massive “Through The Tunnel” EP, his two killer remixes of “Lumik - I Feel The Sound” for Rekluse and of course his 2011 Rekluse double A sider “Reset / Collusion”. For the uninitiated, the LM sound is a perfect blend of smooth stripped-down beats and rhythmic razor-sharp percussion. His rolling and energetic tracks meet somewhere between seriously hypnotic and downright heavy and are certainly an accurate pointer to where the sound of the modern underground Techno scene currently lies.
“In The Box” begins with “Magic Box” which rolls along with a constant flow of energy and an equal balance of swing-full groove and drive, complete with a chaotic break designed to cause maximum impact when the infectious loop finally returns. “City Liner” takes a more serious tone with an urgent feel to the pressing groove. The track relentlessly builds as it grows, peaking with what seems like a ball of fire. The siren led “La Guernica” marches along intensely with a machine-like grind, fuelled by a precise and intricate arrangement that is characteristic of Luigi’s extremely high standard of production. The original mixes are rounded off with the impressive “Gladiator” which showcases a different side to Luigi as he fuses together a hint of dub ambience with a dream-like melody to create a futuristic, dystopian vibe.
