Simone Venanzi – Silk [Sonora Ltd]
Simone Venanzi returns to Sonora Records, this time alongside label-head Lorenzo Dada on the imprint’s first vinyl pressing published under Sonora Ltd wax-only series. Titled “Silk”, the three-tracker evokes deep minimal house-infused soundscapes perfect for laid-back afternoon sessions and vivid daydreaming. Founded almost a decade ago, the imprint constantly delivers electronic music to the people in both digital and vinyl formats, collaborating with established artists and rising talents from all over the world.
With releases on Electronic Division, Kleos, Cubic Ball, Low Blow, Empire Music and his own Istinto Records, Simone Venanzi has been dedicated to music-making and mixing for quite some time now. Exploring various nuances of house and techno music throughout time, he definitely has shown his mature side lately, with his productions becoming more and more immersive, engaging and organic. In order to set the mood for a perfect combination on this record, Lorenzo Dada joins in with an immersive remix, showcasing his amazing abilities as a pianist and composer.
On Side A we first find the title track “Silk” slowly introducing us to a dreamy and steady-paced journey flavoured with prominent basslines, clear-cut percussive elements and intricate background textures. The spacious breakdowns create several tension-building moments while keeping the atmosphere attached to a warm frequency. “Satin” on the other hand switches gears, going for a more uplifting stripped-down sound where the additional vocal cuts create a hypnotic dimension, perfect for the dancefloor. Side B is reserved for the introspective reinterpretation of “Satin” by Lorenzo Dada, who adds a subtle progressive touch to the original through his ever-evolving psychedelic synth harmonics that leave enough room for the other layers to dive deep into a soothing diorama. Another great addition to the record bag!
