Various – Nonnative 02 (SEMANTICA NNN 02 – 2012)
|Release date is August 2012|
Iori Asano’s “Floating Matter” is the highlight on the second installment of Semantica’s Nonnative series. The title could not better express the powerful yet buoyant nature of the EP’s opening track – booming bass is complemented by floating sequences we know from Iori’s earlier output on Silent Season and Prologue. Follows Planet Rouge recording artist Alexey Volkov with “Run Out”, a heavy-chord interpretation of Detroit techno. The B-side is opened by Tom Dicicco, with the first moments of “Identity” signaling tensions of a crime scene before the track grows into a solid bouncer with alarming undertones. For the end deep chords are parading in mid-tempo “Vertice” by Sharin for a pompous late-night affair.
