Donato Dozzy - Terzo Giorno

  • Share
  • Donato Dozzy first appeared on Stroboscopic Artefacts a few months ago, radically reworking a track from label boss Lucy in support of the latter's Churches Schools And Guns LP. Now, the Italian techno artist turns in Terzo Giorno, his first full Stroboscopic release. It's a record that, gloomy ambient introduction aside, is focused on relentlessly percussive techno tracks, all of which count among Dozzy's hardest-hitting dance floor efforts. "Il Canto Della Maga" sounds like wind chimes caught in a gale of ghastly cries, which are used again in "Il Canto Della Maga Part II." In that one they form a haunted backdrop for knotted-up drums and a fuzzy, droning lead. The title track follows in a similarly grinding style, with a taut, trebly riff moving in and out of focus just above the ruckus. I'd say Dozzy saves the best for last in "Sotto Ma Sotto," which is just a little less dense than the others. He allows his kick and toms to exert a resonant oomph down low while letting metallic monotone bleeps and swishing cymbals ride on top. Terzo Giorno is another strong release for Dozzy and for Stroboscopic Artefacts, and a reminder that both artist and label can always be counted on to bring the goods.
