Colossius bends music genres as he he sees fit, yet keeps his unmistakable touch full of silicon drum machines, clinically cut samples and old analog synths.
The set start out with a true hymn of the district where he come from: "Isol8" that mixes hip-hop's golden age with chicago juke and an unlikely Japanese rap. Then it's time for "Volverine" with a rolling funk groove and little commodore styled voices. Next up is "Viale Ready" with its skwee bass, hi hat in triplets and stabs it projects you directly into the UK rave 90's scene.
If the first part of the 'e.p. is characterized by areas of soft light, in the second part we dive into a tunnel to a whirl of dark, hypnotic bass. Next is "Kilosa", a new hybrid of juke and idm,
"Pyrotek" beats intimate flavor that brings us back to "Ether" experience, Colossius's first band. "Overnait" is where the minimum squeezed funk emerges, seasoned with atomic explosions! Closing is "Bltz Taylor," a cross between disco funk and alien obsessive mantra.
You saw him in league with Francesco Bigazzi, working on the abstract-idm band "Ether". Then the project / partnership with Digi g'alessio in full exploration with minimal funk and wonky beats. Now he arrives with his third solo EP on Fresh yO! which is sure to be an instant classic!
