Luigi Madonna’s record label, Contempo presents a high-energy techno release by Manuel Di Martino that fuses raw sound design with immersive atmospherics.
Manuel Di Martino is an Italian artist currently living in Berlin where he plays regularly at prestigious clubs such as Tresor. He is also an accomplished producer known for his tracks on respected techno record labels such as Coyu’s Suara, Marco Faraone’s UNCAGE, Ricardo Garduno’s Illegal Alien and Evod Music. He also runs his own imprints, Parallel 41, Persistence and Ribbon, which have been regular outlets for his music.
“Citylife” opens the release with its fast-paced tribal percussion and deep synth stabs that layer with atmospheric vocal tones. “I Spent My Days” has hypnotic, dubby pads and sensual vocal tones fused with high-velocity rhythms and trippy vocals. “G1.0” is a jackin’ track with explosive percussion vocal stabs and thrashing hi-hats. “See Ya In PV” closes out the release with laser-focused synths that swell with intensity as they unfold over a driving kick drum and punishing clap rhythms.
