The Italian producer Somne, whose real name is Federico Maccherone, presents his first release of 2017 -- a solo EP marries ethereal, wide-angle synthesis and intricate drum. Nods to classic IDM and ambient sit at the periphery of the recordings, although the main focus is on the propulsive, contemporary techno derivatives -- from warping, half-time opener "Divided Love" -- through to the exacting, peak-time drive of "Endgame". The original version of "Metropolis" conjures up a distinctly brooding sentiment -- a quintessential example of rolling, contemporary electronica, whilst the "Alternate Mix" offers a more direct, cathartic interpretation.
