"Valerio Cosi may be young at only 22, but his talent is undeniable. He may be mostly known for his exquisite saxophone playing, but this Italian wunderkind doesn't stop there. Cosi composes strings of magic using all sorts of instrumentation and production tricks. Heavy Electronic Pacific Rock marks the first CD release in Cosi's ever-expanding discography, and he saved the best for this, his most widely-available release to date. Heavy Electronic Pacific Rock is a monster. Clocking in at nearly an hour in length, this Kraut-infused ride takes Cosi's modus operandi of juxtaposing multitudes of ideas that generally seem at odds and pushes it to its outer limits. Using techniques and ideas often found in contemporary free-jazz, but blurring them and whitewashing them with buckets of noise and Eastern-inspired rhythms, it is clear Valerio is on a mission. His music is the spaced-out reincarnations of the ghosts of giants. It is an arsenal of unique sonic phrasings built to bend your mind. This is Valerio Cosi at his peak as a performer, young as he is. Heavy Electronic Pacific Rock is his finest hour, his opus."
