Ben Harris Heartbreaking and menacing. The most obvious and relatable comparisons I can make is to the output of Vatican Shadow and Force Publique Congo. That being said the negativity present on these four tracks feels less an exercise in cerebral extremity and more of a heartfelt response to the pitiful and shameful situation faced by refugees in today's geopolitical climate. On a more positive note, I will say anybody who adores the records released by Northern Electronics will certainly love this! Favorite track: Gommone.

about

Starting from the assumption that polyrhythmic music is a political statement, Wang inc. developed this 12” focusing on the stories of the past years tacking place in the central Mediterranean Sea. Stories of hope and despair, often tragic by the will of powerful and egoistic people.
Each track describes a fase of the crossing of the Sicilian channel: Fuga is the escape from the Libyan prisons, Gommone is the crossing on an inflatable raft that often finds a tragic epilogue, Approdo is the battle between humanitarian aids and governments to find a place of safe, Abbraccio is the tragic history of mother and son found at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea still hugging each other.
It’s harsh techno, slow, with vivid images, lot’s of tension and bleak atmospheres. All titles are in Italian because this story is part of the history of Italy.
