Marco Passarani
6 Katun

By Andy Gain

Broken beats, electro, computer noise and sublime tones combine to form an album of some accomplishment from this Roman producer. 6 Katun is Marco's first album for his own Nature imprint and represents a collection of work from 1994 to 2000 and an end of a phase of work for both producer and label.

The album is crammed with inspiration, inventively bridging the gap between tough abstract beat structures and awe-inspiring melody. Of particular note are Phonok with its skittish electro rhythm and nifty edits, the jovial alien funk of Eaxade, and the frenzied breakbeat assault of Floid - a track derivative of early Aphex material.

All hail the new Roman Empire.
