Master Italo Brutalo (SXDNS091) is back on his very own Bungalo Disco with “Heartware”, a stunning 12-track synth extravaganza – originals only, by the way –, soon available on vinyl, cassette, and digital formats. An actual and definitive showcase of this true believer in the power of hardware samplers and analogue synthesizers, the album encompasses many of his most notable influences such as 80s Electro, Electronica, Disco, EBM, Techno, and of course, Italo Disco.
For those not familiar with his career, the first thing you need to know about Mr. Brutalo is that he is a complete artist when it comes to both DJing and producing. Watching one of his streams, for instance, is simply mesmerising not only because of his beautiful three-deck setup but also due to his killer turntablism skills – a forgotten format in the sync/rekordbox era. And amid his from here to eternity list of releases, some of his most noteworthy works appeared on vital labels such as Mozzarella Recordings, Days Of Being Wild, NEIN, Logical, Spa In Disco, Silhouette Music, Golden Soul, Nang, Emerald & Doreen, ESTHÉTIQUE, Espacio Cielo, and Bungalo Disco itself, just to name a few.
But let’s go back to “Heartware”, shall we? More specifically to this banger we were solicited to premiere: “Chemical Element” combines a pulsating Hi-NRG-infused bassline with minimalistic but frenzied Techno elements. The result is a peak-time beast devoted to wreaking havoc on the dance floor and teaching you basic Chemistry.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the artist.
