VERSION 012 Piezo - The Mandrake / Tinned
"The Version label returns with a duo of cuts from the Italian producer Piezo, that regular followers of this page will remember from last month's chart. Piezo has delivered two rather nonchalant club cuts, and by that I mean that they do their own thing with a confidence and a seeming pleasure in being so different, both from each other, and from the wider crowd. ‘The Mandrake’ is a wall of hard ball, slowed up soca, while ‘Tinned’ is more of a technical, thickened-up stomper."

"Having released on British mainstays Idle Hands and Swamp 81 sub-label, 81, amongst others, Milanese producer Luca ‘Piezo’ Mucci gets the call from Orson’s Version for a slick 12″ of broken beats and fierce sub low experiments.
With recent EPs from cats like Agrippa and Yak, Orson invites another young prospect to his bass-leaning label. Often working to broken techno formulas, Piezo chooses to slow components down to an almost dub-like aesthetic across his two productions, with sharp drum play and tricky timings on space creating just the kind of hostile bass pressure we’ve come to expect from the label."
