Subculture caps off its anthem-packed 2017 run by welcoming Mr. Ottaviani back to its ranks. As with his ‘Crossing Lights’ production for the label back in 2015, the Italian’s gone way, way off his traditional reservation.
The result? Well ‘Legacy’ is every bit as surprising as it is spectacular!
When Giuseppe does different you know things don’t happen by halves. Thus if you like your trance with simply a seasoned dusting of techno, best look elsewhere. ‘Legacy’ is no simple studio gesture or symbolic production air-kiss to trance’s loco parentis – it’s a headfirst, cliff-edge plunge into black-hearted, European-paced techno.
The track’s deeply ominous hi-hat hiss, the murky subspace of its FX and equally heavy reverb conjure it an almost gothic feel. Alternating between three slight, but deviously effective sub-riffs, it’s metronomic percussion and hypnotically Pavlovian bass notes march you down some very shadowy corridors indeed.
