Domenico Crisci launches Summa Cum Laude
The Italian will kick-start his label with a solo The Violinist EP.
We have Ron Morelli to thank for introducing us to the utterly relentless sounds of Italian producer Domenico Crisci. Making his debut on Russian Torrent Versions – wedged between Beau Wanzer, Randomer and Shapednoise contributions – Crisci soon afterwards graduated to the main L.I.E.S. label with The Old Candelabra. It wasn’t until the following year that he made his debut on fellow Italian Marco Shuttle’s Eerie label with Ceremony, and it was then that Crisci’s belligerent sonic identity started to form into what it’s now recognised as being, with Nic Tuohey likening that record to the Midlands ferociousness of early Surgeon and Regis material.
Crisci’s sole release for 2016 so far made headlines for marking the onset of Jealous God’s final run of issues that we reported on back in July. The Italian now graces our news feed once again by revealing plans to launch his own label Latin-themed label called Summa Cum Laude which translates in English to ‘with highest honour’. The stern-faced producer, pictured above, will do so with a solo three-track 12″ called The Violinist, presenting yet another batch of nihilistic techno taking no prisoners and you can preview all three scores below.
Summa Cum Laude will release The Violinist by Domenico Crisci on October 21st.
