Review: Since making his debut way back in 2002, Franco Cinelli has giddily hopped between labels, releasing well-regarded material on such imprints as Ilian Tape, Esperanza, Bass Culture, Raum and, most recently, Untold Stories. This first outing on Savor is notable for A-side "Liquid Funk", a 13-minute-plus workout that fixes subtle but spacey electronics to a killer, bassline-driven tech-house groove. There are subtle changes throughout, but for the most part it's a hugely hypnotic, locked-in experience. Elsewhere, the Argentine producer wanders closer to dreamy deep house territory on "Jack Bass", and joins the dots between New Jersey organs and stripped-back tech-house-funk on the decidedly wonky "D-Down".
Review: Argentinian label Savor returns with a nice various artists EP, showcasing some fine international talents. On the A side, we have Frenchman Le Loup deliver some bumped-out microhouse - engineered to perfection as always on "Lunar System" while Cape almost channels the same vibe as Mathew Jonson in the early noughties on the brilliant "Peek". On the flip, homeboy Franco Cinelli goes back to basics on the stripped-down "Blip Blup Noise" and even a bit of old-school Detroit style techno courtesy of legends Mike Carr & Robin Porter on "Fathernature" originally released on the latter's Immigrant Records back in 2002 - an oldie but a goodie!
