Franco Cangelli – Embrace 12″ – Machining Dreams

Hakim Murphy’s gear-oriented Machining Dreams imprint branched out from his original work with this interesting signing. The depth and drive of Franco Cangelli’s title track handily demonstrates the qualities that have seen him releasing arbiters of underground quality like Sushitech, and Seventh Sign in addition to his own Mowar imprint. On the flip side he strips down the production to a more dry, drum-box powered Detroit-style, always inflecting the tracks with detail and hints of melody.

Releases like this have paved the way for Machining Dreams to feature artists like DJ Spider, Amir Alexander, and Chicago’s Steven Tang under his Obsolete Music Technology moniker.  Certainly a stamp-series joint worth checking out while it’s still possible to find a copy.
