Luigi Madonna launches Debut Record Label with 3-Track ‘Contempo Vol.1’
Luigi Madonna is entering a new chapter in his ongoing evolution as an artist that celebrates artistry, progression and most importantly, the cardinal roots of Napoli’s hard-hitting strain of techno. Embarking on the launch of his debut label and event initiative, Contempo, Madonna shares the first in a series of opuses to introduce his revitalised sound profile – the 3-track “Contempo Vol. 1” is out today across all streaming platforms.
A fresh creative outlet for this newfound musical direction, Contempo serves to supply the underground community with a harder and faster strain of techno that hints at nineties revivalism, whilst breeding contemporary sound design elements. Translating to “with time/tempo”, Contempo references a change in pace for Luigi’s output, opting for 140 + bpm cuts that will no doubt satiate the modern audience’s craving for intense and uncompromising beats.
“CNTMP 1.02.”, radiates a more erratic ethos, with sharply detached percussive components navigating their way through euphoric vocal chops and distant sirens. Chaotic and focused in equal measures, the cut’s relentless drive to the finish is led by its militant semi-tonal changes which cloak us in hypnosis. Drawing the EP to an immaculate conclusion with a captivating finale, Luigi Madonna demonstrates his impressive production credentials as he embarks upon the ominous, early-hours cut “CNTMP 1.03.” Unravelling a hostile web of menacing underground soundscapes, frenetic kicks and glitchy sonic patterns, the Italian penetrates the imagination with mind-altering acid basslines, ravey synth stabs and exemplary use of crescendo and juxtaposition, to conclude a remarkable debut EP on Contempo Music.
