P41 is a decade long solo production project from Italy’s Edoardo Pietrogrande. He has played everywhere from Rex Paris to Sonar, Space Ibiza to Dommune Tokyo and has a meticulously crafted sound that has seen him collaborate with the likes Donato Dozzy on labels such as Transmat and Get Physical. He is also a long standing sound engineer for the likes of Francesco Tristano and Octave One and recently remixed the latter’s revived Never on Sunday project.
The EP opens with the stylish ‘Lost’, a deep cut with a melodic bassline that moves up and down over linear drums and hits. Distant chords add a sense of mystery while the leads dance about the mix. Every sound is expertly designed and perfectly placed. There is more light and uplifting energy to ‘Found’. It has bright chords lighting up the dance floor with a celebratory feel over rooted, rolling drums. An array of synths flesh out the track and a spine-tinging breakdown resets before the groove kicks again.
Brotherly duo Octave One are techno innovators, singular live performers and Detroit titans who need no further introduction. Their remix flips ‘Lost’ into a stripped-back roller with a focus on storytelling synths that weave through the drums. It’s well crafted and grows in intensity until starry night skies unfold above the dance floor.
This is another timeless techno EP from P41.
