This work of remixes leaves nothing behind and confirms the mission that electronic music has always had: to play with the present and move towards the unknown, beyond entertainment. We don't know where to record his latest work, since he is capable of navigating between various genres with ease and mastery. We could say that his retro-futuristic electronic court is the most honest and eclectic to date. This latest work, as narrative as it is cinematographic, invites us to enjoy it both at home and on the dance floor.


The result is a work of remixes that is as experimental as it is intense and addictive, which takes hold of itself like a sweet poison, while progressively transporting us, as few producers with any degree of fluency are willing to do. We don't know what the future holds, but we do know that this album is testimony to a turbulent and uncertain present, which will remain in our memory forever. Because of records like this, we can keep fighting for a better future.


At such a complex and chaotic time, in the midst of a pandemic, this work becomes as wonderful a place as it is necessary.
