released June 20, 2016

Seething, thrilling, hypnotic dance music, in the mighty tradition of Carl Craig’s Bug In The Bass Bin. Two constantly shifting blends of Belfi’s multi-rhythmic snare-work with stately drones and shimmering electronica. Themes and traces continually loom and recede, rocking to a deep, pulsating bass drum, and tautened by a widescreen sense of drama (with Morricone in mind).

(‘Cera persa’, in Italian; ‘casa perdue’, in French: ‘lost-wax’ or ‘investment’ casting, by which a sculpture is duplicated.)

« Electro-acoustic experimenter Andrea Belfi (B/B/S, The Swifter) veers towards techno structures in Cera Persa for the Paris-based Latency label.

Too somnambulant for the ‘floor, best suited for home listening immersion, the piece is cleft in two parts and follows a crumb trail of softly struck drums into fizzing, stereoscopic gloom, eventually encountering shuffling jazz hits and strange, scrabbly electronics therein. No handrails. »
