Alessandro Cortini is my new mini-obsession. I can’t really describe this sound- it’s sort of electroclash but with some very vintage sounding beats. But what I love is that you can hear some real emotion come through all the electric sounds.
For his two premiere albums Blue and Red, Cortini has carved out a new creative direction by using solely a Buchla analog synthesizer, an obsolete instrument from the 70’s, to produce all of the sounds in the recording process. Soon to be supporting Ladytron. Check out here.
