As the autumn draws in, Komisch calls again on Italian poducer P.God for another atmospheric release and fans of Paulo Dioguardi's 'Neptune IV' record back in 2011 won't be disappointed. Lead track 'Winter Solstice' achieves the rare feat of blending atmospherics with functionality, as a dark, prowling groove builds up, its pummelling, primal drums, dry hats and fatty bass providing the backing for an eerie synth sequence that swirls through the arrangement. 'Ecliptic' is more esoteric, with Dioguardi conjuring up dreamy pads that ride a hypnotic, tripped out groove, but the Italian artist's slick arranging and subtle percussive ticks ensure that things don't get too deep. Finally, there's 'Module 1', which highlights a different side to P.God. Gone are the synths, replaced by stomping drums, doubled up claps and sleek metallic snares that are full of the malicious intent of an assassion's blade. Don't miss the latest release from Italy's prince of dark techno.
