Press Info:
SHDW & Obscure Shape welcome Alarico back to Mutual Rytm as the Italian delivers a medley of diverse techno cuts across his latest EP, ‘Boya’.

Arriving fresh from an impressive twelve months with releases via the likes of Token Records alongside his notable self-production only mixes, Italian DJ and producer Alarico continues to grow as a talent on the rise within techno. Combining nuances from across the genre to shape his own fast-paced and raw yet soulful sound, the Milanbased talent hasn’t slowed down since launching the alias in 2019. Having featured on the label’s VA ‘Federation Of Rythm I’ earlier this year, he now returns to SHDW and Obscure Shape’s blossoming Mutual Rytm imprint for his first EP on the label – delivering eight cuts across both digital and vinyl for ‘Boya’.

Kicking things off with the rugged and loopy ‘AE86’, Alarico quickly gets to work fusing driving grooves with slick vocal interjections, while title cut ‘Boya’ veers into slightly more raw and metallic territories guided by snappy claps and resounding kicks. ‘Killa Cut’ brings the funk on the B-side as soulful vocals ebb and glow amongst the mix, with ‘Lost In Time’ offering up pulsing bass beneath ethereal vocals, sweeping melodies and lively hats. The vinyl package is wrapped up by ‘The Ballad of Lisa’, with the infectious bleeping topline leading off-kilter clangs, slightly offsetting the track’s tight core groove.

With three bonus tracks on the digital package, the Italian continues to bring the heat with ‘God Bless Hip Hop’ providing yet more punchy, skipping rhythms accented by rich chords. ‘Cigarettes After Sex’ carries a more manic and chaotic arrangement yet still manages to hold the track together amongst murky flutters, before closing the show via ‘The Rush Hour’ to deliver warping, arpeggiated basslines and a constant battle of tension and release.
