Lory D – Strange Days Vol 1 (NMBRS13)

Lory D - Strange Days Vol 1 (NMBRS13)

Released May 23rd 2011 On 12″ & Digital

Lory D’s idiosyncratic take on Techno is an all-analogue assault on the senses, a soundtrack to the end of the world punctured by shards of acid and twisted metal soundscapes. A John Carpenter for the rave generation, so to speak.

The enigmatic Lory is something of a legend in his native city of Rome, where the former DMC Champion was responsible for introducing his compatriots the sounds of Techno, Acid and Hardcore with 5,000 strong raves featuring Ritchie Hawtin, Underground Resistance, Joey Beltram and LFO.

His label Sounds Never Seen was the soundtrack to these raves – an industrial yet sometimes beautiful vision of Techno where Drexciya, Frankie Bones and SPK jammed in the Roman sewers. Some of these moments were later compiled on Aphex Twin’s Rephlex label in 2003.

Lory D – Strange Days Vol 1 (NMBRS13)

1. Acidronix
2. Acid Prastix

After a long hiatus he returned to releasing music in 2008, and over the next two years appeared a trilogy of records on the Glaswegian Wireblock label (one of Numbers’ precursors). Once again, the man showed just how much of a vital force Techno can be.

Lory D – Strange Days Vol. 1 is the next link in the chain. Two tracks of mind bending Acid as only Lory can produce.
He may be from the old school but this is music from the future.

‘Strange Days Vol 1’ is out now on vinyl & digital
