aperture records has always been about discovering new artists and bringing them to the forefront and Italy is well-renowned for its electronic music, both former and current. So, from one Italian duo (t.e.s.o.) to another… introducing Diaster.
Diaster aka Teo & G grew up in Treviso, listening to the most experimental music they could find in their small rural city near Venice.
With Matteo inspired by metal and musique concrete and Gianluca a researcher of old electronic/instrumental music, they decided to experiment with their various experiences in house, techno and drum n bass, inserting strata of industry and noise into their material. After ‘Enchantments’, a debut EP on DVNTT which deserves more recognition and an accomplished follow up on Subsist records; ‘Final Beginner’, aperture records brings you their latest contribution; ‘Clustered Non Symmetry’.
On first acquaintance, this 8 track album appears on the minimal spectrum; monolithic and indivisible. Tension builds slowly and influences, mostly of a similar vintage, come through. Arrhythmic incursions of stark and contorted electronics conjure up a hesitant, stealthily-undermined delineative framework.
