Berlin-based, Italian-born sound artist Andrea Taeggi introduces his debut release on Hands in the Dark records with ‘Nattdett’, an album showcasing six mesmerizing and rhythmically intricate electronic compositions. Drawing inspiration from previous works such as ‘Mama Matrix Most Mysterious’ (2015), ‘Batch 0006’ (2017), and ‘Zimní Král’ (2018), Taeggi delves further into his exploration of cyclical patterns and tension-filled compositions within his creative process.

The album’s tracks focus on unsettling atmospheres, unusual rhythms and percussive tones, using a vast array of rare equipment, including the analog computer from the Willem-Twee synthesis studio in the Netherlands, initially employed for flight simulation in the Cold War-era. ‘Nattdett’ eloquently showcases Taeggi’s talent in transmuting the essence of vintage machinery into a compelling primal language, offering an immersive and mind-expanding listening journey.
