Ahead of him releasing a full-length album on MOS in 2016, key label artist Marco Antonio Spaventi is teasing us with a three-track Prelude EP. Spaventi hails from Italy, but is based in Amsterdam, and is someone who deals in misty, Chicago referencing house sounds that are loaded up with a real sense of analog jack. As well as on MOS he releases on Slow Motion, Most Excellent NY, and Pizzico Records, and in summer 2015 he put out a leftfield electro, Italo, soundtrack, and disco full length, Viaggi, that showed he has great range in the studio. Here, though, he has his focus on the dance floor. “Missing Sunlight” is rueful and tender, deep and absorbing with soft drums and molten synths soothing mind, body and soul. “Falla!” is again perfectly smooth and serene, tunneling deep into the universe on a rolling drum line and with gurgling machines bubbling away in the foreground. Finally, “Balla!” ups the ante and is more driven, with acid lines freewheeling up and down as firmly planted kicks power the whole thing along. Full fat but still sprinkled with cosmic dust, it is a track that makes the wait for the album that bit more tantalizing.
