    Newcomer label Substrato features Dorian Gray on its third release. Gray, AKA Moreno Mariotti, is an Italian-based artist whose music culls from a broad range of influences that rest somewhere between surrealism and sci-fi. This third installation is a canvas of obscure atmospheres and hypnagogic patterns, the textures of which play to the label’s orientation towards the acoustics that embody subterranean and submerged worlds.
    Gray’s EP creates a feeling of being within the presence of a constructive type of nature where organic and artificial sound coexist in harmony. A Winking Light In The Dark and The Access To A Parallel Plane Of Existence both make use of acquatic samples overlaid with a futurist atmosphere and straightforward beats. Extraordinary Day On The Exoplanet is perhaps the most overt iteration of the delicate balance that Gray strikes between modernist and shamanistic impulses: Gray’s original version is ambient and imbued with layered samples that stretch over the length of the track, where BUCK’s remix is more dance-oriented, incorporating structure, rhythm, and strokes of differently cut melodies into Gray’s ethereal soundscape.
    The slow rhythms and repetitive atmopsheres in 003 transport the listener to a new environment. Already able to boast a discography that includes Artefakt and Edit Select, Substrato has firmly established itself as a formidable force in dark, atmospheric techno, particularly with the pertinence of this most recent release.

about

Substrato Italy

The label points to the Earth, to its rocky crust and its biological contents, to the strata that have given rise to life, but also to its visionary aspect, the magnificence of magical and imaginary places.
The label is oriented to the acoustics of the “techno” ambience and is in continual search of the explorations that accompany the hypnotic journey towards subterranean and submerged worlds.
