Tempelhof X Gigi Masin “Corner Song”

Mini at at

Here’s a lovely relaxed track from Tempelhof and Gigi Masin. It’s all minimal, a little drone and ambient sensibility. I’m too relaxed to write any more.

Blurb:

Two cult entities rejoin for today’s offering. Renowned minimalist wizard, Gigi Masin, and downtempo savants, Tempelhof, are elegant music-makers in their own right. But come June 10th, they cross swords for a joint outing entitled Tsuki — arriving via Cascine in North America and Hell Yeah Records elsewhere.

The former is a living sample bank for artists as far-flung as Bjork, Main Attraktionz and Nujabes, as well as playing a crucial role in Italy’s avant-garde thrust. Despite only releasing a handful of releases — one solo album (Frozen Dancers), a 12” single (Piano Piano) and another joint LP with Masin (Hoshi) — Tempelhof (Luciano Ermondi and Paolo Mazzacani) weigh in with considerable gravitas among those in the know. Together, they’re the perfect embodiment of career cryogenics — creatives whose artistry has received a rightful second lease of life via well-placed reissues.

Tsuki is a lesson in tasteful ambience, melding episodes of weightless wonderings with forays into percussive, softly-softly electronica. The project is pinned by the hip to each artists’ respective homelands of Venice and Mantua, making for a well-travelled and emotional jaunt into minimalism.

“Corner Song” is just that; almost otherworldly in nature, but atmospheric and deeply stirring. The perfect introduction to a project that’s bound to cause souls to salivate.
