Paolo Lucchi – Pastels EP
We had Paolo Lucchi with Alexis Raphael on Sunday with London via Milan. Here he is on his own with his Pastels EP. Minimal techno available as a free download.
The EP starts with Blue. This is a relaxed, unhurried track, with just a touch of melancholic warmth among the minimal sounds. Mist is a bit less warm in tone, with a vaguely edgy air. Pastels never quite comes into focus and sounds incomplete. White veers around between minimal and a slightly dubbed ambient techno. IDM even. One of those late night paranoia inducing tracks. And the best thing here. Finally, there’s a Bakked rework of Pastels. This takes the unfocused original to the minimal ambient place that it should have been from the start.
