Luxus Varta – Rosenhan Experiment
Emeric di Paolo, aka Luxus Varta, presents a four track EP of eclectic techno beats that satisfy the soul.
‘Wenn‘ is a striking blend of glittering, spiralling synths and rapid fire drum beats that form an intoxicating whole. Splendid stuff. Harder, angrier beats in the form of ‘Lizzy‘ accompanied by synth stabs and longer, drawn out tones. Hostile but exhilarating. ‘Losquato Feat. Paris The Black FU’ is a semi-comical, bitter rant (courtesy of The Black FU from the Detroit Grand Pubahs) on the crappiness of work and life in general and supported by a nice, tight electro background of sharp beats and sharper synths. The harsh jabbing intro to ‘Tempsun‘ is tempered by the melodic synths that follow and while remaining coarse, the sound never becomes discordant.
