2023, 12″ EP, Delsin.
Delsin’s Mantis series continues to dive into hidden corners of techno abstraction with this outstanding display from Italian producer Katatonic Silentio. Often found releasing albums on Ilian Tape, her approach to glitchy, exquisitely sculpted electronics translates perfectly to the immersive, dubby mode of the label, resulting in four elegant and original pieces that strike a balance between fragmentation and hypnotism. Whether it’s the tense patience of ‘To’ or the loaded bass pressure of ‘Hide’ that draws you in, this is a record which will yield repeated discoveries whether you approach it as a passive listener or a curious selector. – Juno
