Antonio Barbetta doesn’t disappoint on his Out The Flat debut; overdriven, hardware-powered dancefloor cuts have long been his calling card, and the Italian is right at home on the London label. Picking up where Marcello Napoletano’s off-kilter house and the neck-snapping electro of Credit 00 left off, Barbetta assumes his Raw Ambassador alias to unleash a six-track assault.
Like the soundtrack to some forgotten John Carpenter movie, B1’s ‘Destroyed Dreams’ evokes a night drive through the sprawling dystopian cityscape. Blue lights flashing, steam rising from the manhole cover, this is machine funk at its most cinematic.
You Can’t Stop A Tornado is out March 20th on Out The Flat – pre-order here
