Listen to Simbiosi's new EP on Cosmo Rhythmatic

April 2017

Following their Werkdiscs debut, the Italian duo offer up some “punishing vignettes” from this new release on Shapednoise's label

Andrea Bartolini & Manuel Masini aka Simbiosi have just released their new Indastria EP on D Carbone, Ascion and Shapednoise's Cosmo Rhythmatic imprint. The Italian pair made their debut back in 2015 with Elements (Werkdiscs/Ninja Tune), a 14 track box set in three parts featuring “Impari”, which also appeared that year on the playlist of Actress's DJ Kicks mix.

“A five-tracker that keeps up with their tradition of condensing slowed down hardcore techno bits into punishing vignettes,” is the way Cosmo Rhythmatic’s describe the release. “Like an acid percolator grinding neural matter into a new chemical ardour, or a malfunctioning cybernetic body on the verge of self-destructing on the dancefloor.”

Simbiosi will appear at a Cosmo Rhythmatic showcase on 21 April at London's Cafe Oto. The duo will play live with Franck Vigroux and Shapednoise in a performance dedicated to the late Mika Vainio.
