Following up his wonderfully melodic debut Amsel 001 release- Voyage Avec Yukazu, Rafaele Castiglione returns with the much-anticipated Nature of the Universe EP. Castiglione has worked alongside Berlin-based label Amselcom for the last two years, and during this time has established himself as perhaps their most prominent artist. The hugely talented producer is brimming full with ideas, sourcing inspiration from the likes of Nu, Stimming or Frivolous, to name just a few.
With this latest release Rafaele Castiglione has continued down his beguiling musical path, delivering deep and mysterious waves of peerless production that make the body sway. At heart- Nature of the Universe is a minimalist dub masterpiece, which gently takes your hand and guides you through blissful dancefloor meditation. Accompanying you through this is also US collaborator John LaMonica, whose marvellous vocal canon tricks and psychedelic lyrics help harmonise those mystical sounds.
Open City on the flipside possesses a more melancholic feel- perfectly blending clever arrangements and progressive, evolving melodies. The most fascinating element of this track is how it’s high reaching, ethereal synths give it a human face that evokes great emotion in the listener. The DkA remix remains somewhat faithful to the original, reducing the track to its essence, whilst pushing the boundaries ever outward. The final result is irresistible, spiritual music for the rituals of our time. We invite you to a session that promises to transform and elevate the most primal places in your brain.
