Garofano Rosso EP Soundtrack, Italo Disco Garofano Rosso It's 1980s Miami, where the cocaine fueled drug underworld is rising to power and police corruption is widespread. A stroll down the streets can mean that you're about to witness another violent crime in the sun bathed ominous streets of this popular Florida hotspot. Capturing the attitude and the aura around you is none other than the pitch perfect soundtrack design of Garofano Rosso's debut self titled EP. Italian producer Giorgio Luceri is behind the name, who is better known for his works over on Mathematics Recordings. However, in comparison to previous releases, a sort of ambient mark is approached with highlighted synths taking aim at the general house moves Luceri is known for. This all comes to fruition with the start of the EP, whereas the introductory song, Buio, starts us off. Imagine you're inserting an old VHS tape into your VCR, and you get that lovely, gritty tune as the productions company and the like are shown off. This is exactly the feeling that I got when Buio played; it's an outstanding throwback track that gives it all to completely set the mood. And, I will admit, that the mood was set in stone after this title track. The synth work doesn't stop there, emulating that 80s feel when synthwave was really making the rounds and tossing and turning dancefloors the world over. Add in some Italo Disco flair, and this EP has me sold. If there was any one song that really captured my attention entirely, it would be the groovy sound that emerged out of La vera storia di Steve Sauro Dionigi. Adding in the crisp sound of guitars to the overall electronic mix, this song really put me in an era that I could not be a part of. Walking away from this EP, I come out dressed with a lightly colored suit and pastel shirt right underneath, all wrapped up with a delectable mustache to sweeten the deal. I may have missed many glorious moments from the 80s, but if there is one thing that is for certain, Luceri has brought me back to that sweet but bloody period through the works of his music. Do pay attention to this new project; it's sure to improve and impress in years to come. 450

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
