"Italian DJ and producer Manuel Fogliata hasn't released a lot of records over the last ten years, but the few he has put out have always been worth tracking down. Perhaps best known for his work alongside Donato Dozzy in creating the much sought-after Aquaplano records at the tail end of the last decade, Nuel's solo outings have been just as consistent and just as impressive. Whether taking on metallic electro or syrupy, bass-heavy ambience, Nuel's attention to detail and his keen ear for a groove has made each release something to treasure. Nuel's only previous full-length, Trance Mutation, was a masterpiece of minimal repetition. It was possessed of a gossamer-light surface, all trippy rhythms and wonderfully playful melodies, but it was deep too. Like its predecessor, Hyperboreal was made with the minimum of fuss. Recorded using just one semi-modular synth - the boutique and sadly discontinued Ekdahl Polygamist - and a handful of pedals, the album came together in just a few days while Fogliata was staying with Giuseppe Tillieci (aka Neel and one-half of Voices From The Lake) at his apartment in Rome. The Polygamist's combination of modular flexibility with the aesthetic cohesion of a complete instrument was the inspirational spark which set the album in motion." (label info)
