"In 2012, Giulio released 'Tarsia' on Nomadic Kids Republic to critical acclaim. It was a slow burner for us, but seemed to hook people with its clever entwining of encapsulating melody and delicately place field recordings. His follow-up 'Goccia', takes a rather thunderous step in the direction of a bang-on classic with one of the most complete, catchy, and ambitious albums I have heard in a long time. Far more straight-up rhythmic that his previous releases, 'Goccia' balances organic layers with some fantastic melodic synth hooks, flying straight through a maze of frequencies from drones, bleeps, bloops, background music, jingles, jangles, gut-punching subs, and whatever else he can. As a lover of all things warbled and grainy, it is so nice to hear an artist able to cross between music which is absolutely crystal clear, whilst also juxtaposing such tones with wonderfully filthy mids in places, quite free from the parameters ambient nerds stick to (namely, choosing one or the other... 'never cross the streams!'). By the time we get to the serene ending of the album ('the frequencies... oh, the frequencies!), Giulio Aldinucci has thrown everything at us in one complete, perfectly formed album."
