‘Tusk b/w Aku’, Cleveland’s new EP is about to be out on the US label ESP Institute.

Few months after his first EP on this renowned label, the techno producer Andrea Mancini, AKA Cleveland, is releasing two brand new progressive and trippy tracks, on June 8th.

ESP Institute says : “'Tusk' is a beautiful paradox-rhythm programs that churn like the inner workings of a grandfather clock, unmistakably mechanical, yet fashioned through muted analogue instrumentation that paints a deceptively organic picture. The crystallized jangle of FM synth voices toy with the softened drum patterns and vibrant animal-like chord gestures over nearly seven minutes of splendor.

'Aku' digs further into mysticism, manifesting digital jungle themes, cleverly abstracted through erratic bleeps, distant tribal drums, atonal flutters and synthetic bird calls.

The cinematic quality of Cleveland’s production shines through both tracks, but its 'Aku' that sweeps us from reality to embark on a moonlit expedition in search long lost treasures, proving Cleveland a virtuoso skilled in building complex narratives with sound.”

Just a little more patience, it’s coming! In the meantime, you already can stream and enjoy some snippets of the tracks here. You can also read Pitchfork’s review on ‘Tusk’ here.
