EMG and Battista belong amongst the clutch of Italian hardware house and techno activists whose output has surfaced on multiple labels such as Relative, Warm Sounds, Live Jam and more over the past few years. Incredibly prolific, it's hard to keep tabs on all the various production endeavours they've been involved with during this period, not least because of the militant, limited vinyl-only policy. Following a recent 12" on Berceuse Heroique from EMG, the Italian is back alongside Battista for a mind bending four-track debut on Will Bankhead's The Trilogy Tapes label. Attention grabbing in all regards (you need to have this 12" in your hands to fully appreciate that artwork) EMG & Battista seem intent on blowing insufficient sound systems with their devilish improvised machine funk concoctions. The hellish, slow lysergic throb and garbled vocal samples of "Spaceman" being a highlight.
