Inspired by the foggy enigma of neighboring Venice, disquiet and dissonance have always played a prominent role in the work of Italian producer Massimiliano ‘Hazylujah’ Vianello. He made his bow on Dutch Techno institution Delsin back in 2011 with a collection of ever so slightly off kilter tracks that nodded to the dancefloor yet occupied their own unique and frequently unsettling territory. A second release followed last year to inaugurate new R&S distributed imprint Meda Fury, with ‘How Can You Hide From What Never Goes Away ‘ finding Vianello laying the atmospherics on heavily once again across five thoroughly weird tracks.
The EP quickly sold out and has since received a much deserved repress as we wait patiently to hear what abstractions Vianello will explore next. In the meantime we have him here on Hyp 201 – recorded live at a Meda Fury party, laying on a murky set of disorientating ambience, broken grooves and sullen rhythms that takes in Jazz, Hip-Hop, House and a fair few styles that are basically unclassifiable.
