- 000 - Borders of Limbo - AMAM027
Sardinian production wizard 000 is back with a well-seasoned plate of four tech-house tracks (plus two more as a digital bonus) in the form of the Borders of Limbo EP. 000 joined the AMAM roster last summer with the finely tuned Camel’s Pace EP (amamextra018), which made quite a splash in the international club scene: Ibiza Voice praised its “unexpected depth”, while Local Suicide reviewed it as “another brilliant release … minimal yet groovy”, and it earned glowing feedback from numerous DJs like Thomas Schumacher, Audiofly and Pig & Dan. Meanwhile, 000 a.k.a. Enrico Sedda kept busy by teaming up with AMAM founder Alessio Mereu on two remixes (for and Iori Wakasa and Mr. Leman) and contributing to the label’s Hand Out compilation (amamextra022) in December.
“Rats and Butterflies” is a captivating opener; like the title implies, it’s got both beauty and grit in equal measures. The EP’s title track follows, contrasting fluid deepness and blippy percussion for a fullness of flavor. On the vinyl’s flipside, “Almost Tenor” has a metallic hue for a comparatively colder and darker moment, just in time for the closer, “Kill Green”, where a peppy beat is undercut by atmospheric washes, offering a subtlety that many producers these days lack. But wait, there’s more! As a digital bonus, “From the Edge” offers gurgling electro and the hectic “ReClatter” shows 000’s more hypnotic, spacey tendencies. Check it out!
