In a scenario of overwhelming number of instruments, musicians often do not take the time to deepen and explore the creative possibilities of each gear they possess. One instrument aims at counter-acting this tendency by challenging and limiting each artist in producing a composition by using only one instrument of their choice.
One Instrument Volume 1 is the physical fulfillment of eight sound experiments composed by different producers using these guidelines: goo.gl/x9T4j2
The choice of the Various Artists format aims at creating an harmonious journey across different sub-genres in the ambient, techno and experimental worlds, which can perfectly embrace each other.
The LP opens with a composition by In Bloom, the new project of Martino Bertola, who drives us directly into a melodic ambience. To follow it is the dense, polyrhythmic experiment by Fabian Kempe’s project ‘Korridor’. Serena Butler’s piece is built around spacey sounds and breezy rhythms.
Yhdessa, the newly born Dutch-Italian duo formed by Grand River (Aimée Portioli) and Enrica Falqui, leans towards ambient atmospherics and ominous sonorities with a refined Northern European touch. Yair Elazar Glotman ventures us across his contrabass player skills giving an acoustic touch to the record.
Swedish producer, Fjäder (Ida Matsdotter), handles the flip with a moody techno cut filled with evasive analog acutes.
Claudio PRC delivers an electroacoustic soundscape created with a tiny, graceful drone machine.
The Dutch duo, Wanderwelle, closes the LP with a dreamy and delicate excursion evoking the mysterious sides of nature.

TGP 012 is Claudio PRC’s third long player. A deep techno journey composed by 7 tracks out on 2X12”, CDR and digital, mastered by Marcus Henriksson at Studio Cosmos.
012 is a new step into Claudio PRC’s sound journey, an immersive tale that follows his previous LP’s, Inner State and Volumi Dinamici, in which the sound research and the compositional form are distinctive elements of the production. With its characteristic tension and minimal approach it oscillates through deep, pulsating and atmospheric techno, rising slowly in the surface, to warmer and brighter places, like flowing water.

Interview for On the 5th Day
“What can we say… We’re a little bit in love with this dynamic and hugely talented Sardinian duo – a lot in love in fact. Take two of the most influential artists from the deep techno realm, individually making a huge impact on the scene and responsible for shaping two very distinguishable sounds; merge them together into a single act with the most sincere of intentions and friendships behind it and what do you have? Pure, incomparable audio gratification, and a performance that will stay at the forefront of your memory for a long time to come! Claudio PRC and Ness are separately known to work some serious magic behind the decks, as any On the 5th Day regulars will have experienced at previous Corsica Studios sessions. They jointly made a hugely anticipated reappearance for On the 5th Day in June 2017 and delivered a closing set which took 5th Dayers to new dizzy heights, hooking them in at the bellies and setting their souls on fire! Ahead of that set, we were fortunate enough to have a chat with the guys in the studio. We loved every minute!” – On the 5th Day
