Azimute – Control // out now on Crosstown Rebels
Introducing a fresh electronic pairing as AZIMUTE (Quenum & Cesare Marchese aka Cesare vs Disorder), Crosstown Rebels get set to present a glowing debut EP comprising three original cuts of pure and understated class. Lead track ‘Control’ pulses with robotic sex appeal as creepy sluggish grooves and low-end swing collide with hypnotic percussion and rumbling bass. ‘Always’ by contrast begins life as a more skittish affair, until an unexpected and powerful bluesy soul vocal and undercurrent of UK bass pervades this ever-evolving sonic framework. Closing the package, ‘Where Is The Magic’ shows AZIMUTE at their most frenetic and energetic, where the pacey percussion and propulsive groove is interjected with a dose of weirdness. AZIMUTE’s statement of intent is a bold and playful one, conveying the raw talents of two of electronic music’s true heads and masters.
