With Ellen Allien at the helm, the Berlin-based BPitch Control has positioned itself as a mainstay imprint since its formation in 1997, which over the years has stacked up a good back catalogue of releases from names that include the likes of Modeselektor, Paul Kalkbrenner, Ben Klock, Apparat & Sascha Funke. Following on from her debut LP ‘Solstice’, released on BPitch back in 2013, Silvie returns to its family with ‘Crying Love’.
Italian-native Silvie Loto initially cut her musical teeth as a resident at the Tenax club in Florence, and it was from here that she went on to head up residencies at parties that include
Ultrabeat at Goa in Rome, Jamie Jones’ ‘Paradise’ at DC10 and Marco Carola’s ‘Music On’ at Amnesia.
‘Breeze’ and title track ‘Crying Love’ are examples of Silvie blurring the lines between house and techno, incorporating her own vocals over soft pads, warm resonating bass and shifting percussion to deliver deeply emotive and melodic cuts. The final two offerings on the release take a slightly more kinetic approach. From the drums and synths of ‘Flow’ to the hazy modulations and deep resounding tones of ‘Woo’ the talented producer showcases her versatility and eclectic taste with ease in these four tracks.
The EP’s out on Friday.
