about

Berlin imprint Items & Things reintroduced itself earlier this year with Madato’s epic EP Speak Of The She Devil. Now the label's trio of techno connoisseurs - Marc Houle, Magda and Troy Pierce - entrust their imprint to Italian up-and-comer Danny Benedettini.
Danny caught the production bug at an early age, and his taste for the old school can be heard in the throwback feel of Tell Me Quietly. It’s a retro- tinged trip through modern dance floor sounds, with slickly executed beats and tight arrangements.
“Disco Hook” takes its cues directly from its name, with a wonky take on the genre. A three-note bass loop pieces it all together, combining neon melodies with a house beat for an intriguing taste of deconstructed disco. “Nephastum” takes the disco influence even deeper, while sultry cut-n- paste voices and floating Rhodes keys.
“Tia's Home” is a dark tech house jam with sharp percussion and heavy slo-mo distortion. “Fodie Joster” is Benedettini’s tongue-in-cheek thriller that increases with cinematic tension, and then gets dismantled with mental low-fi synth madness. Ascending and descending bass progressions and shooting lasers lend a pulp sci-fi feel to “Breakdown.“
**If you can get your hands on “Chillers,” the free track from the label, be sure to do so – it slips into an electro-disco guise for fresh serving of future-retro funk.
