SO Playlist 002 – Simone Gatto

24. February 2016

The low down

Eclectic dance music activist Simone Gatto released his debut album “Detachment” on New York based outlet Sheik ‘N’ Beik. The vinyl has been available from the 15th of February and the digital version will be out on the 15th of March.

The album represents the path of life, the flow of time and the emotions occurring in human beings from their birth to death in an audio & visual experience.

Hard to argue with that! You can stream the entire album below:

We asked Simone to put together a playlist for us, so we could get an insight into the tastes and selections of the man who created “Detachment”

He’s gone over and above the call, by providing us not just 10 tracks, but TEN ALBUMS which he provides a bit of information on. How’s that for some music to check out, huh?!

Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto – Vrioon LP on Raster Noton

Simply awesome, one of the best album i have in my collection. Every time i listen to it, it grab my soul!

Brian Eno – Thursday Afternoon

I got so much inspiration from this ambient piece meanwhile i was writing my album. It bring me to another dimension… Timeless!

Conforce – Presentism LP on Delsin

Always been a fan of Conforce productions. This LP is a much warmer, more organic and aquatic bit of floating modern techno.. love it!

The Exaltics – The Truth 2008 – 2013 on Solar One Music

A refine selection of some of the Exaltics greatest tracks. I’ve been playing them a lot in the last years.

Surgeon – From Farthest Known Objects on Dynamic Tension

Great techno album, I think is the best Surgeon album’s ever.

Anna Caragnano & Donato Dozzy – Sintetizzatrice on Spectrum Spools

Dozzy has significantly contributed to the contemporary electronic music scene since the turn of this century. He is using the voice of Anna Caragnanoon this album with no additional instruments. The results are simply phenomenal!

L’Estasi dell’Oro – I Look upon Nature while i live in a steel city LP on Field Records

Great expressive and expansive modern techno album that is perfectly at home on the always interesting Field Records.

Orlando Voorn – Black Diamond LP on Out -Electronic Recordings – OUT-ER

I released this amazing album on my label in 2014 and i’m proud of it. Orlando helped me to grow up and i took so much inspiration from him.

Aphex Twin – Syro LP on Warp Records

Aphex is one of the best producer ever. I have been listening to his music since when i was sixteen and i always got so much inspiration from him.

D5 – Slides of Space LP on Delsin

Great atmospheric techno album from D5. Love the deepness of synth lines, timeless!
