In a rich history of amplified sound, probably no guitar-bass-drums trio has transcended further beyond its instrumental comfort zone than Elektro Guzzi just do here. Years of practice had made them the tightest machine funk outfit in the world, at a performance level few believed possible - until you actually saw them on stage. With “Observatory”, now the band totally shifts everything anyone ever expected from a band. Tellingly, instrument credits have been wiped off the record sleeve. Still a string and a drum skin at the source, yet the sound emanating from the speakers seems to have traveled light years. Utterly alien, “Observatory” unfolds into a paradigm shift for both, the performance of music – and the music performed.
Even with all software advances available, ironically it is this band that now takes the initiative to redesign a fantasy of how techno could leap into the future. There is nothing retro about it. No citations of historic moments. None of that. Thus, the album tracks resemble a party on the edge of the solar system, with scraps of distant sound memories formed into a crashed bit stream of sound - a shocking abandonment of anything an instrument was supposed to do. The recordings’ analog tape warmth is at a stark contrast to the music’s skynet thrust: a time capsule of techno projected into the dark unknown. Metallic and bodily at the same time, a love cry miles from home...
