[DI.XIII] Hyena – Into The Zone
Multi-instrumentalist and Ableton Live Certified Trainer Giona Vinti returns with his 2nd album for Dark Industry, work of a true music devotee, who also runs the Rexistenz label from Milan and has made himself quite a name in the industrial scene. The eight tracks of “Into The Zone” invite you on a trip with their cinematic, soundtrack-like structure, blurring the line between track, song (though entirely without vocals) and atmosphere. The beats are mainly very organic, like in the opener “The Cobra Gate”, the other main ingredients are minimal synth melodies, samples (“I Believe In Demons”), the wobble (“Frenzy”), warm basslines (“Old Skull”), rhythmic convolution (“Karma Burning”) or the sheer abyss of darkness (“Into The Zone”). “Back from the Icy World of Nothingness” finishes the album on a lighter, downbeat, vaguely dub-influenced note.
Reminiscent of some post rock albums, yet composed by means of electronic music, “Into The Zone” deserves your attention – and it will grow on you.
