Bahamas EP

Luca Bacchetti

CP028 | 2012-10-11  
Culprit close the summer series of EPs with the label debut from Luca Bacchetti. The %u2018Bahamas EP%u2019 spans two original tracks that are as unabashedly hot climate and open-air discotheque suited as anything the label has released. True to Culprit%u2019s way, Bacchetti %u2013 a veteran of the global underground scene %u2013 delves deeper into his analog vintage side, with results that are rich in texture and full in feeling.
%u2018Bahamas EP%u2019 shows Bacchetti in a confidently melodic and eclectic mood. Inspired in equal measure by disco, Italo and a bit of French House the EP is a mature work of a multi-faceted producer who finds just the right match for his deep sensibility in the Los Angeles-based label.
Sun-soaked %u2018A Night in Nassau%u2019 is an exceptionally upbeat slice of modern disco with a twist. A piece of machine soul where strong electronic groove sits comfortably underneath original piano keys and vocals, a stardust-like melodic bassline and those ubiquitous warm guitar licks that are the unifying musical element of Culprit%u2019s summer output.
%u2018Such a Dreamer%u2019 is a very cutting edge update on the Italo sounds circa 1983, a little bit tough and propulsive but with a soft, piano-led middle and a killer arpeggiated bassline in the finest Moroder tradition. The EP slots in perfectly with its %u201Csummer trilogy%u201D predecessors %u2013 the A side invisibly connected to jozif%u2019s %u2018Standard Rising,%u2019 the flip closer to the Climbers deep electronic edge.
Completing the package is two variations on %u2018A Night in Nassau%u2019 that will appeal to DJs in different sonic moods. Never loopy, always evolving and musically sophisticated, %u2018Bahamas EP%u2019 showcases Luca Bacchetti at his best retro, yet uniquely forward-thinking self%u2026fitting Culprit%u2019s modus operandi to a tee.
