The Italian “Rave Voyeur” will present his newly announced Warp album, ‘Scacco Matto’, via a dazzling live show on Saturday 4 April during Rewire 2020.
After a series of critically acclaimed EPs for Warp, ‘Scacco Matto’ (meaning ‘check mate’ in Italian) is Lorenzo Senni’s first full-length release for the seminal UK label, due on April 24.
“There’s a constant ‘opponent’ within the tracks, like I was playing a chess game with myself,” Senni explains. “I was really trying to bring the music to a certain place and then switch advantageously to another approach. I wanted to see how far I could push the ideas I’ve been developing since ‘Quantum Jelly’, and in order to do that, I needed to force self-imposed limits and rules.”
‘Scacco Matto’ is Senni’s fifth album, after 2014’s ‘Superimpositions’ for Boomkat Editions, and sees the producer continue to refine his distinctive “pointillistic” style of electronic dance music, where taut sounds are frenetically rearranged into drum-less rhythms and melodies.
On the Saturday of Rewire 2020, experience the world premier of ‘Scacco Matto’ in the form of a dazzling live show. Day and Festival Passes available via Tickets.
