Matias Aguayo Are You Really Lost?
- Words: Daniel Siwek
- Label: Kompakt
At its best, Eurosleaze is equally suitable for dancing, drugging or decapitating, and Matias Aguayo's latest is no exception; songs like "Radiotaxi" are perfect for a decadent night on the town. Formerly one half of the tech-house duo Closer Musik, Aguayo is, well, more minimal than others, even while creating "Billie Jean" moments for could-be Argento soundtracks. Unashamed ‘80s synths and skeletal drums give this music Italo charisma, but it retains its stark edges. In the end you aren't lost at all, you've just found a really clever disc.
