The Perfecto Black label is back and it does so this time with two great artists, Franco Armellini and Ignacio Berardi. They are the kind of artists who do not stitch without a thread, who know what they are doing at all times and leave nothing to chance, although sometimes their decisions may seem unusual or out of place. And if, in addition, after a consecration in the underground, we see him doing his thing with Twilight Memo and Command, it leaves us even more surprised.

Command is determined to bring to light the most edgy and dark beats that we love to present on Perfecto Black. Acid takes, frenetic fills, mutes, flanger effects, and distant-echoing metallic effects are artfully interspersed between spectral chorus segments and addictive hypnotic rhythms.

Twilight Memo is the best of the pack. Driving synths, nostalgic strings and whispering vocal takes set the right atmosphere for the magnanimous melodies that blend into the mix towards the long-awaited break.

The entire album manages to provide introspection, absorbing energy and twilight light, and that closes a record that knows how to turn musical pulp into a refreshing ambrosia juice. The more the record is listened to, the more difficult it is to locate it in a specific geographical location. His music seems to never solidify, to be a flow of sounds and impressions that never seem to stay fixed in place or memory, like a perfume or a quick vision of a body in motion, until it postulates as one of the True future values of tame and lustrous electronics.

The idea that drives this album refers us to one of the crucial attributes of music, and it is its inexhaustible capacity to generate moods that protect us at all times. Its meaning remains in the hands of lovers of electronic music, beyond the dance floor and all hedonism.

This work can and should be heard as a portion of timeless music, which conveys a positive idea in times of conflict, and its aesthetic appeals to the most basic, deep and receptive of the spirit. This producer, in short, designs a wide and fragile sound to listen and feel from the depths.
