Our next tale on Chapter 24 is spun by Italian act Three Hands Collective (THC), with the powerful Lunare EP.
The trio - composed of Riccardo 'Cap' Cappelli, Riccardo 'Ohm Guru' Rinaldi and Luca 'Lu-Me' Mercatali - combine their musical and technical experience to create an original and captivating sound, which has become a favourite with the likes of Tale of Us, Fur Coat and André Hommen.
Here they serve up an impactful five-tracker. Title track ‘Lunare’ offers a peak-time euphoric flourish, marrying timeless, transcendent trance chords with an afro techno roll.
Meanwhile, 'Till The End Of Dawn' arrives in two flavours, with the Africa Dub replacing the eerie spoken vocal with clarinet and congas - both versions packing a punch for late night dance floors.
They are followed by 'Kalimba', which is similarly marked by a combination of techno and organic, percussive touches in a deep and exploratory piece.
'Desert Rose' is the deepest, most laidback and textured of the pack. Stunning, evocative sound design beckons the listener to lose themselves in a dream-like world. A fitting closer.
With the Lunare EP, THC continue their story on Chapter 24 and demonstrate the sharpness of their instincts about the beat and the soul of the electronic avant garde.
