Continuously re-imagining his sound and style, the Grammy-winning artist Sharam digs deep into his bag of production tricks for his new project Collecti, drawing heavily from the darker influences of techno. The album is comprised of a host of new material that he has been field testing with an incredible response.
“Collecti is a culmination of work that represents my endeavors into a sound that has always been near and dear to my heart and central to my sets: Techno. For my last album Retroactive, I was fixated on all of my influences over the years, for this album, however, my focus is on the darker realms. These records are my dance floor experiments, my secret weapons, tracks that have been driving my sets and I’m excited to share this body of work with everyone.” – Sharam
Part 1 opens with “Scorpi,” a new track that’s been tested to wild acclaim. Its roaring vocal-synth riffs and heavy bass line have become one of Sharam’s secret peak-time tools, so much so that he’s almost reluctant sharing it. “Mini” is more subdued, channeling some Maurizio influence with a long, continuously-modulating riff and tripped-out sounds. “Spaci” is the closest this thing gets to house, with a groovy bass line and scattering drum fills, while a remastered version of Sharam’s 2010 tour de force “Hemi” rounds out the release, a spastic eight-minute epic that pits chaotic synth squeals and chopped up noise against trudging, liquefied bass.
Parts 2, 3, and 4 will follow in August, September, and October respectively.
