Avatism –

I Was Warned About People Like Us

Enigmatic Milan, Italy-based Avatism has had a productive year and put out not only one, but two strong EP:s. The first one, broodily named I Was Warned About People Like Us, released on Vakant, has got me rewinding for hours and hours on end. Dark, bassy and organic techno with small splashes of colour that draw you into a nostalgic set of mind.

Two tracks in particular – Self Control and Gunmetal Grey – stand out with the first one quite possibly being my favourite track of the year. The latter one is a tad less ravey, eventually featuring chopped up ambient vocal samples and reeses bringing to mind some of the best the dubstep and UK Bass scenes have to offer.
