Berlin-based but with Italian roots, Draccar has been making waves with darkly exotic techno sounds that have found their way into the bags of DJs like Maceo Plex, Richie Hawtin and Carl Craig. He has a love of crafting luxuriant soundscapes that mix up sharp textures with more intricate designs and hot atmospheres designed for warehouse deployment. His Lush Point label is a home for this work and this latest is another fine statement.
Draccar manages to create unique and cinematographic landscapes, full of character and good judgment. But this proposal is also a lesson, a way of understanding not only music, but culture, beyond the precarious status that currently governs, as something expendable, as if music, books or art did not save us. Forget about this magmatic present for a moment, close your eyes and let yourself be carried away by each one of the notes that this singular producer proposes, because within ‘Leclipse’ he is safe and it seems that everything is starting over.
This piece demonstrates the particular way of understanding the sound of Draccar. The idea that drives this piece 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.
Draccar can and should be listened to as a portion of timeless music, which transmits a positive idea in times of conflict, and its aesthetic appeals to the most basic, deep and receptive of the spirit. Draccar, in short, designs a wide and fragile sound to listen and feel from the depths.
