    label: pias recordings

    Third album from the acclaimed German electronica DJ and producer.  The sound of a young artist getting in touch with his roots, exploring new landscapes and freeing inhibitions; deconstructing pop atmospheres while in search of his past, and reforming them into something deeply moving.  Drawing inspiration from the life and works of the baroque painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, the album fuses laidback pop sensibility with moody cinematographic soundscapes, a departure from previous sounds.  ‘D’ANGELO’ features elements of Balearic pop, noir jazz, post-rock, and the raw genre scramblings of fellow traveller Forest Swords, wound up into something excruciatingly personal.  Heavyweight vinyl enclosed in a gatefold sleeve with beautiful 12-page photo booklet.
