Eleven of July – Drived [BrokenHearted]

5 min read

Presenting their first release of the year, BrokenHearted welcomes Eleven Of July back to the label for a new EP. Since emerging in 2017 Italian artist Augusto Proto aka Eleven Of July has forged a distinctive sound which focuses on inventive use of melody and rhythm, drawing the lines between global dance cultures without adhering to any fixed formula. On the strength of support from Adriatique, Dubfire, Mind Against and Undercatt, Eleven Of July has been operating at the heart of the melodic house and techno movement. The birth of BrokenHearted has given Augusto a home for his most sought-after creations, a landing spot where the Italian has already released four standout productions across a creative eight month stretch. Now, opening 2023 in style, Eleven Of July follows up last year's well-received 'Love Over Reason' with a new two-track showcase entitled 'Drived'.

EP opener and title selection 'Drived' finds Eleven Of July composing with a strong sense of space. With each sound being an event in a slowly expanding landscape, zooming out to reveal a world of scale in which depth and contrast coax perfectly with rhythm and melody. Etching towards a darker monochrome, its tough kick drums and rippling bass stabs lead to electrified iterations of new age sonics, where driving percussive arrangements, balmy overlays and ethereal synth phrasing unite for a finale that is equal parts tense and emotive.

Meanwhile, the companion piece 'Presage' lands with an equally impressive display of craftsmanship. Building with an ultrasonic pulse, its smoky resonance eventually gives way to wavy arps and wispy effects, where textural and structural dimensions blanket rolling beats and percussive flashes, before ultimately giving way to a series of choir-like overlays, onwards to a prophetic finale. A thunderous conclusion to a fresh two-track odyssey, one where Eleven Of July carefully balances technique and musicality, thus continuing his tenure as one of Italy's rising musical mavericks.
