Andrea Belfi - Strata
Outcrop is built around a pulsating electronic dub beat. The drop of a syncopated kick and mounting polyrhythms underpin the solemn Ravine, before the album comes to a close with Plateau, a driving and sinister conclusion that revisits elements of Strata and the trippy momentum of the Gnawa rhythms. The internal structure of Strata is fittingly built on layers of repetitions and variations across all tracks: Shale, Strata, Fault and Plateau share the same harmonic and melodic structure, while Outcrop and Ravine are both explorations of the traditional song formula.
All tracks except for Plateau – which can be understood as a techno remix of Strata - were recorded as live studio takes incorporating the sound quality of the studio space. The album was recorded by Simon Goff at Vox Ton in Berlin and mixed by Rocco Marchi at Obst und Gemüse in Bologna. Capturing the impetus of Belfi’s formidable live performances, Strata’s skilfully builds up momentum to its explosive final release.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
