Two years since his last releases for Hospital Productions, Ron Morelli returns with “Disappearer“.
“Disappearer” claws and tears its way through 13 tracks at 54 minutes long, touching upon everything from cold stripped back electronics, to hints of 90s Hague scum techno, to grim passages reminiscent of early tape minimalists, the amalgamation forms a nasty sonic narrative that reaches an explosive unsettling apex. This is a definitive return to tense, urgent punk roots. the minimal beat construction, unexpected acid burned vocals, and stark atmospheres touch upon Morelli‘s full spectrum of influences with signature rusted razor production.
Composed over the last two years in various foul states, the album is a fusion of base level hardware programming, open room mic recordings and extensive computer processing, all finalized in the Paris studio of Krikor Kouchian.
Compositionally, Morelli has fused the brute immediacy of his then controversial now cult ‘Spit’ debut album with intricate compositional cut-ups of cassette culture with the updated crushing production having circled and lived Europe’s nightclub circuit for close to a decade.
