Club Atletico, the new EP from Petrolio is out today via Depths Records

Club Atletico, the new EP from Petrolio is out today via Depths Records.
Named after one of the detention centres established by the Argentine dictatorial regime in order to torture political dissenters, Club Atletico is the result of the artist’s intimate research in the field of imprisonment. Inspired by the movies of Marco Bechis about the Argentine dictatorship, the EP translates the tragedy of the Dirty War onto the sonic perspective.
Each track was composed using a mix of digital and analog equipment.
In Club Atletico, the musical flow is spontaneously generated through experimentations on new analog and virtual samplers, which aim to create dark and evocative atmospheres. The compositions are set to be enriched by vocal lines in the future. To this extent the artist states: “my need to also deliver a message will be moulded in the future, through the addition of lyrics”.
Petrolio is a solo project started in 2015 by Enrico Cerrato. Over the past few years the artist released a number of singles, EPs and albums, touring all across Europe and sharing the stage with the likes of Lingua Ignota, Of the Wand & the Moon, Winterkälte, Uochi Toki, Bologna Violenta, Mai Mai Mai and Pankow to name but a few.
