Indian Wells really capitalizes on the beautiful, alien, timbres that the synthesizer can produce and pushes out of himself such a gorgeous and graceful set of songs. It is rare to hear a record so sweeping and emotive that appeals to the sensibilities of sound system culture and simultaneously extends so far beyond it. The album cover tantalizes.
Favorite track: The Alps.

Indian Wells, producer Pietro Iannuzzi from southern Italy, is set to release his third album ‘Where The World Ends’ via LA based Friends Of Friends on 8th September 2017. Across a range of artfully composed, emotive electronic music, ‘Where The World Ends’ channels feelings of geographical, social and political isolation formed from borders both ageless and imposed. From ‘Voices’ opening soundscape, the heavenly techno of ‘Cascades’, the melodic peaks of ‘The Alps’ and the soaring title track; ‘Where The World Ends’ is in turns ebullient and melancholic, compelling and hypnotic. Choirs of wordless vocals provide a universal element of communication throughout; breaking down barriers of language, creating connections, crossing borders.
