Pick of the weekend:
P. Leone with Discipline Signals on E-MISSIONS, EMS002.
New York’s P. Leone is back with the second release on his newly launched E-MISSIONS imprint featuring Work Them Records founder Spencer Parker on remix duties.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, where he discovered the legendary Storm Rave parties run by Frankie Bones and Adam X, P. Leone cut his teeth DJing in the Lower East side of Manhattan before making techno himself. Before long the producer dropped his first two releases on Work Them Records, joining a roster spanning Radio Slave, Spencer Parker, Young Male, Anetha and Physical Therapy. E-MISSIONS was then launched in early 2017, acting as a platform for co-founders P. Leone and CAIAZZO with more exciting artists soon to be announced.
‘Discipline Signals’ is dark and robust from start to finish, with ‘Functions of Discipline 1’ inaugurating the package with resonating kicks, trippy elements and industrial synths. ‘Functions of Discipline 2’ follows a similar aesthetic but heads into a deeper direction with its cavernous atmospherics and glitch inspired effects, making way for ‘Laced’ with its sinister drones and tantalizing melodies. Spencer Parker then remixes ‘Laced’, concluding matters with rugged drums, energetic hi-hats and a rumbling low-end.
