A real gem of an album in 2014: Cristiano Crisci aka Digi G’Alessio delivered his debut album for Black Acre 'Tayi Bebba'. A conceptual album that takes a tour of an imagined island, it references the unique soundscapes of house, footwork and hip hop, weaving it all in to a cohesive whole. To supplement this journey, the album comes with a full island map and in-depth story behind each track. Opening with a succession of waves announcing your arrival before fading into the early morning ambient shimmer of 'The Holy Cave' (coming across like Neu! 75 but recorded on a tropical summer day) before a bass heavy beat drops in half way through. The album then takes in a collage of styles from the proto disco of 'Ashiko' through to the round the world Randomer-indebted percussive workout of 'The Rainstick Fable'. Things take a slightly darker turn on 'Black Smokes, Bad Signs' where a dub echo swallows the half heard vocals and a tough techno beat shuffles into view in the distance, before things come back to the light with the 92' hardcore stylings of 'Conqueror (Remorse / Withdrawn)'. "Tayi Bebba" is a searching full length that across its journey showcases a unique approach to the styles and sounds from mutated jazz and off kilter jungle house to digidub and wooden footwork riddims all pieced together expertly, its a world that we will be returning to time and time again.
