ADULT CONTEMPORARY NIHILIST.

The Vienna-based musician and producer Dino Spiluttini reacts to emotional dynamics between uncertainty, fear and sadness with his expressive perspective on contemporary electronic music. The ever-present emotional force of his music arises from their longing for dissolution, without ever actually finding it; their longing for fulfillment and a respite is not infrequently interrupted by restlessness and oppressive brooding. This drama is given weight by Spiluttini’s careful production. His strength shows in frugal arrangements that are chewed up in thrashing incantations, in personified agitation, in frustration with one’s own identity and discomfort with the world. He quotes stylistically from EDM, house, new music and classical music, and always manages to unmistakably imprint his own brand on the whole. Spiluttini’s latest publication, Heaven (Editions Mego, 2019), ponders death, reunification, and the inadequacy of one’s body.

degradation becomes a vital component, no longer symbolic of fault but enriched with a purpose that only broken audio is able to fulfil.“ (ATTN:MAGAZINE)
