Markantonio think there is not a real source of inspiration in all this. When I am in the studio I behave in a natural way, giving free rein to my musical fantasies, the result is an eclectic work, and will not always produce the same kind of music. From this reflection comes MKT Rec, my other label designed as a platform for tracks from different style than what I usually propose on Analytic Trail.

Italian Techno heavyweights Markantonio and Rino Cerrone finally name their collaborative ventures after ten years of gigs and productions together, and the name is Junction Hands.
'Revolution is Back' is the first full release under the Junction Hands moniker, following a well received outing as part of the recent 'The Napoli Connection EP' on Adam Beyer's Drumcode and it sees the two veterans deliver some of their strongest work yet.
The title track is a pacey number with a reverb soaked yet warm atmosphere which underpins an aggressive, simple and incredibly effective bass/drum loop which gains intensity throughout. Sharp sounds puncture the groove here there which keeps things interesting but it's the discordant stabs in the break which push things into overdrive.
The equally hypnotic and driving 'Thing For Hands' follows but manages to do so with an increased feeling of woozy menace. Synths feedback on themselves to shattering crescendos before subsiding into waves of Noise while the groove relentlessly works it's magic.
With Junction Hands there's yet another must-check name coming out of the Neapolitan scene.
