Translated from the original Italian

“2022 album for Sicilian musician and producer Giuseppe Musumeci, better known as Willem Gator.

Willem Gator is a self-taught composer, guitarist and electronic music programmer. His futuristic background leads him to pour powerful bass on highly distinctive grooves created by his very personal views on sound and the pursuit of rhythm.

Willem Gator has performed across Europe, sharing the stage with musicians such as FM Einhet (Einsturzende Neubauten), Flying Luttenbachers, Unsane, DJ Spooky, Pansonic, Nobokazu Takemura, U-Cef, Battles and Art Brut.

The tracklist includes ambient techno tracks (A Journey Of A Thousand Miles Begins With A Single Step and When Stuck, Hit The Road) tech house (I Was A Raging Dog, Even The Finest Sword Plunged Into Salt Water Will Eventually Rust and The Highlights Of A Failure), which can call Jon Hopkins or the German techno school depending on the mood.

There is also room for sounds that recall Mike Oldfield (What Dies In Beauty Dies In Me) and modern classical (Sounds Are Running Race The Trek The Climb The Swim The Pace), until the ambient closure of Poets Don’t Finish Poems, They Abandon Them.

Willem Gator offers us a techno that is always spinning and direct, never ostica, but full of pathos and suggestions, capable of creating ethereal and melancholic atmospheres together.

Recommended for those who love the music of Jon Hopkins, Plaid, Giorgio Moroder.”
