Product Details


Our latest compilation project explores the under-acknowledged realm of Italian underground electronic music and new wave, recorded during a time of extreme political turmoil during the 80s. "When people think of Italian music, they often think of Italo disco or prog rock," explains compiler Alessio Natalizia of the Kompakt outfit WALLS. "For me, this more experimental end of the new wave scene is the most exciting music to emerge from Italy over the last 30 years and, since much of it was originally released in such limited quantities, it has remained relatively undocumented until now."

In fact, much of the music covered on Mutazione was originally released only on cassette, sometimes in conjunction with fanzines published by political groups whose message was entwined with the music. Stylistically, the music ranges from brooding new wave and post-punk to raw electronic pieces and claustrophobic, whispered vocal cuts. This is some of the most adventurous electronic music we've collected so far on Strut, and an amazing overview of a unique time and aesthetic that has yet to be fully canonized.

Mutazione CDs and LPs will include extensive sleeve notes by two of Italy's leading music and cultural journalists, Andrea Pomini and Alberto Campo, both now of Rumore magazine. The package also features a wealth of original photos alongside artwork from fanzines, cassettes and LP covers. The collection will be release August 6th on 2 x CD and 2 x LP.
