Collaboration between Bottin and Leo di Angilla, available on vinyl album (2MR/Captured Tracks, NYC, 2016). See Deardrums project for more information.

“Acclaimed Italian pair Deardrums, aka Bottin and Leo di Angilla, proudly present their adventurous debut album on 2MR. The 13-track LP is a continuation of their analogue heavy and inventive synth style as showcased on their EP ’s to date which have received support from the likes of Laurent Garnier & Chloe and covers plenty of musical ground with great aplomb. African influences, tin pot percussion and scorched synths all bring a real sense of savannah heat to proceedings on cuts like ‘Mami Wata’ and there is a sense of tribalism in the tigh tly programmed drums and claps of ‘Mayan Machine’ that really stands this one apart. Authentic and unique throughout, this is a brilliant LP that is hard to categorise but easy to love thanks to its constant evolution and wide sphere of sonic influences”
