about

When music historians take a look back at 2008, it will come as no surprise that the year wasn’t the best in terms of techno output. With cries of Abe Duque’s legendary track “What Happened?” reverberating throughout the industry, 2009 is poised to be the year where techno makes it comeback.

Chicago based producer Billy Dalessandro needs no introduction. He has been there to witness the many changes techno has gone through in the past decade, and offers “Polis” as his response.

Featuring 11 tracks, his debut album for Soniculture (and fourth artist album in his career) is a look at city structure (“Polis” being the Greek word bearing the meaning “city”), the crumbling facades amidst urban decay. The world is headed into one of its most uncertain times, and that fear is reflected in these dark productions that Dalessandro created with late nights and early mornings in mind. For from the darkest hours great things often emerge, and when music historians look back on 2009 as the year that techno made its comeback, “Polis” will certainly be among those works receiving great praise.

The vinyl version of “Polis” is formed by a series of releases with tracks from the album, released on cd and mp3. Vol. 1, released in February 2009, contains “Acidburn” and features a very special remix from Gui Boratto. The digital package adds two extra remixes from Huge Hephner and Expander. Vol.2 (on 12”) will be released at the same time as the cd and is formed by selection of the four most danceable tracks: “Callgirl”, “In the Red”, “Inebriate” and “Only your touch”. Vol. 3 will come later in the year and will feature remixes from a selection of very special artists.
