Amsterdam-based record label XXX goes full Dutch-y on their next outing. Joining the team is Luca Dell’Orso who brings out his trademark Italo vibes over the course of 5-track 12″.

Having previous released work on Bordello A Parigi, Red Laser Records and Nufragio, Luca dell’Orso debuts on SHMLSS’ XXX imprint with a wide-ranging Italo excursion. From high-tension energy to more sophisticated slow burners, this EP showcases what Luca’ studio capabilities. With Machinegewehr suppling the remix, he takes a darker approach for strobe-fueled basement moments and concludes the package on a high note.

For the artwork, instead of using conventional methods for image production, graphic designer Niels van Haaften decided to code his own image processing algorithm from scratch. By accessing the image as a data set, new imagery can be drawn based on the data set. The algorithm coded specifically for the sleeve of XXX009 translates an image of flowers.
