A first listen into Joseph Capriati‘s second artist album, Self Portrait, has landed in the form of a ferocious, double-sided single sized to techno proportion. Awake/Fratello has been delivered to hold fans over until the release of Capriati’s highly anticipated second album on the Drumcode label this September.
With rumbling percussion, jagged synths, and the drum presence we know and love from Capriati, allow Joseph to Awake your mind with his newest techno mood enhancers. The Italian definitive for “brother,” Fratello plays accomplice to Awake on this two-sided single, having become one of the most highly requested tracks since its debut in Joseph’s sets last September. Such a triumphal, emotive melody could be dedicated to Capriati’s younger brother, of whom the artist has endearingly spoke in recent interviews. The result is a hypnotic melody built on intricate key patterns that shows a softer side to the techno virtuoso.
