Descrizione a cura della band
'Sweet Sixteen' is, as the artist claims, an attempt to have a conversation with the listener on the subjects of love and despair. Despite this, the perhaps unambiguous title is intended partially as a joke, used by the artist to poke fun at himself for feeling as though he still lives the life of a real teenager - a feeling I am sure we are all familiar with. Though heavily influenced by krautrock and Italian psychedelia, Daniele's production and composition is intended to be as loose as possible in its approach. Utilizing vocal samples to craft bass and lead sounds, coupled with repeated use of Poly-800 and Juno 106 synthesizers, the record often drifts from summoning the bleary-eyed glacial spasms of Wiley's devil mixes and an oddly Final Fantasy-esque emotiveness combining with the smudged electronic aesthetic that has come to define our label over the past year or so.
