Album Notes
Alex Marenga aka Amptek is a producer, dj and guitar player on duty in italian jazz-rock scene since the latest 80s
He’s performed with bands such as ‘ Simmetrie’ and ‘Frammenti di caos’ (an electro-acoustic experimental band). In 1997 he joined ‘Nature’ record label and recorded the LP ‘Narcos’.
Founded a record label himself called ‘Eclectic Records’ and the electro-funk band ‘Entropia’, which gave birth to many works, challenging itself with electro, break beat, IDM and ambient music .
Cd ‘Demolished man’ has been a work in progress with ‘EXIT STRATEGY’, a team of musicians formed by:
STEFANO BALDASSERONI (The Grandmothers, Patty Pravo, Moony and many others) on drums
GIANCARLO ROMANI (etruria criminale banda) on trumpet and flugelhorn
BIAGIO ORLANDI (Entropia,Quintetto Introverso, RNJ Project) on sax
DR. LOPS (Entropia) on keyboards.
The Demolished man took inspiration by an Alfred Bester’ sci-fi novel.
It tells, almost 30 years before the actual cyberpunk movement, about a society controlled by a totalitarian regime. Technology is the tool that controls and eventually modifies social behaviours while environment is going toward irreversibile process of mutations. This is an usual matter in AMPTEK works.
In The Demolished Man, Leonardo Da Vinci’s ‘Virtuvian Man’ is being transformed and tecnologically deformed, changing is ‘human’ nature and turned to ‘a man inside a point of view’.
The sound is the result of AMPTEK’s past electronic experiences.
First track ‘technology of power’ is a nervous song where a stretched guitar solo plays over an electro-funk rhythm. Minimal dub atmosphere on ‘cognitive dissonance’, instead. Psychedelic vibes on ‘Eternity blues’ and ‘La ligne de demarcation’. A Canterbury-like psychedelic rock is the marker of ‘temple of down’. Experimental textures on space-jazzy themes are heard on ‘the penultimate truth’, ‘equilibrium’ and ‘ body language’.

Brilliant collection of Electronic music
"The Demolished Man" is the latest release from the talented group Amptek and the Exit Strategy. In this album electronic artist Amptek collaborates with the instrumental ensemble known as the Exit Strategy to create an album filled with a variety of electronic songs that employs a mixture of genres and moods. The track, "Cause and Effect," is a slow moving, thought provoking song in which a crisp and clean piano interacts with the smooth and flowing drums providing a melody that is delicate and moody. "Technology of Power" is a song that is fresh and invigorating as there are edgy guitar hooks and riffs, funky bass lines, and a hue of energy bringing this song together. "Overbearing Future" is a distinctive number that uses a more danceable and distinguished beat, yet is quasi trance-like with moving sounds throughout the song. This album is for people who appreciate introspective electronic music which displays a dynamic balance of multi layered sounds and textures. If this brand of experimental electronic mood music sounds likes something you could appreciate, then you need to add "The Demolished Man" by Amptek and the Exit Strategy to your music collection.
