Stallone the Reducer is Sam Consiglio whose affiliation with Detroit’s bizzaro electronic music scene dates back to the early 2000’s. Private property is the debut LP of his Stallone the Reducer project. Growing up in Detroit, he sipped fro the same Mojo-tinted/New Dance Show flavored water as everyone else. In his teen years he became deeply obsessed with Throbbing Gristle. But it wasn’t only the mechanical rhythms and loops of TG that hooked him, it was the lust and liberation, the straight forward and unsentimental depictions of the world that they saw and ability to use sound chaos as communication, within a musical context. Here is where his musical palette diverges from the typical electro-punk bedroom button-pushers in the current electronic music spectrum: subject matter. Against the synth tones, noise, disembodied voices, and repetitive, rhythmic current, swim themes of coded language, thrown voices, sexual taboo, the politics of the apolitical, privacy and brutality, and Rome as a continuing saga, living behind every front door. The music was completed between 2013 and 2015. The 11 songs on Private Property are raw and miniature. For those willing to dance an extra beat, they bump on a dancefloor. In headphones, whispered voices and submerged zaps, fill up the ear cavity. With a couple of them, you might even be able to sing along (hint: lay your system over one of mine, alright) The theoretical, expressed via the experimental, merged with the functional and the accessible.
