Soft Crash is the collaborative project between Phase Fatale (Ostgut Ton/Hospital Productions) and Pablo Bozzi (half of Imperial Black Unit). They look to their core influences of synthwave, disco, and early techno to carve a new path they call “italo body music”.
According to the press release, Combining references such as William S. Burroughs and J.G. Ballard respectively, the project also functions to explore the fetishization of technology and the body and how the line between those is perpetually blurring. Increasingly, humans are reshaped and controlled by modern technology to an abysmal state; meanwhile, this technologically-made music can reinsert some emotion to try to bring back out a romantic sensibility and connection.
They have released the debut EP called Spritzkrieg which is out via BITE. Check the full streaming below.
