Patch Notes: INIT

video by FACTmagazine

"INIT is the collaborative project of Berlin-based producers Nadia D’Alò and Benedikt Frey. The duo’s first album, Two Pole Resonance, was released back in October 2015 on John Talabot’s Hivern Discs label, showcasing the pair’s love of moody, krautrock-influenced synth compositions, which featured vocals from D’Alò.

INIT returned to the label in late 2020 with their second LP, Gravity. The album saw the duo adopting a more playful approach to songwriting, combining house, techno, post-punk and electro to create a lighter set of tracks than their debut. This eclectic style drives INIT’s Patch Notes session, which melds D’Alò’s lyrics with experimental sound design.

The session sees the duo make use of classic gear like Roland’s TR-808 drum machine and SH-101 synth, with contemporary hardware including a x0xb0x and SOMA’s Pulsar-23 semi-modular drum machine providing eerie textures.
