“Busted breakbeats and psychedelia.
DJ Plant Texture is a drummer, if you couldn’t tell from his tracks. The Italian artist Dona Basile makes rough-and-tumble drum workouts that sound like they were found in an attic after years spent collecting dust. Jungle, house, hardcore, breaks, drumfunk—if it’s based on a breakbeat, DJ Plant Texture makes it. At a time when breakbeats are popping left and right, his raucous samples, chewed-up textures and pure speed-rush energy on releases for 1Ø PILLS MATE, Unknown To The Unknown, Ilian Tape and Jericho One set him apart from the pack. As Dona, his other alias, he makes no-nonsense house, techno and acid that harnesses the power of analogue equipment, imperfections and all. Dona tracks capture the raucous spirit of early house music in the same way that DJ Plant Texture channels hardcore and jungle.
Basile is no regular producer, and this is no regular podcast. Made with a busted turntable setup and recorded onto cassette tape for good measure, it’s nearly two hours long and presented more like a mixtape than a DJ set. He haphazardly but intuitively jumps between dance tracks old and new, soundtrack music, psychedelic rock and all kinds of other oddities. It’s meant as a snapshot of his upbringing, a mosaic of his influences. Raw, unique and straight to the point, the mix shows why Basile is poised for big things in 2018.”
