Hailing from Italy, producer Mattia Trani is gearing up to release his latest album titled The Hi-Tech Mission on May 13. Trani has been representing the Detroit sound in Italy for some time now, with releases on Minimalsoul Recordings, as well as his Pushmaster Discs imprint (a label that has also hosted the likes of Ilario Alicante, Myles SergĂ© and Percyl). In a recent interview with XLR8R, Trani explains how the idea of space travel inspired his album, saying: “I love space, I love the planets, I love this unknown universe around us, and so for my listeners the idea is to imagine going into a space shuttle for an unknown destination. The music accompanies the listener’s entering of the ‘Hi-Tech Shuttle’ together with me.”

Ahead of this release, Mattia Trani has graciously offered up the title track off his upcoming album as an XLR8R download. Coming in at 132 BPM, the track is a heaving and acidic undertaking with a knotty Detroit feel that pays homage to Motor City artists such as Juan AtkinsDerrick May, and Underground Resistance who have played a crucial role in shaping the artist’s sound.
