'Journey at the End of the Brain is the second release by Gianluca Salvadori, aka Pushlock, after his debut album on cassette, Healing Process. Gianluca is based in Treviso and is a real drum 'n' bass, dubstep and UK sonorities addict since always. His new album comes as a reinterpretation of these sounds, with a fresh approach to sound design and the ambition to redefine those genres through an introspective vision. This LP is a promenade across Pushlock’s brain synapses, showing his multi-genre sonic architecture across echoes of UK oriented electronic music.
Journey at The End of The Brain opens the A side with an uplifting dose of breaks; the tech junglish assault of Ghosting gets scanned by cutting drumz and large hall reverberated reese bass, perfectly fitting the soundtrack of the dirtiest dream of the perfect night out in the club. Chaotic Neutral, a wild tune reminiscent of early Source Direct, acts as the amen track of the LP which burns bright before slowing down into the mental trip-hop excursion of Purple Leaf. The A side ends with Skyline, a virtual soundscape designed with broken stabs and hypnotic atmospheres.
Hexacomb, a 160 bpm half beat driving force opening the B side represents a unique blend of syntethic textures with a dirty beat giving only a minute of breath with the entrance of those celestial strings and classic piano phrases. Urania and Cannonball cover the 140-150 BPM zone of the LP, showing the mutant dubstep infused side of Pushlock characterized by 3/4 progressions, leftfield inspired atmospheres and distorted basslines. Common Ground acts as the perfect outro, leading the listener through a cathartic path to the end of the brain.'
