Due to circumstances beyond our control, the release date is set to early autumn!
The recent involvement of Linnea, will make the new album a robust one!
Approaching release, Conny Olivetti will contact you via the email you sent
(for request for a free physical copy of the new album).
If you have not yet provided us with an email, please do so,
to make sure you can be reached upon release date for the new album.

My copy of Magnetism took its time getting down under, but it was well worth the wait.

For starters, it is simply the most elegant album Conny has made. The sonic structures are all very streamlined, mostly downtempo and minimally clad but the tracks still have a richness about them that belies its foundations. That starts with the lovely sequence-touches throughout that don't get stuck in a repetitive groove but playfully intersect with deft washes of synth and samples. The opening salvo, Magnetism, Magnetic Dance and Magnetic Love (there is no track called Magnetic Fields) have a lovely, loose-limbed feeling, sonically similar to the less frenetic bits out of Kraftwerk's Tour De France Soundtracks, but still it is uniquely Olivetti- centering most tracks with narrative pieces and wispy vocals courtesy of regular singer Linnea and a slow, almost dub-like percussion-tempo. It's when the following tracks, Red Passport and Electromagnetism focus more on samples and less on melody that the mood drifts away but when the pace picks up again on side two, with Flow Of Electric Current the sublime highlight, parity is fully restored. Subtitled In Search Of The Holy Beat the total fulfillment of such treasure may not arrive but this album proves that the search itself is better than reaching the destination. Top effort!
