The “worst-kept secret in London-based computer acid” is finally out.
Powell and Jaime Williams’ Diagonal label has formally announced an album and 12″ from Alessio Natalizia’s Not Waving project with what might be the greatest press shot of the year.
Formerly a member of Walls, Natalizia’s solo work as Not Waving fits comfortably into Diagonal’s aesthetic of wavy club bangers. According to the label, his first 12″ for the label, ‘Get Serious’, comes with a “fiercer, fizzier edge that makes the Diagonal connection a bit of a no-brainer.”
Not Waving has been a part of the Diagonal fold for over a year now, with material from the producer alluded to several times by Diagonal founder Powell during that time. The as-yet-untitled album is scheduled to be released in early 2016, with remixes from Diagonal mascot Russell Haswell and An-I to follow.
According to Diagonal’s press release, Natalizia had this to say on his partnership with the label: “They made me do it.”
The Get Serious 12″ is released in late November – in the meantime you can stream the title track below. Powell and Not Waving will also be playing at Club To Club festival in Torino this weekend – more on that here.
