"Mario Gabola aka Mario is a member of Aspec(t) from Napoli, which released on Dokuro an earthshaking CDR back in 2010 (DK022 Skinless).
XBCE – born from the partnership between Dokuro and Viande, Gabola's very own label – is his second attempt as a solo.
As in the former "May Solo" (Suoni grezzi/Viande), Mario's collaborators and forever friends M. Argenziano, G. Leandra e Sec_ take part in the recording and as usual Gabola plays with self-built devices, no input, feed drum, feedback and saxophone. XBCE tracks are as always characterised by sharp sound and are packed with sonic energy – they shift from explosions of unrestrained noise to rarefied moments of apparent calm, leading to the inevitable chaotic and cathartic explosion. This is the Fire music to our rotten times.
