REVIEW: Joao Ceser - Orto.brz [51Beats]

“Orto.brz” is a hymn to the agriculture of Brianza. Joao was born in Mezzago, the origin of the renowned “pink asparagus”, a unique delicacy that Joao transformed into the opening theme of the IDM house “Asparago Rosa Di Mezzago”. Then we have the "white potato" from Oreno, which dates back to the 19th century by local historians. Hypnotic voices and crisp acid sounds characterize “Patata Bianca di Oreno”, another pearl of Joao Ceser. Of course, both the pink asparagus and the white potato are usually celebrated in Brianza with well-known parties.

The Orto.brz album solidifies its place within the field of music. The result is a work as experimental as it is intense and addictive, which takes over itself like sweet poison, while progressively transporting us, as few producers with a certain fluidity are willing to do. We do not know what the future holds, but we do know that this record is testimony to a turbulent and uncertain present, which will remain in our memory forever. For records like this, we can continue to fight for a better future.

We do not know where to register his latest work by him, as he is able to navigate between various genres with ease and mastery. We could say that his retro-futuristic electronic court is the most honest and eclectic to date. This latest work, so narrative and cinematographic, invites us to enjoy it both at home and on the dance floor.

In such a complex and chaotic moment, in the middle of a pandemic, Orto.brz becomes a place as wonderful as it is necessary.
