With his project Prostitutes, James Donadio is part of the growing community of producers, whose music is moving along the border between experimental noise and techno. Hence, on Spectrum Spools, the sublabel of Editions Mego, Prostitutes is in good company, since artists like Container or Unicorn Hard-On follow very similar aesthetic strategies with their records. However, in contrast to his colleagues, Prostitutes acts less brutal by operating on an even slimmer range of sound-variations, while his insisting and percussive tracks are often somewhat tribalesque. His minimalism follows the classic pattern of successive variation – either within individual sounds and rhythms or through slight adjustments in the mix. In doing so, he’s less interested in the trance-approach (ecstatic progression over long intervals) than in the mind-fuck that arises from repetitions in small spaces: It hardly ever takes him longer than three minutes to reach the climax of a track. Sometimes, like on the pumping »Four Basic Forces«, he even seems to have the people on the dancefloor in mind, whose bodies are in search for the right way of moving to his beats. It’s reduced music with finely nuanced details – you better listen closely!
