Reissue: II Guardiano Del Faro – Oasis

Reissue: Il Guardiano Del Faro - OasisItalian new age visionary Il Guardiano del Faro‘s 1978 LP Oasis has been reissued by new London label Time Capsule.

The new reissue label unites the record collectors and DJs of the Brilliant Corners and Beauty & The Beat communities in London. For each release, Kay Suzuki will work alongside one of these talented co-curators to remaster and repackage the music they hold dear into perfectly restored historic artefacts. For this release Suzuki teamed up with Brilliant Corners regular and Meda Fury signing Ryota OPP.

Il Guardiano Del Faro (translated as “the guardian of lighthouse”) was the moniker of Federico Monti Arduini, an early adopter of the tradition among electronic producers to use a moniker to disguise his identity.

He produced many albums, but Oasis stands out from the pack. Spiritual synth sounds cover the album in a dreamy haze, oscillating between ambient and psychedelic.

“The passionate, sweet and dramatic sound of Il Guardiano Del Faro made me fantasise about so many romantic aspects of Italian culture. Oasis is sonically more interesting than his other albums and these exotic, eccentric rhythms sound quite familiar to the modern music fans.”Ryota OPP
