The EP is named after one of the detention centres established by the Argentine dictatorial regime in order to torture political dissenters. Club Atletico is the result of the artist’s intimate research in the field of imprisonment. Inspired by the movies of Marco Bechis about the Argentine dictatorship, the EP translates the tragedy of the Dirty War onto the sonic perspective.
The music across the four tracks draws inspirations from various styles and artists that influenced the artist’s musical taste such as Ben Frost, Jon Hopkins, Pan Sonic and Mogwai; yet there are also hints of Coil, Sunn O))) and Atrium Carceri in there.
