Selections: Alessandro Cortini

Welcome back to Selections, a series of exclusive artist-curated Spotify playlists from those in the know.

Best known for his work in the influential US industrial band Nine Inch Nails, Italian multi-instrumentalist and synth obsessive Alessandro Cortini is also a respected artist in his own right, with a rep in electronic circles as an avid gear collector.

In October, he released the album AVANTI and earlier this year, opened an online store via Reverb to sell unused gear from his personal collection.

Beyond gear, we’re excited to also be given some insight into the multi-hyphenate’s listening habits. Below, Cortini procures a 90-minute playlist of alt-rock and electronic tracks fused with experimental sounds – and there’s some curveballs thrown in for good measure. Hit play below for Underworld’s Born Slippy, Radiohead, Aphex Twin, The Chemical Brothers and, contrastingly, pioneers of grindcore Carcass.

Alessandro Cortini appears at FIBER X The Rest Is Noise at Muziekgebouw on Friday 5 January 2018
