ARGIA

After a rather long creative break, Boxer Recordings and Dusty Kid
have returned with a rather unusual acoustic near-death
experience: "Argia" not only is the title of Dusty Kid's new maxi release,
but also the name of a spider indigenous to Sardegna;
the most feared Argia spider can inflict a painful bite which can be fatal to human beings.
Once bitten, the torture begins: the victim might suffer of
hallucinations, the musculoskeletal system gets completely
out of control, and it looks as if the victim would perform a wild and uncontrolled dance. The longer the poison acts, the wilder
the movements become, until the victim at first enters a trance
state, and finally finds himself completely paralyzed.

In Sardinian culture, there is a traditional dance that represents
the various states of the poisoning, and is used as antidote against
the spider bite. Dusty Kid, born and raised in Sardinia and
more than familiar with this tradition, comes up
with a contemporary version to describe this centuries-old
tradition: the slow-acting poison that gradually builds
up creating hallucinating sound experiences until a trance
and paralyzed state is reached. A state when the body
stops moving, completely exhausted,when everything has
been said, and when only the soft crackling of the last
rill reminds us that we are lucky, because: It's just music!
