HNYPOT 232: Savile's Tangent Gallery Broom Closet



Gianpaolo Dieli wears his heart on his sleeve, literally. Written in big, bold letters on his arm is a tattoo that tells you to "Share Power." Sounds serious right? Well, Savile does not fuck around. A Chicago native, resident of Smart Bar, and label partner at Argot records, this man not only respects the hustle of his home, he takes the politics of dancing straight to the skin on his body. In the first minutes of the 232nd edition of the HNYPOTCAST, a prefacing voice suggests the potency of music un-interrupted - a call to action? a warning? Certainly both. Not only does Savile want you to move, he wants you to ponder - because the sound of industry, the hard electronic and metallic beats of midwestern techno are not about hypnosis, they are about creation, connection and conglomeration. Naming his original productions things like "Effort Won't Betray You" and "The Only Rule Is Work" strangers get a sense that this is someone not only with the determination to make it but the ethos to make it better. Thoughtful people aren't always thoughtful artists, but in the case of Savile - all the details of his output leave no trace of stoner bullshit. Particularly potent was the cover for his last record, featuring the remnants of a queer installation space and community rave warehouse called 42 Jenkins - a record which also features a poignant secret recording of The Black Madonna talking about how determination and spirit will never let you down. In the increasingly depressing world of corporatized music media, .0084 a cent revenue streams, and tyrannosaurus rexstivals, Savile wants to remind you that good music has always been in bed with radical politics and unclaimed spirituality. This mix may ask you to do some things, but it is union owned and operated so - it won't tell you to do anything it isn't prepared to do itself.
