Recorded between 2000 and 2013, and composed from 2009, "sì" is routine's first album. The album stems from a deep love for the organic quality of electroacoustic, sporadic, raw, material sounds.

Initiating from the concrete, non-idiomatic genre, routine works its way back towards classical scores and melodies that recall the early '900 tradition, crafting instrumental tracks, which bridge between chamber music and a more pop song-like structure.

“If I was introducing someone to experimental electroacoustic music for the first time, I would play him or her something like “Sì”: the simple tonal melodies and harmonies lure the listener in, but the composition of the concrete elements and their interweaving with the more traditional instruments is conceptually rigorous and engaging. Why is there so much good music coming out of Italy these days? I’m not sure, but thanks to labels like Nephogram talented artists such as Mazzei and Ricci can find an international audience. This is a very promising début release from the pair, and I hope to hear more from them soon.”
Nathan Thomas – Fluid Radio

“Et quand beaucoup d’autres persistent à tourner en rond, Routine propose un album qui s’aventure là où l’irrégularité est cette porte ouverte sur la respiration, et où les détails viennent capter les moindres turbulences engendrées par les matériaux.”
Aurélie S. – SWQW

“Quello dei Routine sembra un intimismo calato – i nomi non si scelgono a caso – in una dimessa quotidianità, nella quale si cela però qualche pezzettino di poesia […]Sì è un disco autunnale, crepuscolare, pensato per rimuginare su tutte le cazzate fatte nella vita.”
Fabrizio Garau – The New Noise
