When we say italian artists made history of electronic music, we’re not joking.
Wanna an example?
We bet you’ve already listen to this:
Yeah, it’s “Dirty Talk” by Klein & MBO.
Klein & MBO is a moniker of italian musician Mario Boncaldo and american Tony Carrasco.
This track became instantly a classic, has anticipated house music, has influenced so many tracks (for example: “BLUE MONDAY“) and has been played by every DJ since 1982..
Tirk records released a serie of remix of this evergreen masterpiece (Greg Wilson, Toby Tobias ecc).
Also two Italian DJs were asked to make a remix.
And who better than DANIELE BALDELLI & DJ ROCCA ?
Italian Dance Wave hosts some of the heavyweight champions of italian electronic music scene: Bottin, Clap Rules, Delphi & Cécile, Francisco & Cosmo, Jolly Mare, Raiders Of The Lost Arps, Rodion, Studio Luce and many others in the forthcoming releases.
Disco Uno starts with “Luna Theme” by Raiders of the Lost Arps, a tough drumming mixed up with sweet synth melodies. A perfect start for our journey through these electronic music wonders.
House rhythms for Clap Rules between deep sounds, electronic disco and pulsating synth.
Italian disco master Bottin pushes on the accelerator and guide us into a fast ride into disco and acid highways.
The first chapter ends with “Valerie” by Studio Luce, classic 80s disco atmosphere with the right touch of italo’s feel.
So we start from where we left off, Francisco & Cosmo spread electronic beats with a very 80s disco attitude.
Rodion using vintage synth and vocoder bring us to the end of 70s, space is the place.
Slow down with Jolly Mare, it’s time to chill with a smooth track based on a soul/funk background where a stands a bodied bassline.
Delphi & Cécile with “Una Domenica Italiana” interthwine guitar and synth in a growing of velvety disco.
Can’t wait to hear “Disco Tre” and “Disco Quattro”.
Time To Play party comes back on friday february 20th @ X-So in Thiene.
♫♫♫ EVENT ♫♫♫
After the success of the first two events, this time Time To Play crew will host a talented new italian DJ: OKEE RU
Probably due to the fact that he was born in the year of the rise of Culture Club phenomenon, but it seems that, Okee Ru, in the course of his artistic training was able to catch the best of what was happening at that time between Chicago, Manchester and Detroit. Kidnapped by the sound of analog machines, Okee Ru started collecting vinyl since early adolescence, starting early to develop a taste and an aesthetic that have made possible to quickly establish itself the local music scene.
Thanks to his efforts in the studio, the qualitative leap takes place when he release his EP “Underground Communication” on Exprezoo Records (Underground Communication), followed by other releases on DEEPENDENCE, WILSON, ENTERBT, MUSCLE RECORDS with Die Roh and Lucretio. Now you need to stay connected, because the young boy is going to be produced by Chez Damier label “Balance Recordings”.
