Flavio Folco – Boiler Room Napoli DJ Set [10th December 2k15]


Honoring the roots and wires of Detroits’ 909 and 303 sounds, Flavio Folco blends elements of hip-hop, electro, breakbeat techno, futuristic soul and funk music committed to the edge of post-acid house styles. An audio injection into the body-mind as we wave through the polyrhythmic ensemble of molecular beats and crisscrossed percussive patterns.

Here you can listen Flavio Folco bringing mad electro vibes for the opener on Boiler Room Napoli, 10th December 2015.

Simple Symmetry – Xxx002 [XXX02]

Having initially made their name as off-kilter disco producers, Simple Symmetry first ventured into the world of melodious deep house with last year’s Near East Confusion on Low Budget Family. Here the Russian duo delivers the second EP on Holland’s XXX label, unveiling a trio of new cuts. They begin with the curious but entertaining Italo disco-deep house fusion of “Chemical Wedding Of Christian Rosenkreutz” before moving into deeper, more tactile territory with the Steve Hillage guitars, dreamy chords and chugging grooves of “Best Ice Cream In Guwahati”. The latter is remixed by Public Possession’s Marvin & Guy, who emphasize the track’s sleazier elements. Arguably best of all, though, is “Whip Me In The Saloon”, which sounds like a cracking tribute to mid-80s Chicago house with added piano solos.

Dorisburg – Irrbloss [HVN034]

Since we discovered him ve years ago, Alexander Berg has been one of our favorite producers. Under his Dorisburg alias, he’s built one of the most consistent iscographies in contemporary club music. Yet, his debut in Hivern is one of his most captivating releases to date.Irrbloss features nearly an hour of Dorisburg new music. Eight cuts in which Berg unleashes several incarnations of his sound and delves into his most melodic and mystical facet. Tracks such as Irrbloss and Votiv exude a highly spiritual feeling, connecting the profundity of archaic myths with state of the art electronic production. Gloson and Gripen, in contrast, are much more danceoor oriented eorts, showing Berg’s most cerebral and somber side. Kassiopeia and Cirkla are two slices of sinuous techno that demonstrate once again Berg’s ability to blend evocative landscapes with club eciency. Finally, Insvept and Sagofabrik conde a more meditative and adventurous approach. In other words: a gripping journey with a kind of inspirational energy not easily found in today’s dance music.The double EP’s artwork is by American painter Jeanette Mundt, with design by Arnau Pi.
