Etruria beat podcast series is coming!
1 Artist, 1 hour mix, every week!
For the first release of the new year , Etruria Beat´s prodigy Dast is back with a four tracker ep Pangea.
2015 was crazy for the Italian producer his Deep Down track (also on Etruria Beat ) was all over the place , played by the main cats and licenced by Papa Sven himself for his Sound of The Fifteenth Season on his Cocoon imprint.
This first encounter with the Frankfurt label led to the release of Paranormal Effect which was also big success.
But now is the time to come back home!
This new record starts with the title track Pangea, we can directly recognize Dast signature of shuffle drums and catchy synth lines , dreamy pads and strong melodies.
Next is Luca Agnelli’s rework, Etruria label owner chose to keep most of the synthesizer parts and lay down a strong techno beat under them a subtile mix of rough and soft.
The B side start with Panthalassa that is synonym of “Party”, involving, melodic, in complete Dast style.
The ep close with French Clio (already seen on Adam Beyer´s Drumcode) that is giving a relecture to Panthalassa
with a massive kick and base in “Techno Frequencies” style.
After Bastinov ´s solid release, Etruria continues his aim to promote new italian talents . Now it’s time for Tuscany ´s duo Reform , who you could already find on our last Bud Sampler .
This 25th release features 4 tracks, incredibly different from each other, like the Ep title says , they create a true path through interesting electronic sounds.
First track, “The Clear Path”, a killer dancefloor tune, which combines great, grooved drums underlaying a strong bassline topped by two powerful and melodic synths . The first one is riffing the main melody and the other one, brings a magic touch to the ensemble .
following is Marco Effe’s remix . The Berlin based producer gives its own special touch , with incredible reverbered drums, an arpeggiated synth based on the original, but completely reworked. A real trip, that first takes the audience thru a mental abstraction , then rudely back to the dancefloor with a punchy techno kick / bass marriage .
We continue our journey thru sound with the third track : a second remix , this time from German producer Raphael Dincsoy . Energy , Dancefloor Hypnotic , monophonic sounds are some of the adjective to characterize this third track .
“The Agreement” is closing the release : a cut up game of voices, played alternately towards a huge “moog style” synth which appears after the first drop and evolves till the track ends .
This is Reform, and this is how they want to express their sonic and music path, soaked into analog machines and vinyl sound , explosive and energetic .
It is already release number 24 for Luca Agnelli´s Etruria Beat , what a long and exciting journey thru sounds . Along the way , the label had the chance to discover a few new talents and help develop them . Amongst them , Venezia resident Bastinov . For his second release with ETB , the young italian producer offers 4 amazing tracks : The ep starts with Prisma , a strong tune with a huge analogue synth repeating itself over a swing 909 beat , until a dreamy pad hits the break to release some more action . This tune will be featured on Sven Vath´s Sound of the Season 16 on Cocoon ) . B2 sees Andre Kronert , the man behind so many labels ( most of them are a secret )on the remix duty of the title song . Andre chose to reinterpret the original in a very minimal way : an hypnotic chord , delays , a very strong Basic Channel influentced beat with a pad coming and going .
The flip side starts with Sphere : a solid tune based on a ring Modulator synth sounds thru tape delays floating over a very energetic groove disturbed by strong claps and effects . To end this story ,
Bastinov delivers Triangle which has a very techno flavour from the beginning . The beat is heavy , the kick is delayed , the hat is strong . After a few minutes a Detroit influenced chord develops and gives the tune a unexpected twist , the forefathers of techno are in the place . The music keeps on evolving with some classic strings and effects . A very strong release again for Etruria Beat thanks to our very own Bastinov !!
For its twenty third release Luca Agnelli´s Etruria Beat presents a new V/A, Bud Sampler 3. With tracks from the label finding strong support from the likes of Sven Väth, Truncate, Adam Beyer, Ryan Elliot, Luke Slater, Scuba and many more, Etruria Beat has also been receiving a number of tracks that were simply too good to let go. As such, we’ve grouped a new selection together for you.
First up we welcome the (almost) newcomer Diego Amura. After releasing a strong Ep for Arts he arrives at Etruria with his powerful track ‘Nightfail’, powered by a heavy, distorted kick and a dark vocal. ‘Flip That Back’ is delivered by Avotre’s mastermind Santé, showing his true underground persona with an obscure vocal that will blow your mind.
Tania Vulcano teams up with Audiohell and Jose De Divina to present, in true DC10’ style, ‘Rebound’, a track that is already set to feature on DJ Magazine’s Ibiza covermount Mix, before the mysterious new duo Reform drop ‘We Want It’, a no nonsense heads-down techno stomp of the finest order. Last but by no means least we have Anders Hellberg with ‘Back to Earth’, a track that shows the promising Berlin-based artist is one to watch out for.
Etruria Beat welcome again the berlinian Dj Oliver Deutschmann!
He was already featured on the label with his remix of Dast’s Architect.
Now he offers two original tracks with a defined and aggressive sound, backed by two huge remixes from Etruria label boss Luca Agnelli and from french Techno stalwart Electric Rescue.
Get ready to blow up some dance floors with those 4 hard hitting monsters.
The EP opens with Agnelli’s remix of “Resist”, this track is a muscular and stomping. He catches the originals mood and transforms it into a spectacular version that will leave the dance floor in ashes. BIG! The original version of “Resist” it’s a funky and driving technostomper with house chords that creates an obsessive and powerful rhythm, accompanied with a hypnotic vocal saying “Resist” in 132bpm!
The B side continues with the original version of “Hope” which got a melody in the best Detroit tradition and powerful 808 drums. A stripped dark atmosphere ensure a breathless pace, to the final second.
Finally, Electric Rescue morphs this one into a powerful loopy journey, A synth hellfire as it’s best.
All of them are already Berghain approved and rocked countless other floors.
Don’t be stupid, buy that shit!!!
