our man at the controls for this journey into the depths of electronic music is alland byallo, a los angeles-born producer who really hit his stride while living in san franscisco. it was there where he became one of the team behind the west coast citys legendary kontrol parties, along with sammy d from pillow talk, greg bird, nikola baytala, and craig kuna. the seminal events gained all promoters worldwide notoriety and helped alland to evolve his style. he is currently residing in berlin where, of course, he has really found himself musically so consider this new ep a cocktail of west coast usa meets berlin. a product of allands melting pot upbringing, yet oh-so-cohesive and built for dancefloor workouts, as proven by his outings on labels such as liebe*detail, poker flat, dirt crew and now real tone records.
geno is happy to welcome alland byallo into our family. alland has been gaining strong momentum by already releasing for several labels including poker flat, liebe*detail, and missive. alland is also know for his monthly, techno focused nightclub event kontrol based in san fransisco. alland has also played several international events such as detroits demf movement festival, tokyos la fabrique, brazils d-edge, munichs harry klein, and berlins panoramabar, watergate, bar 25, cookies, and tresor.the >turn you up< ep is a truly versatile ep. the title song, >turn you up<, is a future classic in the making. modern organic percussion, trippy pulsating pads, and subtle organs grow into a sampledelic house gem. the flip side, >blessing box<, is a deeper tech house exploration. atmospheric tones and cathedral reverbs moan and wash your ears into submission. just let go.
nr 1 in martin landsky dj top 10 (august 2012) ... alland byallo weaves together elements of disco, techno, deep house with flashes of acid to form this unique hybrid record. clearly a very personal record meant for the discerning djs dj, made by the bad animal label owner himself. as for who supports the record? lets just say we dont drop names, we change the game.
alland byallo gained global attention producing for definitive labels like poker flat and liebedetail, hosting san francisco s legendary kontrol party and performing at world-famous venues like berlin s panoramabar and watergate, and detroit s annual demf, byallo looks forward to showcasing his more private side through bad animal, expect more organic productions, vocals and raw emotion.
the label s intimate feel is realized in the title track of its inaugural release, >thirsty eyes< an evocative song about a pained, passive aggressive young woman who is oblivious of her own condition. built upon a sinister bass line and raw, soul-drenched vocal, this lo-fi tune builds to an eerie yet frenzied crescendo then explodes into a percussive workout perfect for peak time. remixes from the wildly in-demand techno trio dop. dop drops a spacey, acid-laced, psychedelic monster. finally >open windows< byallo s other original piece, pays homage to the past with a look towards the future, this bass-heavy techno/house tune opens with an old-school build-up then chugs along accented by an ethereal vocal and energetic stabs designed to get the dance floor moving.
if you have been exposed to this cultural phenomenon called electronic music for more than a while, you will certainly have in mind something more than bright sunsets and perfect waves when you evocate that part of our awesome planet called california. the west coast has provided an own-harvested sound that strives to differ itself from surrounding mainstream conditions, making it fine and classy when it comes to underground house and techno music. alland byallo aint no rookie on the issue, rolling beats for enough years now to need no intruduction. with productions on labels like dirt crew, liebe detail, dirty bird, poker flat or nightlight music (allands own imprint) he can be well considered like the last but one exponent of a whole lineage of californian producers.
hailing from the free swinging hills of san francisco, established dj and producer alland byallo has created his own unique sound out of a love for deep, soulful house combined with more edgy techno moments. from his own successful nightlight label he has released a quality catalogue including his debut artist album last year. of course it was only a matter of time until his talents were noticed by poker flat boss steve bug, and the results are this briliant 2 tracker, which also marks alland‘s arrival in his new home of berlin. welcome to town mr byallo! ‚discovaries‘ has a healthy amount of berlin‘s reduced techno affinity rooted within its phasing, growing p-funk waves. tense, moody and of course drenched with attention to detail, this is a grower in the true poker flat style. the sunken, murkier undertones of ‚shipwrecked‘ begin as a darker moment in techno, however gradually unfold and surface into a shining, tripped out afterhours anthem.
a los angeles native now residing in san francisco, russian-blooded alland byallo has broken into the house scene with his own unique blend of tech funk. alland s taste, coupled with his research and digging, always instills an undeniable groove and tickles the chin-scratching trainspotting senses - as on his much acclaimed >buckets< on liebe/detail or his remix for claude von stroke s dirtybird. the current >dark tide disco< is a superb rolling club track which keeps a deep feel! turn to the flip for the dapayk remix offering more reduced beats and sounds. more floppy funkers to come.
alland byallo has crafted ten unique tracks for the mighty uk imprint. bones, flesh stands out for its distinctive vibe and groove. from the opening track looking long to the closing singularity the album stirs and flexes, flies and touches down with elan, sounding raw, alive, organic and original all though. all the while being a record that moves the mind and the body from start to finish
the diversity of the material here is unique as hidden ensures every inch of the techno spectrum is covered from deep, late night insanity to vintage detroit analog electronics for the rare release these days that is broad and well rounded. featuring remixes from franklin de costa (trapez), andrea ferlin (sleep is commercial), alland byallo (pokerflat/liebe detail) and andrew grant (barraca music).
