the mushrooms project are well known for their sleazy mid-tempo laid-back percussive style, a sound that immediately resonated with rising stars and newly signed label mates earthboogie. specifically it was ‘dubby bolas’ from the italian duo’s 2016 album ‘rivea corymbosa’ album that really excited earthboogie and equally, the mushrooms were fans of the afro disco sound the londoners displayed on their debut track ‘route ten to interzone’. the mutual appreciation led to this remix project and now, released exclusively for record store day 2018, their complementary productions styles collide with great effect.

ltd 50% deal , last copies left ... italian production duo, mushrooms project, make their debut on jansen jardin with the wonderful >galattica<. releases for labels like under the shade and is it balearic? and remixes for the likes of tirk, lipservice and nang have introduced their blissed-out, mediterranean sound to fans around the world. galattica is 11 minutes and 45 seconds of high plains drifting, dream disco for late night drives and sunset sessions. a lush combination of euro disco arpeggios and west coast guitars spill out across a landscape of live percussion, bass and dub acrobatics. this is the soundtrack to a spaghetti western set in ibiza. a fistful of cervezas. the remix comes courtesy of the mighty chicago damn who has been responsible for some extraordinary music from his debut on mark es merc label to releases on claremont 56 and his own eponymous imprint. here he re-imagines the original track in the image of model 500, stripping away the music to a raw machine groove. dark, atmospheric and undeniably aimed at the floor.

hell yeah recordings are pleased to present a brand new 12inch by giorgio giri and marco lentano aka mushrooms project, a dj and production duo that has been turning out great 12inches and one full length since 2009 for labels like leng, is it balearic? uber.
uber bring the new mushrooms project ep. a slight diversion for uber into the cosmic afro infused musical stylings that the mushrooms boys are masters. madrugada s tribal energy is reminiscent of tony esposito or tullio de picopo. the italian afrobalearic groove that we at uber love so much. the big boobs is a slower more contemplative track, still holding onto the percussive feel but with hints of the east. i suspect the title is influenced by last summers trip to the great outdoors in birmingham. finally we come to the epic musical journey that is african obsession. continuing the fine italian tradition of tribal dance music this is a tight superbly produced trip into afrocosmiche. 15 minutes of hypnotic beauty. uber hitting the spot again.

mushrooms project are the kings of the mid tempo and they do deep, druggy, chunky, sometimes more balearic, sometimes just more freaky music better than anyone else. check! their approach is hallucinating and all encompassing and is made up of the analogue sounds of guitar, bass, synth and percussive layers to create a dirty but unique background. their new undergrass album is a melting pot of all their influences and is a straight up journey through the mesmerizing and unusual minds of the mushrooms. undergrass is released on gatefold double vinyl with a bonus 10 inch featuring remixes of 16823 by brennan green and mudd. brennan takes his mix into the electro boogie sounds of an 80s new york while mudd brings out the guitar, layering up his own production with equally devastating effect.
mushrooms project are giorgio giri and marco lentano who met back in 2003. their inspiration has come from the idjut boys and the mateo & matos duet. in 2008 the pair had their first production signed by london’s bear funk records. hortly after a new demo arrived at electric minds who were quick to snap up their latest ep for the label. >space mushrooms<, >wilkommen< and >special guest in the camping< are newly created tracks with live instruments throughout. the baleraric and techy sounds provide an original and new sound for the ever growing house / nu disco scene. as an added bonus to this package a remix from toby tobias ( rekids, tiny sticks ) has been commissioned. . check out the sounds for yourself !
we are very proud and happy to present the new reference from rotten city records. after the releases with original works from tronik youth, a jokers bizarre (jokers of the scene + club bizarre) and dj rocca, with great remixes from artists such as red axes, timothy j. fairplay, justin robertson or mr tc, now it’s the turn of the spanish trio cannibal ink.
its been a year or two since we featured a 12- single release from a new project. so hear at bearfunk we are really pleased to be releasing a cracker of a track. -gong bong-. it is from the caribbean house who are a new(ish) italian collective based around the core members of billy bogus & ferderico bologna. the original is one part slo-mo disco, one part psychedelic moondance and one part sci-fi horror movie. the track begins with swirling bass guitar and grinding synth before layering on a waft of sound effects and spooky keys. if the first two thirds of the track is a caterpillar then the last third is a butterfly as uplifting riffs and swirls of layered keys bring things to a crescendo. fellow italians the mushrooms project are up on remix duty first of all. they strip back the layers and concentrate on the growling bass and locked on pulsating synth. its back to the uk for the second remix where label honcho stevie kotey gets his percussion out for a drum, timpani and swing remix. stay tuned for more from the collective on bearfunk shortly.
new artist daniel wainwright brings his psychedelic vibrations to is it balearic? doing it is a slow motion sleazy trip into the acid house. swirling vocals and psyched out guitars melt into chuggy acid beats and effects. coyote up the tempo a touch and strip back the whole track on their remix. dubby vocal samples and muted guitar groove along to an acidic finale. the second remix is a real thing of beauty from mushrooms project. keeping the same slow tempo and adding space and texture with mellow guitars and extra sitar. a subtlely developing tribal workout. groovy man.
