introducing the debut 12” by miami duo sons of immigrants. for their first release on amam, the un_mute residents deliver a fresh melange between acid jazz, minimal and house. combining old school analog hip hop beats and samples with trippy vocals, raw percussions, deep chords and jazzy basslines, makes the trademark sound of soi.
befog takes con into a deeper underwater dimension with an outstanding remix.
180 gram, vinyl only.
alessio mereu joins andrea ferlin to create a brand-new duo: aleandro. the two sardinian artists have both been producing for a very long time, but this collaboration promises to deliver quality with 1921 ep.
the a-side kicks off with 19, a soothing track with a strong presence of modulated synths and pads, perfectly balanced with deep basses and kicks. its continual bassline only encourages the rest of the instruments to develop organically, making this one a very special journey throughout its length. the b-side 21 is more influenced by techno with heavier kicks and basses. the duo use trippy sonorities to catch people’s attention but beware: this track will even make your grandparents boogie!
mr. statik returns to amam with * a boy named crow*, a deeply personal release that draws its inspirations from murakamis beloved * kafka on the shore* novel. with it the greek producer further explores his favorite topics of sub consciousness & subliminal sensitivities in the form of 3 tracks that, although still aim at the dance floor, bear a strong sense of unconventionality via surreal sampling exercises, a healthy dose of surrealism and of course humor. complimenting the release xdb appears in precise remix duties, applying his particular skill set to transform clandestine into a late a.m. euphoric roller. mr. statiks * a boy named crow* ep is out on amam records on a vinyl only format .
in this ep, amam and alessio mereu proudly presents a 4-course dinner served on a heavy piece of wax. his unexpected return with gg ep comes with a little set of surprises, showing his long hours in the studio.
strong minimal trippin release by amam .. vinyl only 180gr!
introducing the end of autumn season, amam presents a vinyl only various artists release: shir ep. it includes four stunning tracks by great producers.
the turn of the new year means amam is about to reach its fifth anniversary - now with over sixty releases of some of the classiest house and techno produced in italy and around the world. were trying out some new things, and that includes starting 2015 with a shout-out to the old school: a vinyl-only split ep featuring two gems from our roster, dakpa and 000.
gaetano vinci a.k.a. hooved has been one of the most dependable producers on amam over the years, and more recently, his sound has mutated in some unexpected directions. thats why its high time to give our knob- twiddling satyr his own special catalog code from now on, and here we present amamhvd001, or for those of you who prefer titles instead of strings of letters and numbers, the timeless ep, his first 12inch of the year. the near-15-minute tmlss 1 begins with a 2-step beat, and as it unfolds, the beats only get more broken, causing a sense of auditory psychosis while somehow remaining calm, cool and collected.
VAPORIZER EP (LOWTEC / TOBIAS. REMIXES) (180G VINYL)
12" Vinyl, 180gr NL04.12.14
gathaspar has been making a name for himself based on his productions for labels like thema and freude am tanzen as well as his live sets (im not a dj) in some of berlins most respected spots like panorama bar and watergate. amam cant resist his detail-oriented grooves, either, so now were jumping in on the action, releasing the vaporizer ep.
mallorcas dakpa has been on a roll since amam released his debut ep last fall. he has contributed to several compilations, including amams own hand out series, kina music s fade to k pt. 3 and wizz vinyl s sonar sampler 2014, plus eps for labels like district raw and serial number 849. but amam gets the honor of issuing his first own vinyl release, the distres ep. the opening title track is an exercise in jacking minimalism, vibrant tech house with just the essentials, but more than enough to get the floor moving. then, ademus gets into a slightly more colorful groove, with tropical percussive interplay and some whooping voice for a humanistic accent (is that brigitte bardot?). on the flip, virgo gives a modern update to the frenzy of acid house. the title alone brings virgo four to mind. on that note, this one is an effective tool for warping minds and evoking spastic dance moves. finally, the dependable gaetano vinci a.k.a. hooved reinterprets ademus with a heavy dose of melodic funk and symphonic washes, making the track into an entirely new creation.

greek producers lee burton and mr. statik are already familiar to fans of groove-inducing, deep minimal house, creating intricately woven tracks that spark dancefloors and neurotransmitters in equal measure.
sardinian production wizard 000 is back with a wellseasoned plate of four minimal and tech-house tracks in the form of the borders of limbo ep. 000 joined the amam roster last summer with the finely tuned camels pace ep (amamextra018), which made quite a splash in the international club scene: ibiza voice praised its unexpected depth, while local suicide reviewed it as another brilliant release
qbeck first made a splash on the international tech-house scene when seth troxler and crew released his track alice on a visionquest label compilation last year. now alessio mereu is pleased to scoop up the ukrainian producer for a full ep on amam, titled railway mood. eureka has an irresistible galloping groove, with an off-kilter tick-tock giving a countdown to eternity. soon, after the slightly unnerving melodic plucking sounds, you can hear breathy gasps punctuating the atmosphere as if a human being is trapped inside the track. and maybe youll get sucked in too!
for the second part, frankfurts losoul (playhouse,logistic) takes the downbeat dub-techno-jazz of renatos underpool and turns it into an anthemic deep house number thats 12 minutes long and 20.000 leagues under the sea, yet full of bounce. finally, berlin-based brit ed davenport (counterchange) takes anymore and gives it an entirely different edge, a naval onslaught of crashing, jacking breakbeats, while sonar frequencies gently circle outward like the sirens call, rounding out the funkoholic remixes voyage.
FUNKOHOLIC REMIXES 1 (SASCHA DIVE, CHRISTOPHER RAU REMIX)
12" Vinyl D30.05.13
in march, tech-house veteran renato figoli made a welcome return with his first full-length in five years, funkoholic. now renato and amam founder (and fellow italian) alessio mereu have curated a remix package from four top producers to contextualize the deep, aquatic qualities of the originals: sascha dive, christopher rau, losoul and ed davenport. if the original album was set aboard an aircraft, this new double-ep takes place in a stealthy submarine.

in less than two years, sardinias alessio mereu has made quantum leaps in his dj/production career: after releasing an impressive string of eps for respected labels like contexterrior, tuning spork and cmyk, many top-name djs took notice, including dubfire and duke dumont (who picked some of mereus tracks for their respective cocoon and fabric mix cd compilations). in early 2010, he set up amam, which has quickly become one of the most popular techno/house imprints in italy, and as savvy dance music enthusiasts are catching on, throughout europe as a whole. earlier this year, his increasing international presence led to his debut berlin dj appearance at arena club to headline an amam label night…
london-based thomas feriero, aka avatism, didnt buy his first vinyl when he was ten years old, nor was he born out of the love of two underground jazz musicians. he had an extremely dull and standard childhood and can barely play the drums. yet somehow, he is able to formulate techhouse tracks that are classy and artful while remaining dancefloor-functional.
