die roh are the legendary dj octopus (enlightened wax/hypercolour) and the mighty sagat (boss of noho records). for the fourth release of muscle records they have hosted in the brenta studios a southern talented musician known as okee ru (enetrbt/ deependence). the fruit of their occasional encounters are 3 craggy dancefloor cuts of disco infected technoid shuffled 808 beats and quirky samples, together they have blended old-school uncouthness with modern lechery. their dissolute country fellow lucretio (restoration/machines state) has delivered a methane-fuelled remix of -non è la rai-, adding illicit 90s happiness to the original beats. a remix that could easily cross-refer to his hard-to-find tunes on warm sounds.
vvaa including tracks by lucretio, steve murphy and dj octopus, chevel, caio and madí grein. 5 tracks of gritty house music by the members of the riviera project, showcasing the suburban sound that has been flourishing from the muddy banks of the brenta river. all the tracks have been arranged, mixed and produced with outdated agricultular machinery. mastered by frank merritt at the carvery, london
muscle records is a label for upfront dirty dance music. all tracks are conceived naturally and recorded on tape, so an elemental and honest approach is required to fully dive into muscle records sounds. riviera is a band formed by a bunch of young talented gritty analogue junkies, most of which has already released on a couple of disrespected labels. the band first jams were recorded on parching tape in a sultry warehoue close to the brentas muddy banks with a noisy dockyard of transistors delights. muscle records is to pride to present this piece of melting techno beats. the strictly limited (300 copies) sr11 e.p. has already got enthusiast feedbacks by blawan, steffi, pariah, rivet, cosmin trg, marcel dettmann, the analogue cops, alex picone, ben ufo.
