LOVE LETTERS FROM SICILY (REPRESS / STANDARD LABEL COVER)
12" Vinyl D08.10.19
it was nearly a year ago when these two graced with their hugely successful track ‘hope’ on our ‘watergate xv’ various artist compilation. matthias meyer and ryan davis come together again to deliver the stunning ‘love letters from sicily’ where infectious organic grooves pave the way for a flourishing well of emotions in the form of lush pads and shimmering sonics that unfold into a tale of epic cinematic proportions. from start to finish it’s a intimate piece of aural imagery, yet the duo always keep a keen percussive focus making it ideal for any dancefloor moment. to complement ‘love letters from sicily’, we’ve enlisted the one and only john digweed to rework meyer and davis’ original of ‘hope’, and with no surprise, he’s given it the master’s touch. staying true to the original, while at the same time reinventing the storyline and constructing tension by saving the powerful harmonies for a later climax, he’s crafted a revision that’s both driving and timeless.
félix dulac and nils are previously known for their infamous ghost club & most wanted party. seven years ago, they met with fsk24, a notorious artist from the 90’s, who quickly became one of their closest friend. they slowly started to produce music together in his studio, which finally led them to start a record label.
the gfd label is back with its 7th vinyl, revealing stories from the mythology of the underground sound on a primo va compilation! included in the box: deep jams cooked in berlin by sece & max alban. a groove-infused, first-time collaboration between funk e & guy from downstairs. an undeniable, trouble-making bassline trademark of floog. and, not the least, a gracious closing of the va with a cosmical trip by direkt.
luca bacchetti s debut album >secret world< is a work almost 15 years in the making. it s also one that required the endlessly touring dj to traverse the world numerous times before an inner call came to return home to italy to record it. having earned a reputation for crafting club cuts, a fact underlined by releases on the world s most recognisable labels, from wagon repair, ovum, mule musiq, all day i dream and crosstown rebels to defected and his own endless imprint, it s a radical sonic departure. but it s one that reflects both his homecoming and the journey to get there. >with this, i entered a new world i’ve never shown before,< he says.
