12" Vinyl IT30.11.16
newcomer label substrato features dorian gray on its third release. gray. aka moreno mariotti. is an italian-based artist whose music culls from a broad range of influences that rest somewhere between surrealism and sci-fi. this third installation is a canvas of obscure atmospheres and hypnagogic patterns. the textures of which play to the label’s orientation towards the acoustics that embody subterranean and submerged worlds.
the 2nd release on allessandro stefanio’s substrato. true to the label’s concept. is another musical exploration of both atmospheric heights and geological solidity. with all the emotional resonance and physical impact that such an exploration implies. this new ep from buck. like the substrato debut fluid identity by limo. is a skillful sonic meditation on the natural living environments that we often take for granted: its mix of intense tectonic beats and ambient winds takes us from the archaic mystery of the underground to the rapture of the open skies above.
out-er reaches its seventeenth release welcoming back buck – also known as alessandro stefanio. label manager of transition lab – experienced dj and producer who has been actively contributing to the birth of out-er since the first brainstormings almost five years ago. nuove sessioni features three atmospheric techno tracks plus an additional remix from ed davenport. offering the only remix as inland out in 2015.
the fourth installment in the legwork records saga sees label heads lance desardi & leopold come together under the artist moniker legwork. for their first outing under the name they start with buck shot. a techno-soul chugger featuring a remix by the futurist himself. matrixxman. on the flip. the boys go in for a straight-ahead killer with mean 2 me and a more musical version of the same tune. key 2 me.
we are proud to present our next vinyl. the release 004 will open the doors to the limited series called lab series. the first lab series is made up of four tracks. two produced by parassela on side a (the duo of blawan and the analogue cops). and the b-‐.side from limo and buck.
launching after the seminal tambacounda ep clap! clap! drops 2 works carved from the same tree as the soon to come long player. buck is a customary quick-step drum workout where the world both modern and ancient collides to create an explosive oldworld sci-fi b-boy stomper. on the flip ichnusa is a more dreamy psyched out acid voyage across the planes.
to remain a discerning platform for underground artists with integrity is easier said than done in todays music market. alphahouse vows never to forget its roots in the afterhours basements from whence it came. in that spirit. we would like to welcome two up-and-coming italians to the family with release number twenty. good friends alessandro stefanio aka buck. and andrea santoro aka santorini. both from puglia. proudly represent the new school of deep thinking producers from a country not generally known for such restraint. if you have been following santorini or bucks output of late. you will know that italy is more than just the land of shuffled techno.. there is a deeper music movement in the country. and these guys are two of the best.
danilo schneider and the hypnotic sound of his production pour mes amis is brouqades opener for the summer and comes with full support of tim xavier. butane. timo maas ... the elegant housy sound of >lecole< signals a post-winter. head-totoe thaw. with hook-lines and snatches of vocals glinting thru smart beats like the fi rst rays of spring. the buck remix is likewise summer-bound. catapulting shimmering fi ll-ins and a straight bass that are right on target! >sabliere< steps up with a clear beat. wakes up a bass-line and pushes ahead with percussion at its fl anks while horns and vocals swell. and fill-ins try with all their might to tame the rampant groove! yet steady and undeterred. the song keeps its eyes on the mainline: to shiver the speakers and hold the dancefloor hostage
