following on from his debut ep on drumcode earlier this year, ilario alicante returns. for the past few years ilario alicante has enjoyed something of an unintentional ibiza kinship with adam beyer. when the swede played his special annual sets on the amnesia terrace for cocoon, for three years out of four, the italian has been right there playing alongside him, ensuring his talents were on the radar of the drumcode chief. ilario made his first appearance on the label in 2016 with the stirring temporary featuring on a-sides vol.4, before securing his first full-length release with the awakened ep that dropped earlier this year. figures & echoes deepens his contribution to the label with half a dozen powerful cuts. figure of ra opens the ep, combining a rousing vocal loop, pulsating beats and effective melodic interlude to fantastic effect. the acid runner follows and is true to its name, characterised by echoing vocal effects that lead to a piercing 303-line that hits with peak-time power. virgos echoes features a persistent synth line that combining effectively with lush layers of melody to create an atmospheric impact. third eye delivers an exhilarating dose of rave thanks to the hypnotizing riff that runs throughout.

ilario alicante might well be best known for his previous releases on big room labels cocoon and cecille but preconceptions can be misleading. here on sudden drop we plough a deeper furrow, not ones for hands up in the air shenanigans we prefer to get our heads down on the dancefloor for some serious introspection, which is why this 3 tracker from the italian born ilario finds its way onto our label. echotechno is indeed a main room slice of stomping techno but with that oh so important moody vibe that we crave here at sd,rouge dub on the flip delves deeper with an exceedingly trippy soundscape whilst untitled drop rounds things off with a spritely techno groove.
continuing its string of stellar releases, alphahouse welcomes ilario alicante to the family, with the versatile 4-track ep, aptly titled xxx. the young phenom from livorno, italy just 23 years young, has once again shown why his music appears on the worlds top electronic music labels such as cocoon and cecille. there is something for every discerning taste here, from warehouse rave cuts to thick, slow-grooving afterhours jams, united by a provacative, mature thread running throughout.
the eighth edition of cocoon recordings 10inch series leads us to berlin, where martin müller and daniel stroeter are working under the alias youandme as djs, label managers and producers for labels such as rotary cocktail, 2020vision and compost for more than 15 years now. >raw” is the ultimate soundtrack for the very special acoustic comprehension both musicians have in setting an absolute imperative on the dancefloor by constantly rising noise levels, but without ever neglecting the funk. living in berlin for only a short time, 23-year-old ilario alicante from tuscany / italy has made his appearance by releasing records for cécille, break new soil or sci+tec over the last three years, especially >vacaciones en chile< was an essential part of the club summer 2008. >balance< purifies modern house music down to its essences, using a 2-minute break with a central organ theme to keep your synapses tightly clenched before a massive bass kick unlocks the tension. just a perfect acoustic devotement to the balance of the raw.
early support by nic fanciulli, deetron, 2000 and one, shinedoe, dubfire, mauro picotto, boris werner, karotte, lauhaus and many more!... ilario alicante put his name on the map two years ago with his breakthrough hit >living near africa< on cecille, that was played by literally every big dj on the planet and from then on gained a lot of respect with high quality productions on tenax, sci+tec or blabla.
now we are very happy to bring to you his latest creation for break new soil: the title track >streamvision< kicks off with a subtle melody, easy-going at first but then growing stronger and stronger to finally explode in the breakdown – we can already see this one setting dancefloors on fire from rome to tokyo! on the flipside ilario shows a new side of his production – with >origami< he sets free a chicago-inspired monster groove that certainly will tear the roofs off the clubs its played in to finally let the summer in!
>in deep tubes< is the title of the debut on thirtyonetwenty from italian wonderkid ilario alicante. ilario took the danceworld by storm when he released the amazing >vaccaciones en chile<. since then he s followed up with releases on sci-tech & cecille. in deep tubes bears all the hallmarks of a future ilario classic. mysterious muted distant trumpet calling out over deep rolling bassline, manic vocal cut ups and a massive infectious groove. barcelonas lover is ilarios tribute to the spanish cities alure and charm. ilario has blended a phat dancefloor groove with a deep sensual jazz melody thats pure sax baby !
