REPEATER: “A few months ago I wrote a piece for DJ Mag Italia, focusing on what has quickly become a major phenomenon in the world of underground dance music: Italy, the land of Discoteca Cosmic and Daniele Baldelli, the cradle of the so-called “afro” movement, is producing some of the most exciting, groovy and creative music around – You call it nu-disco, call it cosmic disco, call it slow-motion acid house or call it whatever you like, but I call it a fact -

As a next step of sorts, I thought it could have been quite useful to add music to the picture, so I did a mix – More intended as a showcase than as a proper mix, actually, just to let people know how on fire this whole thing really is, and has been in the past couple of years or so -

Here’s “RADUNO”, then – Just original tracks, no edits, no remixes by, no remixes for, nothing – Just italian artists (Golden Bug isn’t, but Rodion and Lavinia Claws are so that’s 2-1 for Italy and the amazing “Washing Machine” is in!), each one with the track that I either think represents them best, or I think IS their best – You can consider it a “best of” then, but mixed – With the hits and the hidden gems – With the big names, the upcoming ones, the outsiders – And me: the mix closes with a track I released in 2008, I just listened to it again after quite a while and found it fits here quite well – But by no means “RADUNO” has every italian nu-disco/cosmic producer deserving attention: there’s plenty more, and there will be even more qhen I’ll get around to make a second volume, maybe -”
