Pushmaster Discs and Mattia Trani are proud to present the remixes for the Italian producer’s last album “Scenery”.
Mattia invited his favourite producers of the past and present to create their own vision of his music.
The remix album is due 30 June and will be released on vinyl, split in 3 parts, and digital.
Up first are Detroit legend Robert Hood and pioneer Luke Slater as Planetary Assault Systems. Both remixed “One More Step”, leading the minimalistic tool into more percussive realms. Ken Ishii, Mattia’s favourite producer from the 90s, reworked “Scenery” adding timeless Japanese futuristic atmospheres to the track. Marcel Dettmann delivered a, for him, unusual 122bpm deep house banger through his version of “Videogame” which features vocals by Theo Nasa.
On the second 12”, the best hard-techno producers and djs of the moment Alignment, Indira Paganotto and Lee Ann Roberts, gave “Biologic Horror”, “End of Days” and “No Future” a 2023 treatment. Paul Ritch and Luigi Madonna complete the line up with their old school acid versions.
Finally, the third vinyl sees Mattia’s close friend Fedele remix “Scenery” into a melodic hit. Wrapping things up are K91, Matgroove and Gianma Bln, all upcoming artists from Italy and students at Mattia’s music academy. Each of them tackled “Endless Optimism” but whilst K91 explored breaks, Matgroove took a deeper route and Gianma Bln played with razor sharp arrangements.
The production level of these guys is intense but, on the other hand, the care of the sounds they release is at the level of those who do things because they want to and with the time they really need. Hence, these are productions that when you get closer to them you get trapped by the halo that comes off: rare, singular and, here comes the best, powerful, magnetic and danceable. Beats that mark but without burdening us, an oldschool (authentic) touch, somewhat eccentric synthesizers and a rather cheerful and festive general tone, are some of the adjectives that we can get up our sleeves if we want to describe this innovative proposal.
