mnml ssgs mx23: natural/electronic.system.
ok, for those expecting kevin gorman, he should be next week. nevermind, kevin is going to have a very hard time matching what these boys came up with...
natural/electronic.system. are an italian duo i came across some time last year. it was a mix they did a few months ago (which i posted here) that really grabbed my attention. it had all the features that tend to appeal to me: careful track selection and a strong emphasis on flow, combined with the right BPMs. as soon as i contacted them asking to contribute, i knew i'd made the right call. still, when this mix arrived the other day i was completely blown away. this is on a completely different level to anything i've heard from them previously. what has particularly impressed me is the maturing over their sound. you can notice influences here (e.g. dozzy), but they are developing a very unique voice of their own.
combined with eric's contribution last week, this mix marks for us an important development in the series. a long standing aim of ours has not been necessarily to get the biggest names, but the right ones. as part of that, a specific goal we've had is building up the series so that we can use it as a forum for promoting up and coming artists who we believe are doing something special and have bright futures ahead. thanks to eric and natural/electronic.system. for delivering the goods and to our readers for trusting our judgement. anyway, enough from me, i'll let the boys introduce their mix:
natural/electronic.system. are antonio giova and valerio gomez de ayala, a dj/producers duo from a city that lies at the foot of the volcano vesuvius on the bay of napoli, italy.
the most important thing for us is not to be put in a category. we don't like to be labeled with a mark that describes our style. we're not just techno djs, or deep, or minimal house djs and so on.
the thing we like most is expressing our deeper feelings through the electronic music that influenced us in years and years of listening and research. it could sound like a commonplace, but it's just like this. nothing more.
our musical background was influenced at the beggining from the "old neapolitan school techno" and from a lot of different generes of techno, IDM, experimental, and electronic music from all the world. but over the years our attention was suddenly caught by the old and the modern sound coming from another italian city: rome. here we found special music and really special people. we want to just say "thank you" to them all. maybe we never do it before. :)
a big thanks also to all the mnml ssgs crew who have flattered us with some great feedback.
the mix "from napoli to rotterdam" is the reflection of our life situation right now. it's divided in two parts and is the result of our deeper and intimate feelings. a journey lasting over two hours of pure passion for electronic music.
