James Priestley & Marco Antonio – Baia 2012 [SECRET004]


This release marks the beginning of a fruitful and exciting new partnership between secretsundaze’s James Priestley & Marco Spaventi. Secretsundaze fuses 128 BPM house and techno with elements of UK bass, while taking cues from Cajmere and Chicago. ‘Baia 2012’ refers to the late 70s Cosmic scene in and around Rimini, particularly Baia Degli Angeli where Daniele Baldelli was resident. At the time, a patchwork of styles was being presented in a wild but coherent way. This unusual and organic sounding offering is backed by a Fela Kuti percussion loop, a massive bassline from a Prophet 5 synthesizer, original drum machine work, vintage synths and varied jazz riff samples. An unexpected Larry Heard inspired breakdown and searing sax line steps it up a notch and takes the track to a whole new level. If the Baia scene were still in full swing, this production would be the perfect audio representation of its evolution.
