Originally released towards the end of 2019, Armonics synthetic dream album ’Nuovi Orizzonti’’ (translated: New Horizons) is now getting a refresh by Slow Motion’s most established artists. Slow Motion presents these six sophisticated remixes as: “Nuovi Orizzonti Reworks”. Remixes by Alessandro Parisi, Altieri, Daniel Monaco, Sauvage World and label heads Franz Scala and Fabrizio Mammarella.
Giorgio Records presents the first official reissue of the experimental project GAG, from 1983, which includes two very different songs. Flyin’ Bolero is spacey and hypnotic while P.T. Dance is lively, and perfect for disco nights. Unknown and obscure, these two tracks are cataloged as Italo Disco tracks but go further. As always, Giorgio Records enriches the reissue with two remixes. Flyin’ Bolero has been entrusted to Armonics, Bari producer and great artist. P.T. Dance to Kid Machine.
Bordello is back with a new compilation series: Diamonds In The Night. An homage to the hours of darkness (and the great composer who went by the name of Felli – R.I.P.). From ecstatic peak time dance floor action to erotic euphoria and its more edgy after hours just before dawn. For the first volume we’ve selected four fine diamonds by The Hacker and Voiron from France, Armonics from Italy and Discobeton from Bulgaria.
Following his debut 12” “Human”, Armonics teleports back to the Slow Motion mothership with his debut mini-album: Nuovi Orizzonti. Dreamy, lo-fi fuzz emanates from cassette tape and vintage circuit boards to synthetic travel music that will jettison you into outer space. Strap in. Tune out.
Dublin’s Modern Magic welcomes Bari’s Armonics for the label’s third release. A trained pianist and resident DJ/curator of the We Talk event series in his home city, Armonics draws influence from electronic music across the past 40 years: Chicago & acid house, italo- & electro-disco, new wave, synth-pop and vaporwave. His ‘Italowave’ style is a fusion of these retro-futuristic and cosmic styles, forged through Armonic’s production processes which include cassette recordings, vintage synths & modern Korg/Roland gear. Accompanying the EP’s three original tracks is an anthemic, piano-led remix of ‘Red Eye’ by International Feel act Black Spuma, aka Phillip Lauer and Fabrizio Mammarella.
Another debut producer joins the ranks of Slow Motion with a distinctive take on some classic sounds. Armonics hails from Bari, deep in the Italian south and his first EP is at turns blissful, jacking and dare we say, playful. For a first EP, Armonics has certainly nailed his musical colours to the mast. Crossing with ease between disco, Balearic and an indefinable X-factor.
