Slow Motion Pres // Retro Futuro

Casey (Pearl Flash)
Fabrizio Mammarella (Slow Motion, Bear Funk)
Rome's latest Techno Electro star-in-the-making describes his sound as "dance, analog, 80's and dirty." Though Warp was his first love and Dopplereffekt's Gerald Donald his favourite producer, we clearly hear the influence of Roman colleagues Marco Passarani, Francisco and Raiders of the Lost Arp, meaning they must have shared a few pizzas together, or at least one very tasty carbonara. Using Ableton Live (what else?), his live set will have your feet jacking and your cellulite wobbled away by wiggling Moog phatty basslines, analog synth stabs and Techno Funk from the future.
“ I get excited by people who take a risk with their work and have some kind of vision. I
love a lot of different stuff and like to sit between contrasting places and feelings. Its the
tension between these things that keeps things interesting.”
JR Seaton grew up primarily in London. He has also spent portions of his life in
Glasgow, Andalucia and Berlin, where he currently lives. He writes music and djs. He
is interested in the spaces between ideas and understandings. Currently he is signed to
Relish Recordings, and he does the A+R for Nocturnes, a label he helped to found in
2009. He is one half of Call Super with Matt Waites. Along with Milo Smee, he runs the
irregular Berlin party NUKK NUKK.
His debut album is due on Relish in 2011.
