praterei´s back with their program for may, bringing pure underground delight!
I.F.M. ( Marcello Napoletano & Francesco Schito )
hail from Salento in Italy and have been exciting us with their very unique take on house in the past years. Marcello teams up with long term friend Francesco Schito aka Fran Mela to deliver their version of jazzed out chicago house, strictly made in italy. Marcello Napoletano has been regularly releasing on the number one chicago imprint "mathematics", dropped tunes on Laid, Hour House is Your Rush and Yore, guess we don´t need to go any further. Marcello & Franceso released some highly anticipated records as IFM on labels such as uzuri, quintessentials or bosconi records, where their latest release "renegade roots" dropped this february.
Analogue Cops (Lucretio & Marieu)
The Berlin/Italo based label RESTORATION is an anti-digital media corporation, who fully believes which the only useful ammunitions for djs are VINYLS. The artists releasing on the labels are the founders Marieu and Lucretio, both solo and as the Analogue Cops, Eduardo de la Calle and Third Side - the group formed by Lucretio, Marieu and Steffi. Until now the label has released 12 Ep strongly played and supported by legendary Detroit artists, by most of the Berghain/Panorama residents and by many respected artists around the world. RESTORATION has gained a strong reputation as one of the last true Underground labels in the world. Its work avoids trends and fashions and aims to a canon and a tradition of Pure Soulful Techno music. Techno comes from House music, and the boundaries between genres are only categories. When music is an expression of the soul, it´s simply timeless. The analogue sound never lies, it´s the perfect symbiosis between men and machines.
Their visit is supported by Christian Moritz aka Moritz. - who´s the man behind decks at berlin´s finest recordstore/distributor „Diamonds & Pearls“, and helping out with the bookings for the „homopatik“ nights @ berlins up n cummer "about blank".
