in February we have the pleasure of presenting Special set of: Gescu b2b Piticu (Sunrise) and Mihai Amatti b2b Alex Baciu (SoundCrossing Rec.) who bring us their new releases in Soundcrossing Recrods: "Silence EP "..... can´t miss!
Is one of the relatively new arrivals in the local electronic set, enlisted in the Sunrise Booking Agency at the end of 2007. Since then, most of the notable clubs in Bucharest had him as a guest and he mixed among all the mates in the 'family', from Kozo to El Cezere and Praslea to Dan Andrei.
He scored Valentino Kanzyani , [a:rpia:r], Tania Vulcano and Cassy as a warm-up guest and after Sunwaves 7, where he was spotted at the deck on Sunday, Gescu played it tough and on the 15th of May, he was spinning at Arma 17, in Moscow, in the opening of Marco Carola and Loco Dice.
What he plays at home explains his clubbing pathway, Ricardo Villalobos, Thomas Melchior, Baby Ford, Zip and [a:rpia:r] being listed as favorites. Currently he's working on a release, soon to be announced on the agency's site. With a good start and an ascending range, Gescu promises, no doubt.
PITICU ( Sunrise)
Born and raised in the beautiful Bucharest, he comes to the dj booth with an individual way of phrasing the sounds of minimal, house and techno. In 1999 takes the decision to get involved in the scene and he stays low as a bedroom dj.Truly skilled and with a trained ear, he comes into the light as piticu that we all know today.
His receptivity to knowledge got him to the point where he is dedicating time to compose and to produce his own music. Soon we will be able to obtain the releases and to enjoy them as he would be next to us playing.
Once out of the bedroom, the wings opened and he joined Sunrise team.
MIHAI AMATTI (SoundCrossing Records)
Mihai Ionescu was born in Buzau, on May 29, 1977. Later, Mihai Ionescu becomes Mihai Amatti replacing his family name with another one with historical and musical significance, after Andreea Amati the Italian who invented the violin with four strings. Living in a family passionate about music, Mihai received the music with open arms through his father, rock music being the genre where he found himself in the adolescence, a genre that has remained dear to the present.
He surprises his listeners with old musical genres alternating with new fragments, from ecstasy state of mind to deep one’s, bringing in his mixes the old school spirit and some sophistication.
In a special way Mihai is inspired by the mountains, and the person who influenced the most is his father whom he greatly appreciates.
ALEX BACIU (SoundCrossing Records)
Is a likely young dj for the sounds of minimal-tech-house, newcomer ALEX from Bacau, Romania has quickly made a name for himself with his music. Take a listen to him, and you'll find that his original hometown has obviously had a great effect on his sound. Taking the hypnotic qualities of techno and adding the swing of classic house. Alex fell in love with electronic music in the lately '90s whilst clubbing at Zebra (Bacau) and Session (Bucharest) party’s, and it was his experiences there that convinced him to start his own career as dj. “I fell in love with house music , hearing Junior Vasquez, Danny Tenaglia and Raresh” says Alex. Stepping behind the decks and into the studios was a natural progression for one so dedicated to the cause, and success will swiftly follow. ..
