Berlin based trio ItaloJohnson like to keep themselves to themselves. Despite this, the raw analogue music they have released on their own eponymous label has won them many fans in recent times. And it's easy to see why, because it bulges with charm be it a loopy techno banger, bouncy house cut or something more cerebral, exclusively released on vinyl 12" and 10"s. As DJ's their ears are as well attuned as they are in the booths of the most respected clubs in the world, where the three of them excel at lacing together pumping, dancefloor wrecking DJ sets over extended periods of time that lean on the best that house and techno has to offer.
ONCRET is an art & music project founded and directed by Italo-Mexican musician, DJ, and artist Diego Angelico Escobar, produced together with Italian sound designer and keyboardist Q-pha. The project was born when the two began working together in 2012 on material for Diego’s urban soundscapes art project, which was presented in New York City’s 3rd Ward Gallery. From that point on, they decided to start producing club tracks with a unique and very personal approach. Their sound mixes house beats with dark Spanish vocals, techno atmospheres with disco synths, and deep bass sounds with ethnic percussions. Concret’s debut album, Play the City #0, came out on Truth Underground Records (Los Angeles) in 2013. After releasing Concreta/mente EP in 2014 on In Textures Music (Mexico City), they spent the remainder of the year focused on remixing for various Mexican musical acts. In the summer of 2015, Concret released new material on House of Hustle (Belgium) and on Toy Tonics (Germany), a sublabel of the renowned Gomma Records. London-based label Nein Records released their latest work, First of All EP in 2016. Concret has collaborated with a wide variety of artists including: Cubenx, Ali X (Azari & III), Métrika, Pepe Acebal, Soni Ceron, Luca C & Brigante (Hot Creations), Vito & Druzzi (The Rapture), DJ Rocca (Slow Motion), Tippy Toes (DFA), Sharam Jay (Bunny Tiger), Mijo (Correspondant), Capri, Andre VII, Tronik Youth, Aimes, and many more. Furthermore, Concret is also part of the Mayan Warrior Artist Collective, performing for them at Burning Man and beyond.
