Deep / Tech House
September 16, 2013
Superfiction present Episode #04 and open their doors to a brand new artist for the very first time. Having caught the attention of label bosses The Italoboyz & Blind Minded, with his dry, raw and stripped back techno, fellow countryman Giacomo Trevi has been invited to showcase his latest work on the label. Giacomo's tracks are built upon simple yet devastating grooves. Weighty and throbbing piano chords form a pearlescent spine in both 'Run' and 'Rising', with the lead track driven by a wave of brutal, thumping drums. Rising keeps the elements to a minimum again with its bubbling drums working in tandem with the keys to create a sinister warehouse vibe. The warm dry funk of Trevi lent itself perfectly to allowing the label to bring in one of their favourite producers on remix duty. Fully living up to his own philosophy of 'the non-resisting groove that has to be pumping', Germany's Jens Zimmermann reworks Run into a relentless techno monster that bleeds analogue throughout... Marco Faraone and production partner Piegaja turn in a more contemporary rework of Run tat sees their groove locked tight by their rasping snare. Floating their vocals, the pair smooth out the original piano riff which adds a touch of Detroit to their sound. Superfiction round out the release with 'Wedding'.
