Discodromo get in a Pickle

The Italians from Berlin – Discodromo:  hit East London this weekend, holding court for new business at hot E2 spot The Pickle Factory.

 

The Crucial & Fresh boys have kindly dug into their not insubstantial boxes and come up with 5 tracks that are doing the business for them this winter..

1. Instant House – Awade (Joe’s Jungle Sounds Dub)

Joaquin “Joe” Claussell was a totally new one for us this year. This record is a great way to open a set. Who doesn’t love the sound of a rain stick? It possesses that tribal / shamanistic aesthetic we’ve been hunting for in our tracks this year. Couple that with the sound of a sax solo and some wooshing sounds and you might as well not play anything else ever again. More of the same over on Joe Claussell’s ‘Sacred Rhythms Music’. Shouts to DJ Dreamcatcher, on what ever spiritual plane he currently resides on .

2. Michal Turtle – Astral Decoy

This brilliant record fulfills all those cosmic cravings. Its part of a wonderful series of 12’s released on the fantastic, Music from Memory label, which releases records from way back when. This was originally recorded in 1980’s by a young Michal Turtle in his parents living room, but still sounds so relevant today. Fumix played this on our radio show a while back and we’ve been hooked ever since.

3. Pan Solo – Jungle Falls

Our close friend Ben Mansfield runs the fantastic Cosmic Pint Glass record label, and this little beauty is out very soon on the new ep. Hot Tropics. We have been lucky enough to have access to this track for a few months now, and it never disappoints. It’s maybe a bit weird, which is probably why we like it. The pan pipes stay strong throughout and hold it all together very nicely, and the results are always the same, a general chorus of heads asking “who on earth is this?”, fantastic stuff.

4. José Roboter – Amazonia

This is a weird one. We have a penchant for anything rain forest related at the moment so we searched ‘Amazonian house’ on google. This wee number popped up and that was it, love at first sight / listen. It sounds wet, like a rainforest. I cant seem to find out much about Jose Roboter other than he hasn’t got many soundcloud followers and that he was “born in the 70s from the unexpected love between a famous spanish flamenco dancer and a tattooed Berliner w*nker.” His output is high and if you like raw gear driven house then check him out.

5. Jack Pattern – Blackout

This is a winner every time. 100% builder and gets the floor lit! This one never leaves the bag and it’s usually a race between the two of us as to who plays it first. We also love any record that has dolphins on it. The ‘Another Language’ ep it features on has a nice Ruf Dug rework on it as well. Keep your eye out for the Swiss based Jack Pattern boys, we love their work and are expecting great things from them in the future.

The Pool at ADE

Along with the rest of the club music fraternity (or so it seems), we’ll be in Amsterdam this week. Some great shows going on, and we might even take a meeting as well!  So if you want to have a chat, drop Matt or Rob a note/call/carrier pigeon.

and the important stuff…

COS/MES – Remix Package

The latest Sadistic offering from the kings of tweaked new age sensibilities Cos/Mes provides a wonderful showcase for the talents of not one but two of the Pool’s acts.

Discodromo pick up a six pack from base and go out in a disco sludge fest across the Viet Cong in their Black Voodoo rework of ‘Iron Deck’. Soft Rocks, in polar contrast, zone out in front of the shopping channel with a pack of Xanax and a C90 blaring with some lost Baldelli mixtape in a tender, cosmic and balletic reshaping of ‘Ramp’ by the Brighton boys.

Both essential listening, with the added bonus of the angular funk of Cos/Mes’s own ‘Build the Band’, yes that one from the Robert Johnson mix, backing things up.

New Roster addition – DISCODROMO

We’re delighted to welcome DISCODROMO to the Pool family. The Italian duo from Berlin are already making waves across Europe with their distinctive sound and expect to see a lot more of them in 2013.

The lads have provided us with an exclusive mix for you to enjoy, so check out below on our Soundcloud.

DJ/production duo Discodromo named themselves after the Italian word for the circular runway of UFOs as used in 1970s sci-fi films.

Independent of one another, Giacomo Garavelloni and Giovanni Turco spent time in nightclubs though the 90s where they gained a deep understanding of house and techno. It was only a matter of time before they crossed paths, at which point they immediately realized they were in love, with music! Their combined passion and knowledge of myriad musical mutations was the perfect basis of their new DJ partnership. By 2008, the duo relocated to Berlin, and their stylistically diverse sets have led to bookings in a wide array of clubs: the infamous Panorama Bar in Berlin, Rex in Paris, Cielo in New York, ageHa in Tokyo and Sónar festival in Barcelona, to name a few.

Giacomo and Giovanni’s newfound surroundings also inspired them to start producing their own music together, which led to their debut 12” single “Cosmorama” on Internasjonal, the label owned by Prins Thomas (who also provided a remix of the track, later included on Optimo’s lauded Fabric52 mix CD). Since then they released 2 other records with Internasjonal and more productions and remixes on a variety of other labels like BPitch Control, Dissident and of course their own CockTail d’Amore Music.

In 2009 Discodromo teamed up with Berghain resident DJ Boris to create CockTail d’Amore, a monthly party that’s become a fixture in Berlin’s gay scene and in 2011 the boys have expanded the venture into a record label as well. Most recently, CockTail d’Amore happens regularly also at Lux in Lisbon.
