6470 – No Mercy EP


6470 >> “No Mercy EP”

“No Mercy EP” is a brand new amazing project from 6470, a very techno and electronic music lover

Shadow and light together are a common sight. He’s 6470. It’s existence cast from the shadows of gifted producer Davide Piras mind. A new identity, not determined to express something artistically unusual, but as a personal platform to improve and investigate any possibilities of post-techno and experimental electronic music.

The concept 6470 is the latest addiction to the irresistible oblivion on the brink of house and techno. 6470’s sound is the result of a visceral approach from both genres furthest ends: distorted and radioactive soundscapes locked in a dance-floor lovely structure.

And 6470 is never final, taking shape day by day, evolving constantly, exploring and braving the regular. Noise crafted consciously as the sediment of long jam sessions and heavy electronic manipulations.

How do you think the sound could evolve and be played during big live events?

Is there an artist that inspires you or that you particularly admire?
“Mike Dehnert, Kris Wadsworth, Yaleesa Hall, Stimming, Ricardo Villalobos”.

When was your first studio experience?

Media Records >> Underground > End To End…


Media Records >> Underground > End To End

Underground defines a large set of practices and identities with the common intent to be an alternative to the mass culture. End to End with the help of the mithic Media Records wants to be the answer.

End to End, a pseudonym of an expert dj and producer that in the recent past have worked with several labels.
They weren’t structured like Media Records but most of all they weren’t as wised as Underground, the most open label of the group.
At this is point the question is: if Heartbeat is house, BXR is techno,

Divergent is minimal techno, what will be the core sound of Underground?
“Electronic music. Even experimental electronic music. If possible a sound that still doesn’t exist, a sound that can be the fusion of different cultures. Those considered not ordinary countries for the traditional dance music business: for instance India, Turkey, China, maybe mixed by Italians remixers of course, or Europeans influencers, in any case, always the sound of the underground”.

How did you get to Bortolotti and Media Records?
“Since the beginning I followed Media Records and Gianfranco then, almost by chance, we met and we started talking about using. And there was the light. I understood why the called him guru”.

What’s your main commitment as to label manager of Underground?
“Mainly searching, listening, judging the tracks. Keep the label profile shining in order to attract new talents from anywhere”.

Will you bet on one-shot operations?
“Only if the one I pick is adding value to us or to the group. Mainly my commitment will be to grow artists, djs or producers”.

Next releases?
“Soon we will release an EP, an Indian dj where I made a remix of the main track”.

An EP of yours?
“I am working on it. Meanwhile a couple of my remixes will be released on UMM and on Underground for the artists Ten Words and Askat Joshi”.

Underground always been… underground, more a lab than a label: is it stimulating for you?
“Actually, what’s better?”.

DVRG1001 – Bimas – Fragile EP…

DVRG1001 – Bimas – Fragile EP

Divergent is the hotly anticipated new label from Belgium born DJ and producer Bimas, who also releases music on labels like Desolat and Truesoul.

‘Feeling Good’ opens this EP with a wild-style techno aesthetic, featuring hulking great drums, wailing diva vocals and nerve jangling stabs.

It’s energetic and fiery and cannot fail to arrest the attention of the dance floor. ‘Fragile’ is deep and rolling, with big glistening hi hats and a deep looping bass sucking you into the the track. Building to a high octane peak, rueful synths add a tender touch to the visceral drums.

Nikola Gala’s remix of ‘Feeling Good’ is a tense and rolling affair, with no let up from start to finish, as cut up vocals and drilling synths demand you move your body.

The men behind T.B. Project …

The men behind T.B. Project are Andrea Paladini and BJM known for few years as the True Beat

Enthusiastic about to give their contribution to the Media Records rooster, reveal that T.B. Project has been properly done for the clubs supporting a very specific and refined sound. A way to go behiond their own limits also thanks to their large djing experience. And here we’re, they reached their goal with “Maka Movin” (out next 8th August 2016), an obsessive tech-house sound enriched by tribal arrangements, with a feminine vocal hook leading the entire track.

And now the powerful couple landed on the dark side of the Moon of Heartbeat Records: Heartbeat Black. From their recording studio the duo reveals that the first production was realized with DJ Luca Cassani for “Safe From Harm” track.

In the past Media Records it has certainly given great music at all.

“Not only has been exporting products and DJs worldwide. Now we hope to make our contribution with this new partnership”.

The T.B. Project is just a… side project?

“In the past we have already released products like True Beat. T.B. Project will be a relief to the dancefloor, with sounds too house and deep. With this name we will give more voice yo new fields through our experience”.

You don’t have limits to your sound?

“The inspirations are important”.

“It shows must go on: that we must dare more. Those who continue to do research immersing the new styles, new mood, or more than anything call into question the sound, he wins. we must not rest on success”.

Only a series of outputs may build a profile of a big artist?

“With a very demanding audience you can not work in a standardized manner or think in the old style, to make follow-up nonsense. Today you have to dare, experiment, always keeping an eye on the taste of those who still listen to music”.

Everything is evolving?

“We believe only in what we do and as long as the thing we have fun, we will continue. There are no specific targets in progress but only the desire to contribute to the success, bringing something catchy and good in the current music market”.

Your inspirations come from?

“From rock, pop, dance, techno”.
