“No Hard Copy – No Copycat”, a brand new Media Records EVO claim

Gianfranco Bortolotti, Media Records EVO CEO, has launched a tantalizing initiative on digitalization. The Italian businessman, with his international brands, is supporting bit flows, taking a step back from dominating trends: the release of vinyl records. The claim is “No Hard Copy – No Copycat”. Gianfranco Bortolotti is supporting the new technology, discouraging the use and distribution of physical supports and non-original song-writing. “At a time of relentless change, going back is not just a nostalgic attitude, it’s a myth that old school djs flaunts to secure their consoles”, said Gianfranco Bortolotti.

“It’s like old politicians saying that young people are not ready, because they don’t have any political experience and blah, blah, blah, and basically they just want to secure their power.
It’s just obvious that music flows digitally, that young people fit more with the new technology and that there are young talents”, added Gianfranco Bortolotti. “It’s just sheer madness if you say that vinyl records (we are not supporting vinyl records: No Hard Copies) will save music. The debate with arguments like “Digital sound is cold” and “Analogic sound is hot” is absolutely dull. This is just instrumental to keep things as they are, especially in Europe. Original contents are the actual point, this is what is becoming standardized. But I keep believing in young generations and in spite of myself, as I respect old generations, I also had a critical role in that. I believe young people are the future”.

There’s also another point to make (‘No Copycat’): “Today, vinyl records have a super-niche market for collectors, fans who are ready to pay any price, devotees, enthusiasts, and their common feature is the notion of an alternative based in the past. However, this passion may also result from a contemporary status in the current state of play. If you are tied to the past, it’s like being chained as you look at the future. Does it still make sense today? Yes, if young generations will not use new technologies to release heaps of useless tracks; instead, they should use platforms to acquire the skills they need, they must not try their luck producing brainless tracks, useless and recycled instrumental sample tracks”.

Lately, the focus has been on music hardware, i.e. music production (see old skool synthesizers), so what will happen next? There’s an overwhelming and utmost respect for anything historic or vintage, just like art, poetry, historical sites, anything basically. “Why not be inspired by the research that great artists of all times have performed to produce their works? Why should we not do as they did, i.e. acquiring the right skills in high profile academies and schools? In the past, great artists would travel for months to reach the location of art schools Now there’s Internet with appropriate locations to learn the art of production. Whether ancient or contemporary, anything standing the test of time results from a total – and unquestionably sacred – fusion with the spirit of the artist. In this sense, young people should learn from those who came before them”.

Firstplanet begins with the first goal

The super platform created by Gianfranco Bortolotti laeves the first track to a main label of Media Records Evo. The world of discography changes radically, now

Firstplanet really starts with big first result. The platform created by Gianfranco Bortolotti provides the first track to a main label of Media Records Evo. From this amazing stargate, which acts as a filter of the quality of the songs that come from all over the world DJs and producers, newcomers and professionals, has passed e promoted on upper level “Xpander”, the brand new international Ciro Parcheri, an artist that lives and works in Glasgow and specialized in trance music.

MAI (Music Advance Interface aka Music Artificial Intelligence), a Firstplanet automated system, thanks to its algorithm created by admixture by the ingenious act Filippo Lazzarini, has received, analyzed and forwarded the song in question to Neurals Records, the infamous dj trance label of A&R Mario Piu. That says: “Let’s talk about a vision and a very important goal, the future of dance music and not only: the track sent to me is really strong. This algorithm, managed and supported as said by artificial intelligence, will be our new weapon for the conquest of the market and for the search for new emerging talents”.

Gianfranco Bortolotti, Firstplanet stargate creator, supports and highlights the peculiarities of the entire platform: “In a changing world and in which we must get used to living with bot, AI and blockchain, this is the first step in the innovation needed to revolutionize. It is the strong and clear signal that we will no longer miss out on artificial intelligence (with obviously unavoidable possible consequences) that will help us manage complex operations and anticipate them the evolutions, and we are the first in the world to do this in music”.

Tarantula Music is born: the sound from the… bassement

From the Media Records Evo world a brand new label focused on the bass music: a 24/7 open lab

A Media Records Evo CEO Gianfranco Bortolotti explains the Tarantula Music birth and goals. Tarantula Music is a brand new label with the main target of the drum & bass movement and subgenres. “To keep a track of Media Records Evo’s positioning strategy in all segments of underground dance, we need a useful trademark for careful and disciplined search for new emerging trends across all the globe”.
Bite and poison are really effective in hitting the nerve of our body. Tarantula Music comes to spread the fever of bass music by listening to an endless and hypnotic dance music and born from the experience and selection of Media Records Evo stargate: Firstplanet.
The choice fell on Stefano Bosetti aka StefanoB, ’cause Gianfranco Bortolotti believes that he’s the best guy for spreading this sound. “It is the right man to hookup all such producers and also the most experienced promoter and festival organizer of the bass music scene”.
Many hip-hop and rap rap songs rule in bass music galaxy: the roots of most beatmakers are the same today: Tarantula Music will collaborate with Italo Music, a domestic branch of Media Records Evo. “The collaboration between A&R and producers of the various World of Media labels is a competitive advantage of our organization since the 1990s”.

StefanoB says, “I’m a dj, I started mixing in the late eighties when I was still a teenager: getting in touch with Media Records was something quite unique”. And today the dream is realized. “Tarantula Music is an idea born in 2015 and sees light only now. In Italy and in the rest of the world there are many real-world bass music, from jungle to drum & bass, but are often crumpled, unbolted. We need a new space to operate and promote different artists, both local and international”.
We will all soon “tarantulated”. “The thread leading dance to the origins of dance is the gathering, spasm and tribal rituals. The future of electronic music has so many pages to write and we will release with digital release and then maybe on vinyl so as to satisfy even the needs of maniac collectors. My task will be difficult: I listen on average over 150 promos a week and I will have no problems selecting the incoming proposals”.

StefanoB is a dj, producer and radio speaker in Brescia, Italy. He began mixing at the end of the eighties with acid house and techno trax going from funk and coming to evolve in the breakbeat scene that will give rise to jungle, drum & bass and finally the bass music. StefanoB has brought passion and expertise to the national movement and is also radio speaker for Radio Onda D’Urto (Brescia, Italy) and Future Sounds Radio (Bristol, UK). In addition to having experience in organizing various music events, he is also part of the Cockroach International Production’s cultural music association.
