2017 has already been a very exciting year for rising Dutch DJ/Producer Alessandro Diga, with the release of his ‘Figments Of My Imagination’ debut artist album on Paul Hazendonk’s forward-thinking Manual Music label. Showcasing Alessandro’s exquisitely dynamic, deeply melodic, stylistically diverse attitude, one of the album’s highlight tracks, ‘Standing On My Feet’, is now set for release with a superb remix by German duo Danito & Athina, and a bonus brand new track, ‘Panic Mode’.
Alessandro’s vivid musical imagination is in full flow throughout ‘Standing On My Feet’, as the track’s energetic, swarming intensity builds to a melodious crescendo. A master of intense emotional beauty, his music neatly blurs those restrictive genre boundaries that truly great electronic music so often does so well. If you haven’t checked Alessandro’s supremely creative ‘Figments Of My Imagination’ electronic extravaganza yet, this track is a perfect introduction.
Cologne is a city with a rich electronic heritage and with one of the Techno scene’s finest – Danito (Cocoon, Suara, Moon Harbour) – joining forces with the soulfully inspired Athina, to form a charismatic creative partnership, the future is looking very bright indeed. Together, they’ve released numerous gems on the likes of Stil Vor Talent, Crossfrontier Audio, Eklektisch, Jeudi and Click, and their interpretation of ‘Standing On My Feet’ is a hypnotic masterpiece that weaves a decidedly delicious, hip-swinging groove with distinctive elements of the original, in an all-enveloping cloak of seductive goodness.
Not one to rest on his creative laurels, Alessandro is already at work new musical projects, and ‘Panic Mode’ is the first preview of what is to come from this young artist, who undoubtedly has a very exciting musical future ahead of him. For Alessandro, music is all about emotions, and here he is in a celebratory mood, marrying his seriously funked-up techno attitude with masterful strokes of intense beauty, resulting in yet another shimmering rush of his trademark joyous melody rich style.
