Artist : TVA & le visionnaire
Title : Forty Seven
Label : Soulfooled
Release : Out Now
Genre : Electronica
Soulfooled has established itself as a crucial platform for fresh talent, focused on sonic innovation that is unfailingly fresh and original, with its own distinctive brand of music, having been lovingly curated since its inception in 2010 by German producer Alex Niggemann, The label’s next exciting musical instalment is, once again, a creative collaboration of the highest order.
TVA consists of two very talented producers from Naples – Danilo Pascale and Marco Mollo – both now based in Sydney. They began making music together in 2007 under a different moniker (The Visual Attak), before developing their TVA guise in 2014, and are rapidly becoming respected on the underground for always creating intriguing, forward-thinking musical experiments. Their long distance creative collaborations with le visionnaire (a fellow Neapolitan now based in London) recently resulted in ‘Computer Lost’ (on the Paranoid Dancer label) and now they are set to release their superb debut on Soulfooled.
When DJs like Nick Warren, Sasha, Kristian from Ame and Kiki are paying this release compliments on a job well done, its fair to say I was more then a little intrigued by this two tracker. Lead track – Forty Seven is an opulent deep tech journey. Its strengths lie in its supreme use of synth washes and delicate but driving groove. Never too much and never descending into minimalism, its a well constructed and delightful aside from the onslaught of off beat bass heavy techno ‘bangers’ looming large in my inbox. Little Head has a much deeper vibe. Starting out with an inviting ambience the various layers that are added further augment its place in the annuals of Ibiza sunset glory. Truly beautiful.
