intro by Jelena Drenjakovic

Italian DJ, producer and Endless record label head Luca Bacchetti has built a huge reputation on the strength of his production. His sonic soundscape oscillates between entrancing electronica and techno fully aligned by a particularly strong sense of melody and ambience. Apart from spreading his signature twists and musical turns through myriad productions and remixes, the past few years have seen the Italian rack up plenty of frequent flyer points, playing shows across the globe. Ahead of his upcoming gig at The Brooklyn Mirage and Burning Man, Luca Bacchetti gives us a taste of his broad sonic scenery with 5 EPs that traverse beautiful realms of sound whilst being hard to pin down to exact genre markers.

MAX LODERBAUER – BRIGHTBIRD REMIXES

Max Loderbauer is back to lend his unique interpretive skills to the master recordings for the Brightbird album by João Paulo Esteves da Silva, Mário Franco and Samuel Rohrer. Loderbauer’s role as electronics operator in the similarly attuned Ambiq trio has already shown that, through his mastery of tone color, he has a talent for teasing out the additional hidden details within an apparently ‘complete’ sonic environment. It’s a task he manages to accomplish without ever overriding or contradicting the cohesive message provided by his collaborators.

Luca Bacchetti’s guide to the Apulia region

Italy is without a doubt one of the most picturesque countries in Europe.

Known for its delicious food and wine, rich history and huge culture, the Mediterranean country attracts more than 15 million tourist per month in the summer.

Though there’s more to Italy than gastronomy and history. The country’s nature is equally impressive – from the Alps in the northern region of Tyrol to the the lush vineyards of Tuscany in the heart of the country, going all the way to the breathtaking islands of Sicily and Sardinia in the south.

Aside from Rome, Naples and Sicily, the south of the country is also famous for being home to the sun-kissed region of Apulia.

Also known as Puglia, this region boasts the longest mainland coastline in the country, bordering the Adriatic Sea, the Ionian Sea, and the Strait of Otranto and Gulf of Taranto. Apulia is also famous for its olives, with the region’s up to 60 million olive trees generating as much as 40% of the country’s olive oil output.

Nature and food aside, Apulia offers some of the most incredible beaches in the country. With Salento, Gallipoli, Vieste and Polignano a Mare all nested in the region, it’s no wonder Apulia plays host to some of the best sunsets you can see in Italy.

This August, Apulia will also host the Italian edition of international music festival Corona Sunsets. The Italian episode of the international outdoor festival will be headlined by Israeli house stalwart Guy Gerber, South African house hero Culoe de Song and French live maestro Rodriguez Jr. and London-based DJ and producer Kidnap.

In addition, Corona Sunsets Italy will also see performances by Amsterdam-based melodic house DJ Miss Melera and local hero Luca Bacchetti.

Just a couple of weeks before his performance at the festival, Luca has compiled a special guide to Apulia, which will help festival-goers experience the magic of the region to the fullest.

Places to visit

Alberobello, which literally means beautiful tree is a small town in Apulia. The town is famous for its unique trullo (plural: trulli) buildings – a traditional Apulian dry stone hut with a conical roof. The trulli of Alberobello have been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996.

Polignano a Mare, located on the Adriatic Sea, is a town of Greek origins. It overlooks the Adriatic sea, standing on a steep rocky cliff cut by a deep gorge. Because of the karst nature of the cliff, there is a number of caves that were inhabited by the prehistoric men. Among these marine caves the Palazzese grotta, is the most enchanting one and is an absolute must-see.

The gorgeous port of Porto Bianco, located just on the edges of Polignano A Mare, is a perfect location to shoot all your lovely Insta-worthy shots of the town and the crystal clear waters of the sea.

The beautiful Castro is imbued with history and legends. It is perched on a precipitous cliff, overlooking the Adriatic Sea, 48 km away from Lecce and, stretching towards the sea, it becomes a marina awarded the Blue Flag.

Down below, Castro Marina comes alive in the summer months, with bars, restaurants and cafés opening up along the seafront. The little harbour, usually home only to the town’s small fishing fleet, welcomes impressive yachts and pleasure boats. A majestic opening in a sheer sea cliff near Castro welcomes you to the Zinzulusa Cave, one of Salento’s most impressive karstic phenomena.

As soon as we began tracking Davis on our radar, we were immediately struck by the range of talent and taste that distinguishes him as a DJ and producer. The head of In Their Feelings alongside good friend Zopelar and the driving force behind of one of Sao Paulo’s hottest parties, ODD, Davis now surprises all as he docks on ENDLESS with his ‘Watu’ Ep, exhibiting an all too rare versatility as he reprograms his fusion of world music and electronica with maniacal attention to detail.

Watu and Forbidden provide the deepest and most melodic moments from the EP, while Yuma delves into darker waters, as a true techno masterpiece, with which Davis reaches the highest peak of tension and deservedly earns space in the peak time searches.

As might be expected, Luca Bacchetti captures the listeners attention with a remix distinguished by percussive elements within an arrangement characterised by repeated changes of scene: just as the record appears to draw to a close, it surprises us again with another killer break.
