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.

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.

Luca Bacchetti – Robot Heart – Burning Man 2016

BM 2016 LUCA BACCHETTI

I knew what I was doing, I was going to Burning Man; but what I did not know was just how I’d assimilate and react to all the data, images, sounds, smells … what would become of my ex-asthmatic anxieties and the difficulties of living in this kind of environment: dust, dust, and more dust!!

In Black Rock City you’ll find all the good and all the evil of this world, the only thing that changes is how you take it in, because here the available tools of art and provocation operate differently … so why not the music too?

Whatever one may think, there is still a comfort zone in Black Rock City. It’s about attitude: it’s always with a given attitude that you do something to then obtain a determined result, break the routine, open up to something new, not appearance at all costs, just letting everything happen because it has to happen. Running the other way in a dark hostile but magical place like this with a voice that says, “I’m not afraid, I’m here now!” the same voice you hear when you’re sitting all alone in front of the pyramid of Cheope, its outline standing out majestically in the dark … far from comforting places.

I saw some friends collapse because, inevitably, if you let something get to you here that something will change you. I believe that these people will come away with a greater awareness. There is no magic to Burning Man: there are those who listen and those who continue to sit in their comfort zone, the same as those who from home point fingers with their two bit sarcasm.

The moment when the Man burns is certainly one of the most contemporary and modern tribal experiences I’ve ever witnessed, it’s like being at the centre of a big blockbuster; but where the characters are no longer Ben Hur or gladiators!

On the Monday 70,000 people left Black Rock City and on the ground there wasn’t even a crumb .. only the footprints of those who had been there, which the wind will take care to remove all traces of.
Thanks to everyone who made this experience so special. Thanks Jan, Anton, Amanda, Eduardo, Michelly, Tara, Chris, Reagan, Martinik, Susan, Rachel, Jonathan, Laura, Benjamin, Jason, Andrew, Ko, Behrouz, Eugenia, all the people with whom I had a conversation, and of course Brian Eno and Peter Gabriel! Danila, Rita and all my family.

My set at Robot Heart is dedicated to Pierluca Rossi, you too were in Black Rock City.
