5 Italian Techno DJs Owners Of A Special Sound
First of all we must say that the Italian techno scene is getting bigger and stronger all the time.
There are a few reasons for this: the country is rich in producers, there are many interesting and underground techno festivals in places such as Sardinia or Turin, while Milan is home to some amazing projects and clubs.
Seems like if ever a place in Europe had the potential to be the future capital of techno, it’s Italy.
But just in case you weren’t aware of what Italy has got to offer, join us as we take a look at the top 5 Italian techno DJ’s you need to know about!
Luigi Tozzi is a bit of a hotshot Italian techno DJ who burst onto the scene two years ago. Since then, he’s been prolific in his output.
Always ready to experiment, and never afraid to think outside the box, Tozzi claims to love attention to detail and is inspired by the Rome techno scene of the early nineties.
In early September, he will be playing at the Paralel Festival in Barcelona Province, and you can catch his vinyl sets on his SoundCloud profile.
Ness has been around a lot longer than most other Italian techno Djs on this list. He began to introduce himself into the exciting world of electronic at the end of the nineties and in 2007 he produced his first album. Over the next few years, he developed his own unique style that combined hypnotic vibes with plenty of atmosphere.
Ness makes impressive live sets, and this is the way he defines his style.
He also runs an independent platform and label called The Gods Planet alongside Claudio PRC.
In addition, he is going to release on TGP a solo EP full of magic sounds to catch senses, on 19th September.
This italian artist is based in South Italy. So it probably comes as little surprise to learn that his techno comes with a lot of attitude.
Preferring a “less is more” approach, Alfredo Mazzilli is economical with his use of beats and offers a unique brand of techno and mentalism.
Has been especially relevant his performance at Portugal’s Neopop Festival earlier this month. Furthermore, his latest release “Invisible Entity” is available since July. You can check his music out and make your own opinion.
Antonio Ruscito was born in the right place at the right time – Rome circa the period when the Rome techno scene was at its peak in the early nineties.
But as well as being inspired by his countrymen, Antonio Ruscito names the likes of Aphex Twin and Ritchie Hawtin among his influences.
His podcast for Container , which you can find on his soundcloud, is dominated by mystic, ethereal vibes that are tempered by acid influences.
His latest EP, Uncertain Future Forms, continues his experimentation with atmosphere. The end result is an EP that is rich in sublime sounds that both relax and excite the senses.
From our list of Italian techno Djs, Shkedul has the most incisive style. He incorporates industrial elements into his techno, without ignoring the immersive sounds.
He doesn’t hide the fact that he lives and breathes techno. His music is urban, glitchy but always sonically pleasing.
Currently the artist is working on some upcoming releases and recording amazing podcasts.
