Daniele Baldelli & DJ Rocca
Master Balearic and Elettronica Meccanica founder delivers a two pronged Balearic quirker with DJ Rocca.
Next up on Real Balearic we pay homage to one of the few DJs who can claim to be one of the founders of the eclectic Balearic sound. Take a trip back to the 70s and 80s in Northern Italy and you will fine Daniele Baldelli mixing up electronic, African and slo-mo disco records to co-create the Elettronica Meccanica sub genre. Records often would be played at the wrong or variable speed to be made to fit into a wide aural tapestry of his unexpected-but-seamlessly-flowing DJ sets. This of course is an aesthetic close to us here at Real Balearic. A sound we are ever so pleased to have as part of the mixing pot for our new Balearic label.
The new track "Pongo" made with Italain co-producer DJ Rocca comes in two flavours. First up is the "Extra Balearic Remix". The Kalimba is out in full force as are the lethargic grooves and lazy bass guitar. Stabby synth and quirky counter melodies round off sound with just enough quirkiness to succeed.
The "Afro" mix completes the package. Here we nudge the tempo and groove slightly. Adding in layers of offbeat afro beat rhythm, shakers and early evening floor groove.
Please feel free to play these at whatever tempo or speed you see fit. RB out.
Written and Produced by Daniele Baldelli and Luca Roccatagliati.
