Idriss D – Lunatic (incl. Dj Sotofett Remix) [Memento]
Memento‘s label founder Idriss D returns to his playground with a mesmerising single titled “Lunatic” alongside Norwegian artist Dj Sotofett on remix duties. The material is available on Light Blue Marbled as well as Black Vinyl pressing while a digital release is also planned for the near future. The Italian label was founded in 2006 in the thick fog of the Pianura Padana area, between Mantua and Bologna which is worldwide famous not only for tortellini and parmesan but also for techno music and the deep style. Aside from the numerous albums and EPs delivered by Idriss D, we also find productions signed by Matteo Vanti, Danilo Vigorito, Enrico Gasperini, Danny Benedettini, Lee Van Dowski, Mirko Loko, Blue Mondays, Marco Effe and Lino Pugliese, among many many others.
Idriss D started his career as a DJ when he was very young, quickly establishing himself among the biggest names in the game thanks to his skills, his unique style and vision and to his hypnotic selections dropped in Italy’s nightclub circuit. Throughout time he enjoyed several residencies at well-known clubs like Cocoricò Riccione and Amnesia Milano while this travels took him to Berlin, Barcelona, Ibiza and Basel. He also manages the experimental label Aloe and DB Artists, where his work as an artist manager remains consistent and important for the international electronic music community.
The original “Lunatic” draws inspiration from early British jungle beats and adds eerie contemporary flavours that render this piece perfect for the dancefloor. The rattling drumming patterns elegantly mix with the warm background textures and effects while the exotic vocals smoothly help on creating a spacious breakdown. On the flipside, Dj Sotofett’s Double Cue Remix transforms the original mayhem into a late-night anthem where deep beats and driving arpeggios are in focus. The track provides energy with each variation, having a progressive narrative that incorporates several twisting sequences and frequencies.
The splendid picture on the release cover has been taken by Ismail Zaidy of L4artiste, which is also responsible for the astonishing video teaser, while the artwork has been as usual an graphic affair of Boogie.
