exclusive premiere: Giacomo Pellegrino – Aurora [Insectorama]
Leipzig-based imprint Insectorama presents its first vinyl pressing with Italian artist Giacomo Pellegrino at the controls alongside label head Markus Masuhr on remix duties. Titled “Northern Lights”, the material delivers four fresh and immersive dub techno tracks inspired by the breath-taking landscapes of Iceland, as captured by Denis Marold whose photo for the artwork evokes the vastness of space and serenity. The lathe cut transparent 2mm 12″ arrives in a limited number of copies, with a natural outer cover protective PE sleeve, 30×30 cm print on 350g high-quality matt paper, stamped and numbered by hand with love.
Founded in 2006 as a netlabel, Insectorama focuses on eclectic electronic music like dub techno, deep techno and ambient, having an extended catalogue with more than 100 releases that feature a lot of talented artists worldwide, such as Radoslaw Kobus, Altone, The Open Circle, Substak, Erich Schall, Heavenchord, Sven Laux, Laura Palmer, Jens Lewandowski, Spiral Dub, Giriu Dvasios and Sraunus, to name just a few. Giacomo Pellegrino‘s inauguration of the vinyl series represents a new chapter, one that will bring forward deep and hypnotic sounds for the people.
“With this vinyl I want to tell the story of the cold winter of Iceland. When I make music I’m always inspired by something, my life stories and also the places on this planet. I love doing this because music can take us anywhere. Just close your eyes. The vinyl is already finished, but there is also a digital version that you can buy on Bandcamp. It also includes a remix by Markus Masuhr, the owner of this beautiful label. He was impressed by my sound and this gives me the strength to continue producing music.“Giacomo Pellegrino
Elegantly crafted with ethereal and organic elements, the album delivers a mesmerising dub-infused sonic journey that brings to life the specific scenery of Iceland. Just like an adventurer drawn by a unique territory, Giacomo dives deep into spacious chords and techno rhythms, carefully calibrated in order to capture spacious and inspiring soundscapes. The remix from Markus completes the material with style. Highly recommended for collectors, selectors and dub techno enthusiasts alike!
