Released OCT 29, 2012
This four-track release brings together an interesting spread of artists snapped up to deliver remixes of their favourite Third Ear cuts from the back catalogue. Red Rack‘em leads the charge by taking on Ibex’s “Spiritual War”, while XDB rebuilds Benjamin Brunn’s “No Kicks” from the ground up, followed by Lorca coming out of a newer breed among the remixers invited to the release. And last but not least, courtesy of the Upperground Orchestra outfit fronted by Rabih Beaini, better known as Morphosis, who was already planning a live interpretation of Theo Parrish’s classic “Falling Up” before Third Ear even approached him.
Marco Sartorelli (aka Marco Shuttle aka DJ Shuttle) was born in Treviso, near Venice (Italy) in 1975. Since he was 15 he has been involved in the local underground club scene, in the beginning as a promoter and then making his way as a dj. He’s played alongside artists like Portable, Mike Shannon, Alex Under, Oliver Hacke, Daniel Bell, Bruno Pronsato, Dapayk, Gustavo Lamas, Cassy. His production has a deep atmospheric and tribally hypnotic textures and often mixes organic percussive elements with dry electronic sounds with subtle melodies.
This young DJ, just barely 20 years old, also from Italy, in a small city called Varese, near Milan has been producing his own music as well as Djing for underground parties, most recently opening for Praslea. His sounds are deep and intelligent, which doesn’t fail in his latest release off the Plus Beat label. Check it out.
