"2 Sessioni Fuori,Una in Casa e Qualcosa da Chiederti" is another 'one track mix', full of 60's/70's Psychedelic Rock from many parts of this World (stuff from Peru, Belgium, Chile, Russia, Portugal, Italy etc.) some obscure, some not. You'll find some Pokora titles mixed up with post-rock tracks (or indie as you prefer to call it) from the end of the 90's/beginning of 2000 and some more recent stuff like OBO (Oshinoko Bunker Orchestra) or Pavel Dovgal.
Anyway everything is "handmade", it means hands on vinyl & live mixing, totally uncut stuff, this is the meaning of the title track "2 Sessions Outside, One@Home and Something to Ask..."
Nasty Art Cover by my man Pupa "Psicodelico" Tee

Here's another killer release from Colossius!!!
His second release for 2010 "No Doubt Fare Night" is a 5 track EP, a prelude to the forthcoming album and another example of Colossius' unique style: 13 minutes of pure, warm, analog, crunchy medicine for your ears.
Striclty instrumental and for those who love fat warm basslines and punchy drums... just like our peeps at Lo-Vibes Records (jp).
The crazy thing about this EP is how Colossius is able to stay within that thin line that separates subtleness from pure strenth giving the widest possible forms of listening....wether you're rockin' with Paolo VI on your headphones or dodging some Donoratic Asteroids while testing out your subwoofers..!..
Straight from the guts...in your face, No Doubt...Fare Night!!
"No Doubt Fare Night" (2010)
released by Lo-Vibes Records [LVDD-002] (www.lo-vibes.com)
all songs produced and mixed by Colossius
mastered by Tommaso Bianchi and KK
artwork by Pupa Tee

There was a time when the DJ was the collector and the dispenser of acoustical knowledge through the arts of selection and the fine techniques of mixing.... those who distinguished themselves were completely committed ... and always ON point!! ......
This would be true if people like Biga didn't make you realize that there still are many dj's out there that do their homework and have the tendency to deliver..!..
Here we post Biga's 3 last mixtapes that..., straight up and down, you do not want to miss!!
All 3 mixtapes are a fine example of mixing and selection, like a ride that keeps bringing you somewhere new without knowing how you got there.
"El Climatico" features some of Biga's favorite tracks going from salsa to hip hop, to soul and some of those everlasting jazzy-funk tracks that make you wanna thank people like Biga for collecting records. It features tracks from Hector Lavoe, Krs-One, Parliament, Augustus Pablo and Madlib....just to give an idea...
In the words of Biga: "This is 'El Climatico' recorded and mixed by Biga in August 2007. The wonderful art cover is by Mateo Rivano. Many thanks to Bubu, Igor and Joao for the contribution in making it."
While "El Climatico" is more like a "Manifesto" of Biga's Dj-ing in the past years, "Som Barato" and "Bombe Turche" are the result of international DIGGIN'. A real record collector will travel to find his records and to understand what that particular music is all about. Getting down with the people that particular music was made for is the best way to understand a particular groove and that's exactly what Biga has done.
"Som Barato" is a mix of some crazy brazilian tunes that go deep into Brazil's musical culture bypassing the well known Verve bossa nova's to reach the samba, the ballads... the people's choice: a "Cheap Sound"! Needless to say there's nothing cheap about it, besides the fact that you get to download for FREE!!!
As for "El Climatico" the insane artwork is by Mateo Rivano!
"Nar Suyu Portakal Suyu a.k.a. Bombe Turche" ("Turkish Bombs") brings us to the proud country of Turkey. The turkish musical industry is huge and Biga has here selected Strictly 7"s of Turkish Funk, Folk and Psychedelic Breaks.
A little somethin' for those that have heard everything.. ;)
This mixtape is distributed with the proud collaboration of Gold and FunkYaMama... The crazy ass artwork is by Pupa 'the only one' Tee and Biga's reprezentin' for Ragnampiza and Overknights..!!..

"Noso-comio Tung-steno eno ...Noso-comio Tung....!!"....Now, if you don't speak italian you might not know what exactly this means..but we assure you that you'll find yourself repeating these obscure sounds after listening to Millelemmi's "dissected" dialect. Phonemes and meanings are elegantly used and abused just as new music is created from used and abused synths, records or toys all fused into a very personal, original and yet familiar way. All homemade mostly with his MPC and MIC and with a little bit of help from his friends Franco Crudo and Jaja with the appropriate scrathing and Simone Zaccagnini with the appropriate artwork. This is one of those albums where you'd like to thank the inventor of the "skip back" button on your player, whether you're exploring the layers of meaning of words or the puzzle shaped sounds... In other words..if you have ears you must have this album and that's where it gets easy: it's FREE!!
There's always a room at the "Nosocomio Tugnsteno"!!
Mixed by Andrea Bracali at Quasi Studio
Independently released in January 2010

Here's some music from a non-musician! Lo Zac or Low'N'Zak, better known as Simone Zaccagnini, he's actually a visual/drawing artist. His work is all handmade and when his eyes are tired he boots up his old pc and starts messin with samples on an old version of Cubase Sx.. Well the result is right in front of your ears, so play the player and if you dig.. go ahead with the download button cause, yes..."Free'P'Hop" is all free!!

free download free
If you feel enthusiastic about this just looking at the cover, you should, cause it's our first SAMPLER!!!!! All music and lyrics and scratches are taken from our individual projects and everything has been produced in the family, from the masters to the artwork. Which is by Simone Zaccagnini while the photos were taken by Alessandro Pace (email@example.com). All tracks are by Overknights members plus our "outsider" member from Turin Franco Crudo, with his fine scratching appearing on "Nosocomio Tungsteno".
You Can now (Sep 2010) download the whole sampler for FREE from http://overknights.bandcamp.com/album/overknights-mini-sampler-0

Ladies and gentelmen, we ask you not to disturb the sleepwalker. The sleepwalker's synapsis pattern reveals calm and continuos brain function, this pattern should not be disturbed. Everyone knows how dangerous it can be to wake up a sleepwalker, and this could be a hint on what happens on track 5!!
Manuele Atzeni's second album comes straight out of his room (as you can see) appearing as the first release for hometown's newborn Woobo Records!! As we live in a material world, my friends, not all can be free. But luckily, sometimes we're able to give things a decent price and give you the possibility to give us some means and encouragement (at the least!) in order to continue to make music. So if you dig...., show some love and if you can't ....we love feedback too.. it's all good, it's all about the music!!
Manuele Atzeni "Beats For The Sleepwalker", released by Woobo Records on Apr 2010, buy it @:
Here's Millelemmi's Eoliade!! Indipendent release, dated September 2009. Two samplers, one synth and Sicily's Eolie. Watch out for the waves and go easy on the vodka & gelsi.. and if you don't know what gelsi are, well.. you can try to google it but it just ain't the same... so you might wanna listen to what it would sound like for now, before booking your next trip to Eolie..
