Stabber (Lucky Beard Rec, Italia)
Stabber is a cool guy but always pissed off, you can’t talk with him, you can’t try to ask him anything, just leave him alone in his studio while he try to destroy the building with his huge sub-basses.
The only way to chill Stabber is to cook him lots of arrosticini and bring him a big glass of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. Stabber’s first EP for Lucky Beard Rec, This Torsion, contains tracks featured in lots of mixes from allover the world and played in the last weeks by artist like: Crookers, TNGHT and others even on BBC Radio 1 Diplo and friends show.
Milangeles is the new side project of the Italian creative collective, 100% Presi Bene, where djs, musicians, photographers, film makers and graphic designers join forces in one big creative melting pot. Milangeles describe themselves as tough as the land from where they originate and as alive as the ethnic groups who reside there, but all you really need to know about the Italian duo is they deliver a steaming hot mix of tropical bass, moombathon and juke. The duo’s sound is born in the dark night of the urban jungle; it borrows from an entire generation of Latin sounds and melds it all together with mechanical synths and heartfelt trumpets. By mixing the raw power of the shantytowns with the almost primal world of the dance floor, Milangeles recreates the ambience of the shadowy, dilapidated suburbs of Milan, where a fight may break out at any second.
