Antoni Maiovvi and Gianni Vercetti specialise in a strange niche of electronic music, known as Horror Disco. Specially crafted atmospheric, cinematic dance music taking influence from Italo Disco, Krautrock, New Beat, EBM, House, Techno and most importantly the film scores of the 70s and 80s (think Argento's Tenebrae, Fulci's Zombie and John Carpenter's Escape From New York)
Antoni Maiovvi has been releasing Italo / Horror Disco records since 2008. He is not Italian, but actually from Bristol in the UK. He has produced 3 albums for Seed Records (the most recent being a double album of fake lost Italian TV Thriller soundtracks) one album for Bristol's Caravan Recordings. A 12â€ for Kompakt's sublabel Fright, as well as E.Ps for Slime and Italy's Sauroid.
Gianni Vercetti is a Italian/Greek Horror Disco producer living in Vienna. Slowly working away in a secret bunker of VHS bootlegs, he has released through MinimalRome and Black Montanas.
Maiovvi and Vercetti met in the start of 2011 at a party they were both booked to play in Athens and remained friends ever since. A conversation became apparent that there was no single label dedicated to this specific genre, and though releases were not hard to come by, the pair both felt it was time for them to take control over their own release schedule and really curate a label of great music released on limited edition 12â€ vinyl and for digital download.
But alas, both Maiovvi and Vercetti are poor artists living in Europe, they have no savings and cannot afford to put the money for the 12â€ pressing by themselves.
This is where you come in.
What we are asking is for you to either buy the Digital Release from us (every small amount helps us reach our goal) or to essentially pre-order the 12â€ which would then be shipped to you (included in the price)
The tracklisting for this EP is
A1 â€“ Vercetti Technicolor â€“ L'Incubo Senza Fine
A2 â€“ Vercetti Technicolor â€“ L'Incubo Senza Fine (Legowelt Remix)
B1 â€“ Antoni Maiovvi â€“ Rituals Of Lust
B2 â€“ Antoni Maiovvi â€“ Themroc
Gianni Vercetti's macabre soundtracks are presented with lashings of VHS grain. 'L'Incubo Senza Fine' is dripping with tension, a relentless kick drum thud like the march of the undead themselves. Legowelt's remix only adds to this, calling on the sound of his most recent collection 'The Teac Life'. We find ourselves in the deep forest of a futuristic, nightmarish land.
Antoni Maiovvi's Rituals Of Lust is a 98bpm dark EBM/New Beat-esque stomper. Retro-space age futurism, battleships preparing for war near the moons of Jupiter. Themroc(k)'s would perhaps be the perfect music for a malfunctioning T-800, demented vocals a-go-go. Dark brooding action soundtracks for a bleak tomorrow.
