Kalimba Tune E.P. (feat. Ajello)


Released: 25th February 2013 | 4 track house ep

After a storming end to 2012 with the Slow It Down & Elijah Collins release in November swiftly followed by Elias Tzikas in December, Retrospective is back with a monster of a release. We are proud to kick off 2013 with none other than Italy's finest; Ajello!

Eclecticism is definately the keyword word of the Ajello project comprising of Luca (DJ Rocca) Roccatagliati and Fabrizio Taver Tavernelli. The Ajello sound features a number of influences all of which can be heard in the tracks on this, their first E.P. on Retrospective; electro, new-wave, italo-disco, disco, neurofunk, eurodance, space sounds, early house. Over the years their music has received worldwide support from a host of international artists including Laurent Garnier, Erol Alkan, Dimitri From Paris, Andrew Weatherall, and Nick Fanciulli amongst others.

As this is the first E.P. of 2 from Ajello we decided to pull out all the stops on the remixes for this project. First up is Sean Johnson aka Hardway Bros, undoubtedly one of Future Disco's pioneers with a heritage to match who delivers a truly unique rework of Kalimba Tune taking us on a trip back to the warehouse sounds of the 80's. The second mix of Kalimba Tune is delivered by Chris Massey best known for his mixes of 2 Bear's - Bear Hug, Diplo & Sleazy Mcqueen who delivers a pure Nu Disco groover. In addition, for the digital release Verdo of Danny Was a Drag King fame brings his signature hypno-beat flavor to the fold alongside label owners Ruben & Ra who deliver a taste of Cosmic Jam to Saturday Morning. Quite a package I'm sure you will agree! Keep your eyes peeled for releases by Heion, Rayko, Fingerman, Ruben & Ra plus some other special surprises in 2013.
