Giuseppe Ielasi - Stunt

Giuseppe Ielasi


Schoolmap Records

Released: 7th July 2008 | 6 track laptronica ep
'Stunt' is the first in a series of three EP's which represent an interesting stylistic departure from Ielasi's previous work. The series is focused on the use of one turntable and a large selection of vinyl records as sources for raw material, and pulses/rhythm as main organisational principle. The basic sound material, in the form of short segments and loops or longer and more complex improvisations, was collected over the course of three months, using techniques influenced more by turntablism, than traditional sampling or plunderphonics. The raw sequences have then been edited and assembled in 6 tracks (more to follow...), whose structures are probably closer to house music productions than to Ielasi's more atmospheric and layered compositons from his earlier releases. Stunt was mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Giuseppe Ielasi, born in 1974, lives and works in Milan, Italy He released music on various labels such as Erstwhile, Bowindo, Kning Disk, Sedimental (his first solo 'Plans'), Hapna ('Gesine' and 's/t'), 12k (the critically acclaimed 'August', also featured in the 'best of 2007' list for The Wire magazine).
