Alternative stage | Chillout & more

Alternative Stage, un viaggio che parte dalla chillout e si evolve in nuove direzioni.

Viviamo nell’era del grande allineamento galattico fra la Terra, il Sole e il centro della nostra galassia. Come gli astri si dispongono in nuovi schemi, così anche la musica si sta evolvendo in nuove direzioni e configurazioni, che ridisegnano l‘universo della musica elettronica all’alba del nuovo millennio.

Dalle coste dei paesi affacciati sull’Oceano Pacifico nuove sonorità stanno sorgendo, influenzate dal mood della psichedelica ma assolutamente fresche ed innovative. La fusione sperimentale di sonorità acustiche ed elettroniche daranno luogo al panorama musicale della chillout. Un giardino dove le installazioni naturali si fonderanno con opere d’arte d’avanguardia, in un’attenta integrazione tra natura e tecnologia volta creare suggestioni extrasensoriali. Un luogo privilegiato dove il volume della musica agevolerà la contemplazione e l’interazione, la comunicazione verbale e lo scambio di conoscenze ed esperienze.

La musica che proporremo in questo luogo dello spirito sarà un viaggio che porterà il visitatore tra le inebrianti e innovative sonorità che animano i festival dalla California alla Nuova Zelanda. Bass, dub, glitch, world music, jazz, fusion e sperimentale riempiranno i cuori di gioia in un melting pot di emozioni e basse frequenze.

    ''CAN WE REALLY HAVE REACHED -- 27 YEARS OF STATIC??''

    EARTHLINGS!!

    First,I have to thank you all for supporting Eat Static over the years,whether you're a new fan,or old...it has been my great pleasure to bring you crazy music that you seem to appreciate and to always be interested in,no matter WHAT i throw at ya! I'm always amazed at how deep some of this stuff touches you...so thank you all!

    Right,loads of you are probably wondering about the new elusive album..i can tell ya now,it's well on the way to being done,and it will definitely be a double album..it might even be pressed on vinyl as well this time,budgets permitting..
    CD 1 will feature more of the up-tempo banging tunes ,YES,there's some techno,YES,there's some Drum n Bass and YES,there is plenty of QUALITY 'ALIEN INFUSED' Trance..the mission with all the tracks this time,was to show that albums's are very much alive and well and STILL the most important thing to me and the main reason i have continued with Eat Static all these years..
    CD 2 will be a full length experimental downtempo offering.... you have been warned! I have recorded this album the old school way... ie - isolation,lots of old gorgeous analogue synths,and taking every single track as far as i could,with experimentation and trying new idea's out..I wanted to push forwards and make music worthy of the 21st century..consequently,it's THE most 'Static' sounding album since the early days...no commercial pressure,just pure love,sweat and literally,tears....both these CDs are VERY personal this time and every single tune on there has a part of my genetic code within it...

    You may also be interested to know that i have done a couple of collaborations for this release..for the banging trance stuff, i have Laughing Buddha,Chris Rich and Martian Arts all guesting..and boy, did we let loose! And on the downtempo stuff, I've worked with Georgina Brett,who specialises in Vocal Looping techniques and makes amazing ethereal music,Robbert Heijnen - former member of Psychick Warriors of Gaia and founder member of Exquisite Corpse, and Mik Singh, a new name on the scene..the sessions all went so well,i am already discussing do more with these characters..sublime!

    Also,there are some BIG anniversary shows planned to celebrate lasting this long and still being alive! Static is headlining some major festivals this summer,including BOOM festival in Portugal,Antaris in Germany,Sun Festival in Hungary,Lost Theory in Croatia,TIP festival in Israel,Off the Tracks in the UK,No Mans Land - Uk,and maybe even another Glastonbury might be on the cards..wherever i end up,I hope to see some of you,out and about...

    Some of you may also know,i did a few sample packs this past year,working alongside 2 of the top companies,Sample Magic and Loopmasters...be sure to check those out if you make music yourself...a lot of very 'unique' sounding samples are waiting for ya...

    Unless you have been living in a cave,you probably know i have also been doing regular radio slots for Radiozora..these will continue at roughly the rate of 2 a month,as i enjoy doing these immensely..and they seem to be going down better and better each month...so keep tuning in and i promise you're always going to hear interesting music plus loads of stuff from the golden ages of dance and beyond..i knew there was a reason i bought all those albums!

    Rumours for the future: Next album to follow the anniversary release is looking like a follow up to 'Back to Earth' with our good friends 'Interchill Records'..this album was so popular,they asked me back to record another one..it's gonna be a much different affair as i HATE to repeat myself! I shall be working alongside some wacky bizarre sounding musicians for that one,so watch out for that one in the future...

    I am also planning a new musical project,something with a much more old school vibe,and getting away from the trance to explore tribal rhythms and old school acid house..i also want to explore the possibilities of jamming whole gigs free style,with this stuff...watch this space!

    Transmission sent!

    Cromedrop Records is the last step of the collective, an independent label whose first release on vinyl wants to be, as well as a point of arrival, a starting point for setting new targets, like promoting italian and international artists, and fixing what since many years was recognised in parties as “Cromedrop style”.

    In 2013 founds “Container”, a club oriented project in wich he’s artistic director and technical responsible. After the first season the monthly party, in wich he’s resident, placed it self as a landmark in the roman techno scene

    Con la fine dei novanta si chiude un epoca di creatività legata a grandi spazi,e spesso a situazioni estreme alcune volte incontrollabili.

    Nel 1999 Andy riscopre luoghi più caldi e colorati dall' India (che ha conosciuto già dal 1995) a Ibiza,dove si reinventa resident di un famoso mercatino Las Dalias ,qui nasce Andy shakty e riscopre i suoni caldi di Asian,afro,funk,dub,funk,lounge,chillout e world music.Partecipa a numerosi eventi e collabora con parecchi dj locali: T.I.P.,dj Pippi, Namaste, Dj Tajmahal, dj Pathaan.DC.10,Retinal Freman.

    L'idea musicale di Andy shakty non si esaurisce egli e' alla continua ricerca di forme musicali e sonorità diverse e oggi rappresenta un archivio musicale vivente. La musica non più solo ludica assume un ruolo educativo e divulgativo verso le nuove generazioni, giocare e interpretare le varie sub culture,la loro estetica ,pur mantenendo un profondo rispetto degli stili. Cosi nuove serate nascono con vecchi amici (Blast ,Sputnik,Pure soundz),al Neo Club,i dj set del mercoledì a “Lettere e caffè”,le Serate Burlesque con gli spettacoli di Lilly Rouge , Dj set per il Sunday Happy Market. Qui si riassume l'essenza d un DJ, diciamo un po Antropologo un po underground,un po “Shakty”... che ha attraversato 20 anni di musica e viaggi,nonostante tutto e' ancora vivo sia in senso energetico che fisico.
