ANGELA K - Ballad

Angela K. is an artistic alter ego born in 2005: Angela Scalvini, conservatory trained songwriters, meets the electronic artist Isacco Zanola and experimental guitarist Maurizio Rinaldi. Angela K. music draws inspiration from trip hop musical sensuality (Portishead above all) to traditional singers (from Billy Holiday to Joan Baez) melting different influences into a unique style: the “electrofolk” of “The Legendary Indian Aquarium and Other Stories”, published in 2006 for the local indie label Kandinski Records, which received very good reviews and allowed Angela to perform all over Italy. Since then Angela has blended a fascination for electronic music and her love for folk, thus giving birth to her own fragile and intimate style, always under experimentation, surely unique and original. Rebirth sign “Ballad” (a rework of the album track “Black Beast”) and release a great package of mixes ! From Germany, rising producer Andre’ Lodemann, creates a soulful techno master-piece that grows and grows with every play….takes the strength and sharp nature of the original and sets it against a clinically clean and instantly mesmerising techno backdrop, a gorgeous concoction of shrill synths and crisp beats ! John Selway & Ulysses (Elliot Taub), important figures on the NY Techno/Electro scene, are in with a remix under their eclectic Neurotic Drum Band moniker, with influences in every shape, size and direction, combining old school freestyle breakbeats, vocal stabs, rock guitar riffs, disco basslines and a ton of techno undertones. Pirupa & Pigi from Italy deliver an hot groove ready to destroy any dancefloor!
