Maurizio Cascella’s debut on Wonder Wet Records, a first single with an unarguably techno flavor. Cascella is formerly known for his Elettronica Romana productions, a label which marked a specific period in history in the Italian capital, through a style and sound that has included performers like Brando Lupi, Attilio Tucci, Donato Dozzy and Giorgio Gigli. Founder of Concrete Records, Cascella treads his path with a sophisticated, unordinary sound.
A side – Old Rose: it is distinguished by the constantly present rhythm, sometimes experimental but without ever losing the groove, which in turn supports the architecture of the track lending space for creativity to the bass and the leads.
B side – Black of Mars: a markedly techno sounding track with rhythmic construction, it takes you into a hypnotic and unravelling world, expressing a very contemporary way of making electronic music.
About Maurizio Cascella:
The first thing you notice upon entering Maurizio Cascella’s studio is the huge amount of vinyl; a sign of great passion and knowledge about music. His talent is dedicated to House Music, contaminating electronic with afro and jazz sounds; a peculiarity that makes him an extremely eclectic Dj in the local radio. Maurizio began his career at a very young age: at only sixteen, he carved out important spaces in the best clubs of the Adriatic coast. Passion, study and instinct, are the ingredients of his success. In a short time period, his innovative style brings him to play in the most exclusive clubs in Italy. As a teen Maurizio collaborated with the Argentinean Mazzarulli; the first recording experience is “Keeping Depth EP” on the label UMM.
From Pescara he moves to Sardinia to experience nights over nights and Successes over successes. For fifteen years he has been behind the console at the Blues Café of Porto Cervo and other Italian clubs. At the same time, he organizes events for the Ritual of Baia Sardinia, raising local levels of absolute artistic and musical value. In Sardinia, he met the owner of the Club Goa of Rome, Giancarlino. Between the two comes an intense musical and professional understanding.
When the time came for the big jump; Rome became the artistic home of Maurizio. Who comes with a storm of ideas emphasizing a creative pluralistic identity. Italy’s Capital adopts him, keeping him tight; Maurizio has today a strong bond with the capital by collaborating with the Roman club GOA.
The summer on the island is a catalyst that will attract DJ producers such as Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice, Marco Carola, and many others. A catalyst of new exclusive locations, parties, Jet-Set. There is a short step in the expansion from Italy to Europe. London offers him different sets to perform. In 2005, he began a permanent collaboration with the Drunkey Monkey and with Bar 54. He also plays at the club Sosho and Retox during evenings. His music resonates from the Thames until Danube.
