About REPITCH Recordings:
REPITCH is the result of the collaboration of two young artists from Naples: Ascion and D.Carbone. The duo starts from the exploration of several different music, always reconnectable to techno and minimal. With the passing of time and after three years living together, they start to develop their own project. Shapednoise’s contribution turns out to be significant to introduce a highly individualistic and experimental style. REPITCH is not only music for clubs or the umpteenth label following pop stream. It sounds without prejudice.
The project sets up as an experimentation of many music forms that tend to cross the canons dictated by dance floor. From “Raw Techno” to “Industrial” and “Deep”, from electronic music to almost abstract sonorities. It revisits also what has been the “old school”, drawing it near futuristic arrangements. Releases are characterized by a design concept that makes REPITCH a label with a strong trademark. Here the artist is free to express his/her emotions, transforming them into music.
