It doesn’t take an expert in musical genres and movements to find out that since the last few months, a new musical family has built itself on the ruins of loud big-beat-like fidget and overly distorted washing machine electro. Inspired by the “less is more” ethics of minimal techno as much as the DIY/sample-anything-as-long-as-it’s-got-attitude" philosophy of hip-hop, this new un-named form of groovy and refreshing house music is rising and Institubes’ new “little brother label” Sound Pellegrino is proud to be on the forefront of such an exciting phenomenon.
Curated by renowned DJs and taste makers Orgasmic and Teki Latex, (from pioneer electronic hip hop outfit TTC – Teki also happens to be one of the founders of Institubes), Sound Pellegrino has quickly established itself as one of the labels to look out for in 2009, releasing singles by Zombie Disco Squad, Renaissance Man, Harvard Bass, Momma’s Boy and Douster and generating interest by A-List DJs from all ends of the dance music spectrum such as Laidback Luke, Mowgli, A Trak, Sinden, Pete Tong, Riva Starr, Chloé to name a few.
Today Orgasmic and Teki latex, the two public faces of the label, unite to form the Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team and they are ready to take that movement to a club near you. Even though their teaming up behind the turntables is rather recent, these two have known each other for 15 years and have released countless collaborations. Going through various musical phases, they have always kept a will to explore forward-thinking dance music that will make the crowd go crazy without sounding stale and outdated. Mixing ingredients ranging from tribal rythms, pumping tech house and mini baltimore to warped funky sounds with a slice of club rap thrown in for good mesure, the Thermal Team’s mineral cocktail promises to bring something refreshing and bubbly to the table. With already 3 mixes acclaimed by the blogosphere under their belt, as well as remixes and original productions as the SP Thermal Team in the works, this new combination of already well established forces is ready to take the house music world by storm.
