--- Rotated EP (2009) by Resonancedj & JBit8 —-

... in a period ( early 2000s ) when a new musical genre started forming ( what was then called "DUBSTEP" ), two young unsigned Italian artists, Resonancedj & JBit8, who had been experimenting and mixing TechnoGarage, Dub and ElectroFunky sounds inspired by British 2Step, met at a studio. "Rotated EP" was then born, from the minds of these two young artists, a sort of acoustic experimentation aimed at the bodily and spiritual perception of low frequencies. Shortly after, as "good unquiet artists", the two forgot this material ( as too often happens ) and dedicated their time elsewhere... until they decided to fish back the tracks, making them public and free, as the times are now more than ready for them. The climax of these sonic stream is maybe represented by "Particel Size", one of the songs here, of strong physical and sensitive impact, at times meditative, turning the listeners' focus on the sharp bass lines, at times dark and synthetic. We spoke too much, enjoy!"

Recorded in Sasso Marconi, Bologna, at John Duncan's residence, “A Maze Sing Wave” is Z'EV's latest work, especially composed for Spettro records.

It's needless to say what an honor it is to host Z'EV on Spettro, an artist I so much admire and that has so strongly made Spettro Records' history. It was him who played for Spettro's opening concert back in 2010, and it his him who will continue forging its destiny and giving us strenght.

From the 2008 album Bros B4 Hoes by Cockmasta Flex, as far as I know the only gay rap worth noticing.

This album was printed as a collectors item in 2008 with only 100 copies made. It is by request of the artist that this 2012 remastered version be shared for free, in hopes of instigating more hardcore gayngsta rap, and as a memorial to MC Bowel Shuvel.

19 May, 2012. Bologna. Homework Festival. Among tons of pseudo-electronic dance music, 10 static noise makers get together under the aphasic conductor Dj Balli to make the most undanceable music ever heard. A disastrous orchestra of static noise, under the hypnotic images of Sun Ra's Space is The Place , instigating a cacophony of catastrophic proportions upon the innocent fun-prone audience. 2 performaces were held that night, one under Balli's strict observance, the under under riotous spirits of alcohol and drugs. That same night, the first earthquake in years struck Emilia Romagna.
This short track is all that's left of that fluttering night.

The brutality and ugliness of metal. The minimal beauty of ambient electronic music. It occurred to me that these two seemingly disparate styles compliment each other so well. This is the kind of music I wanted to be making. Something along the lines of JESU. But I wanted the heavy element to be slower, uglier, and more hypnotic . I wanted the ambience lifted right off of a BRIAN ENO album. Or STARS OF THE LID. Fuck it. But I went with the BUDDHA MACHINE. It sounded perfect. The songs were tracked and assembled by PHILIP SHAW BOVA at Bovasound Studios in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Then they were off to New Jersey, where JAMES PLOTKIN did an immaculate job with the mastering.
Nine songs split into two EPs. The first EP is called “ORANGE”. The second EP is called “GREEN/BLACK”. Both EPs are sold together as a double-cassette release. Available for purchase from DWYER RECORDS and for digital download from BANDCAMP .

The Show Must Go Home e' un evento creato e ospitato da DBPIT & XXENA @GattoAlieno, Roma, allo scopo di combinare musica dal vivo con una buona cena in un confortevole ambiente casalingo lontano dalle strade affollate e dai locali troppo spesso deserti...questo lavoro vuole lasciare un ricordo di questo esperimento che speriamo vedra' una seconda stagione!
la musica spazia dall'improvvisazione acustica all'elettronica e la trentina di invitati si occupa della preparazione delle cibarie di cui godere dopo gli show!
dal momento che non era stata prevista alcuna release, ci scusiamo per la qualità non sempre ottimale delle registrazioni.
un grazie particolare a tutti gli artisti che hanno partecipato, a tutti gli amici che hanno contribuito alle cene, alle etichette che hanno accettato di diffondere le registrazioni, ai nostri gatti, confinati

Here is the much awaited anniversary compilation by Spettro that nobody was waiting for. Merry Christmas then.
When Brusio Netlabel offered us to share compilations we got on this chance immediately, but anyway ended up late. It hasn't even been a year since we started Spettro, but we believe that the quantity of things we have released is sufficient enough to compile this archive of things, of things past and of things future, to make order in our minds, and to try giving a chance to all of those who haven't heard our voices. This compilation voices our lives, in the hope that they will be fruitful and long, and knowing that no matter how long they will survive, it has been and will be meaningful, to us, and hopefully to others. Many things seem to conjure against us, mainly, money, which is not too distant from existence itself. Anyway, this compilation wishes to thank everyone who supported us and that will in the future.
The only thing we can be certain about, is that everything we have supported has been and always will be a pure manifestation of life, of wills untouched. Our thanks go to the artists, and to Martina Merlini especially, the author of this wonderful artwork. Please, enjoy!
