Ricci has been shaping the underground scene in Europe for 20 years now, as a DJ, label owner and producer with credits on the likes of Compost, Connected Frontline and MoBlack. His weekly show on Ibiza Global Radio is a go-to for lovers of timeless house and techno and naturally he has gigged all over his native Ibiza’s finest spots as well as around Europe.
His excellent new track ‘Sternentreiben’ is a busy techno journey with electro bass, slapping hits and dark wave vocals all making for an alluring sound world. It’s a place of reflective melody and plenty of thoughtful synths, but with an irresistible groove.
Famous former Trouw resident Patrice Baumel has an elegant and emotive sound that can be warm and pensive or more peak time and energetic, as he has proven on his Global Underground mix and with releases on labels like Afterlife and Watergate. Here he flips the original into an electrifying techno roller with bright synths lighting up the skies in cosmic fashion.
Next to remix is Dodi Palese, who grew up DJing many different styles in his native Southern Italy, runs his own labels What Ever Not, Engrave Ltd and Rakale and has recently released on the like of Innervisions and Exit Strategy. First comes his fantastic Power Beats mix, a classy melodic techno track with plenty of astral synths and dancing drums that ooze futuristic soul. His second superb offering is even more direct, with trance-inducing chords bringing plenty of hands in the air energy.
This is another vital package from Stripped Down and Claudio Ricci. You can now listen to the full premiere of Patrice Baumel’s remix exclusively on When We Dip. Enjoy!
