Perlon Announces New EP By Ivan Iacobucci, 'Logic Solution'

Ivan Iacobucci is debuting on the landmark label we all love with a four track EP, to be released on the 22nd of March. The EP trotters between strong house grooves and IDM experimental beats, bringing its listeners into unknown territories - especially the title-track 'Logic Solution' manages to be a dancefloor bomb with a strikingly original sound, making us think it's going to be one we'll hear a lot at parties in the next months.

 

Tracklist:

A1 Logic Solution 
A2 Platinum Tooth 
B1 Magic Tribulation 
B2 Android

Originally from Bologna, Italy, and relocated in Berlin, Ivan Iacobucci came from a funk background before encountering electronic music in 1988 with the birth of Detroit techno and Chicago house, quickly resulting in him launching Hole Records, the first independent Italian house music label. He counts many releases on renowned labels such as Cabaret recordings and Imprints records.

Decay Records Showcase @ 93 Feet East + Nima Gorji Mix

 

 
The guest for this Meoko podcast is someone we can’t hide we are long-time fans of. Nima Gorji is back in the series with a new podcast, and it is no secret that we love his deep and groovy minimal style - Nima never disappointed us and we didn’t expect him to this time either.
 
Despite having origin from Iran, his musical roots are in Copenhagen, where he held his first residency in 95, at Rust Club, one of the best underground clubs in the city at the time. Nowadays when Nima Gorji is not staying in Ibiza to work on his music he is probably touring intensively in the best clubs and festivals around the world. We believe this mix undoubtedly shows his experience in building up a groove and his various influences. 
 
Impress in an hour and half is not easy - yet almost immediately we smile and have fun while Nima is dragging us deeper on the recording. By combining obscure and deeper track with bouncy Ibiza tech styles (we are thinking, for example, of the Fuse release 'Rich Nxt - Serious', played around the end of the mix) the outcome is amusing to say the least, with the only downside of leaving us ready with a party mood, and craving for more.

If you are based around London you will have the chance to hear Nima perform a back to back with the Venezuelan talent Giorgio Maulini, at the Decay Records Showcase coming up in March, on Saturday 9th at 93 Feet East. The party, happening through the daytime, will start at 3PM and go on until 1AM.
 
Joining Nima Gorji and Giorgio Maulini headlining the line-up there will be Panorama Bar’s resident André Galluzzi. With more than 25 years of experience and releases on top notch labels such as Cadenza, Cocoon, Ostgut Ton and Highgade, André can be considered a real key figure in the house music scene and a master in turning up any dancefloor.Quality acts James Dexter b2b Davide Decay, Mauro Ferno & Mestivan, Max, Lenka Toma and Kego & Albi complete the line-up of what promises to be a memorable showcase.
