We have a special Freebie Friday download today… ‘teschno’ comes from Andrea Fiorito on the back of his latest album release. And no, that’s not a typo. It’s a beast of a techno track – one we’re sure you’re going to love. We managed to catch up with Andrea to ask him a few questions about the release and his recent album ‘Voodoo Grooves’…
Hey Andrea, your album recently landed on Mike Shannon’s CYNOSURE imprint… we understand you recorded it in a studio that once belonged to your grandfather in Italy surrounded by 200 year old furniture – can you tell us more about that and how important those surroundings were for you in this album making process?
Hello. Well, I am a person who loves art in general, and my grandfather was a very passionate art collector. I think i have to thank him and my grandma because just coming here visiting i learned to love beauty and art. To find myself here with my new family now it’s like a kind of dreamy experience “weird and cool in the meantime”. Of course I felt a special energy while recording the album!
One of your tracks, People in Da House Jam, features a sample from Beat International’s track ‘Dub Be Good To Me’ – a classic and a sample that everyone must recognise. What was it about this track that made you want to sample it for your album?
I simply love that tune and i used it as it was in the 90’s at the times of Todd “the God” Terry or DJ Sneak. I wanted to make my little tribute to the old school New York house!
We’re hosting a free download of a track you produced ‘teschno’ – it is exactly that! We love it. How come this didn’t make the album?
Well to be honest I decided to add another extra tune just for fun. Also the title ‘Teschno’ is funny because Germans use to call teschno the today’s techno,vlet’s say slower and deeper…It’s funny to make tunes just for fun isn’t it? Anyway, that track hasn’t quite go the same feeling as the other tracks of the album…………But I will release that track on vinyl soon!
And finally, the question we ask everybody, if you were a techno kitten for a day what would you get up to?
Good question. I think I would love to sit in front of a sub woofer to get massaged from the bass and feel my body shiver!
