techno and few other intelligent things

We are Further Pushers and this is our debut.

Few months ago I met Simone, a local dj known as Cutter, a nice and distinguished guy with a cutting sense of humour I talked to many times at the glorious Glucose techno night in Rome.
We decided to get togheter producing some tracks and we quickly discovered we were a perfect match, we could produce music easily and we were really excited about what we produced.
Further Pushers were born!
We compiled a demo and contacted three labels we thought could be interested in. We got no reply and we decided to print the vinyls ourselves. FUCK YEAH!

We first mixed the three tracks we choose to release at Subsound Studio in Rome with the help of Luciano Lamanna a really talented and enthusiastic guy who was really impressed by our work. We mastered the tracks at Andrea Merlini’s studio (one of the best mastering technician in Rome and also part of the famous Minimal Rome crew) cause we decided to keep it local.
Everything went so fast and we were ready to send the files to the printing factory. We decided to print only 150 copies cause we didn’t know how actually the game worked so we kept it kinda low profile.
Then Luciano Lamanna got us into his label/collective called Love Blast and we were happy to be part of a local community with friends and skilled producers.

Now the vinyl is out and we are so fracking excited.
(the digital will be also released on the 14th on every major digital music stores)

Some technical info about the records.
We recorded the tracks jamming on our cheap synths and drum machines: we used a MC303 , a MC505, a MFB522, a Yamaha TG33, an drrum machine called Eko Ritmo20 and some pedals fx like the Ibanez Tube Screamer and the Memory Boy. Plus we used some field recordings.

Pattern Burst

With all the chest beating and soul-searching that has accompanied the massive changes to the musical landscape in the last few years, it would be easy to think that we are heading into an end-times where all music will finally be defeated by the forces of evil. Digital platforms, if we are to believe the hype, have probably killed music off for good. Sales are down, piracy rampant, and even if you can get your hands on new music it will probably be by some teenage idiot utilising a cracked copy of FL studio to stick some low bit rate samples of the Amen break behind one of their mates singing about smoking weed.

It’s not exactly true though, is it? Those who once benefited from what were essentially cartels are still scrambling to repair the cash pipeline that ruptured as more and more methods of distribution came online. And…
