NEW BAND ON ROSTER >> OTTO RIITA (ROCK TO THE BEAT REC.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’re happy to welcome OTTO RIITA on our Roster!

After years approaching each other, yugo solo and Rescue finally team up to create some music under the moniker OTTO RIITA. Rescue is a dj, radio producer and sound artist. She is active within the french underground electronic scene since the early 2000. yugo solo is one of the guitar heroes of the french super band RIEN (RIP) and member of the crazy duo Câlin. Within OTTO RIITA they blend their skills and backgrounds to create an odd yet funky spacey disco vibe that is a real collision of worlds.

The title track ‘Azul Piscina’ is first and is a rugged affair with shooting synths, funky drums and a raw energy that really gets you going. Cosmic melodic explosions and knotted bass guitar riffs brush up with one another and make the whole thing really jump out at you. Next up, the equally interesting ‘Square Dance’ is a deeper affair, with rippling synths and big bass downstrokes taking you far off into the cosmos. It is a musical tune that mixes organic and synthetic sounds with real aplomb.

Belgian-Italo duo Front De Cadeaux step up to remix and rework ‘Azul Piscina’ into a slow and ponderous, chuggy disco prowler with tumbling percussion and loose drums falling away from the groove. It’s playful and curious and makes way for Argentinian drummer and producer Publicist to step up to tackle the same track. His version is much more direct and freaked-out with mad synths bringing a tortured feel, industrial sounds adding energy and slap-funk drums driving the whole thing along.
