about

Last summer Italian producer Luca Averna and British producer Chris Coco came up with an idea while hanging out at Luca’s studio in Ibiza - To make an album inspired by 90s Italo Dream House.

The result is ten tracks that start at that point, then go off in various directions, all made in Ibiza, mostly using vintage keyboards, including the classic Korg M1, a dusty old DX7 used on various recordings for Michael Jackson, and Luca’s trusty Roland 909 drum machine.

The first release from the album was Mina, a slice of deep, dreamy instrumental house music dedicated to Luca’s dog, who also appears on the cover.

Here are the magnificent remixes of that track.

Here’s what Vinyl Factory said about Leo Mas:

“The legendary Italian DJ… If you were lucky enough to be at Amnesia in Ibiza in the late ’80s, chances are you limbered up to the sound of Leo Mas. Between ’85 and ’88, he and Alfredo set the agenda for the Balearic sound, with Mas’ expansive warm-up sets the blueprint for the genre-defying selector culture now blossoming in the post-Discogs world.”

Fabrice (Fabrizio Lazzari) was one of the early exponents of the Italian dance scene. He started his professional career in local clubs and radio stations in Italy and in 1989 was beside Leo Mas at the infamous club Movida in Iesolo and with Leo Mas and Andrea Gemolotto is part of Big Brother Productions.

Juan Moretti is a bassist, drummer, composer, arranger, visual artist, DJ, hard clubber and good food lover who has been plotting his own route since the early nineties. He is co-founder of the 3IO jazz band and Things Happen nu disco duo who has been involved with theatre shows, short soundtracks, visual installations, festivals, DJ sets, experimental art and more.

My Friend Dario is very involved with Catania's underground music scene: he has soaked it up and helped to shape it for many years and always with a warm Mediterranean current gently flowing through his work.
