LOST & FOUND – RUCCI

COSMIC SUMO REC – SPCSR020

Andrea Rucci has began making music many years ago that’s why he is with no doubt one those artists that can be described as
“old school” .  a really cool and hyped term nowdays,  probably abused by the young generations of electronic musicians because of a sort of nostalgia and desirability towards who lived a musical world that is now totally disappeared.
Rucci has seen many of dancefloors, vinyls, clubs and dj booths, that’s why he has developed more and more the idea that music should not be necessarily tied with the formats which it’s performed or the genre but must be just pleasant and functionally to the context. His wide and wise artistic research comes from this simple concept and marks his whole method of work.
Who has been involved with music for the main part of his life most likely will have projects, remixes and works of all genres buried in his HardDiscs. This great Album comes out from an endless archive of ideas. Some forgotten gems that were waiting in an old HD, In some cases brilliant ideas left unfinished for years, other times just a new edit or a remix that brings new life to an old project.  Andrea Rucci developes the idea of an Album that can sounds homogeneous and contemporary even if constantly  jumps between genres or years.
The album is an example of his musical path  that travels in parallel to his idea of livedjset  for which he use to create a musical texture using his long list of personal productions.
Many years from Now Rucci  still does not care a s—t about all of this “vinyl renaissance” with all of this rethorical and nostalgic nonsense, still the man is carrying on his personal way of live djset where he can remix and edit his own material with anyone else’s music in real time following the Zeitgeist of the moment.
Is this Conteporary enough?  Only the listener knows.

JUNO REVIEW
Florence based label Cosmic Sumo presents another fine release by their big boss Andrea Rucci. This full length entitled Lost & Found is a fine collection of moods and grooves that cover the full spectrum of house music and is definitely worthy of your attention. In fact: it’s his first album in 10 years since 2006′s Mu-Sick LP. Starting out with the bumping and surefire groove of dynamic opener “Lonely”, there are more wicked tracks in the form of the deep and sleazy “Holiday In Paris”, his dark and mysterious rendition of Metuo’s “Subway” and his collaboration with The Lulabenjim “Too Much Drunk” , a punk-funk jam reminiscent of Ralph Lawson’s 20:20 Soundsystem back in the day.

PREVIEW NEW RELESE SPCSR018

SPCSR0018

2022: The Scum Of The Earth an imaginary movie soundtrack by TULIOXI

Tulioxi releases for its Cosmic Sumo Recordings a romantic and sentimental project.
His new work is a soundtrack for an imaginary film and like the album’s title suggests, it is a passionate tribute to the Science Fiction of the Post Atomic era, the dystopian future, these raw kind of movies developed from the first half of the seventies until the late 80′s.
Tulioxi recreates a philological itinerary in the texture of a dark film, an adventurous work in which every sound evokes a specific atmosphere, The music of the album marks a narrative path, scene after scene. A tribute to every clichés of the genre.
You just close your eyes and listen to the album. You’ will be able to enter in a story which exists only if you build your own structure of it, your imagination will be the director of every sequence of the movie and every single track of this Album will perfectly fits with your personal screenplay . The late-night arrival in the dangerous city\prison, the struggle for survival in a hostile world, the violent anarchy, the final run into an uncertain future and, in the middle, distant drums, analog brass synths, modular systems, drum machines, neon, acid rain, mutant people, Spices, motorcycles, atomic fallout. All these scenes, all these moments are present in the records and if you shuts your eyes and listen you will be able to enjoy them as if you were at the movies.


FORKLIFT & SAW – ROBOT’S HEART

SPCSR017

FORKLIFT & SAW – ROBOT’S HEART (RUCCI & TULIOXI RMX)

COSMIC SUMO REC – SPCSR017

Forklift&Saw are brilliant duo from Milan, their debut on Cosmic Sumo Recordings is a clear manifesto of their intentions their Music takes inspiration from 80′s Sound and it’s entirely made! with analog synthesizers and drum machines from that age.
Two adrenalinic tracks for the disco lovers supported by remixes from the heads of Cosmic Sumo Tulioxi and Andrea Rucci


RUCCI & FEDELI – GET UP

SPCSR016

Rucci & Fedeli // Get up
Cosmic Sumo Recording
SPCSR016

Often in dance music it can take real guts to slow things down. However can really be worth the risk if done right, and that’s just what Rucci & Fedeli have done. “Get Up” is nearly five minutes of deep, slow-building cosmic grooves that is to take its time to work a dancefloor. The “Happy Edit” is trippy too but added vocals chants and vibes for extra measure. (Juno’s Review)


RUCCI & FEDELI – GET UP


TULIOXI – WHILE THE CITY SLEEP

SPCSR0015_Pagina_1“While The City Sleeps, Tulioxi compose Electronic Vintage music. As soon as the sun comes up you never have the perfect consciousness of what happened in those lonely and calm recording sessions, sometimes you realize that you got a music bomb in your hands and sometimes

you find yourself asking why you were so excited for that poor ugly track you made and you erase everything. Other times, luckily, you just pass to something else and you forget about it.

then, one day you take a moment to listen to your “old” things, forgotten in the archive, together with hundreds of project and suddenly you finds out some little gems that were there waiting for see the light.

This Album is a collection of tracks that tulioxi made in the last 3 years but for a reason or another were never published.


JAMES ROD Vs. TULIOXI – GUATEKE PIONEERS

CSRSP014James Rod and Tulioxi brings some of their respective composition skills on this new, exciting Release with the imprint
of Cosmic Sumo Recordings.
The pact between the two artist here is quite clear, everyone drops an original track and the other guy make a remix of it.
James Rod give us a Space Italo Disco gem with rolling rythmics and the huge tipical “rollerskate” bassline, Tulioxi instead push his sounds to the more dirty territory of indie Disco.


MONTEFROID-SISTER

SPCSR013Montefroid!

We know nothing about him. Few informations here and there tell us that he’s living on the top of Froid Mountain and is a great listener and collector of Funky!
Andrea Rucci & Blade (Jestofunk), friends and console buddies since ever, found out this strange fellow during a mushrooms hunt, right on that strange mountain. They developed a great feeling from the beginning, sharing the same passion for music. Montefroid led the two djs to the most hidden and rich mushroom farms and at that point, basically, their life was changed forever. Together, like a secret society they have produced so many records, so many songs for so many labels.
And now, finally, Montefroid has landed on Cosmic Sumo recordings to do what he does the best, the great, good, super fucking driving funky!

Tension si sbatte e suda cercando musica ovunque, in tutti gli anfratti, in tutte le cantine.
Nel buio grasso ed indigesto della città dei ristoranti, Tension cammina leggero con una solo piano in mente:Trovare i migliori live set di Musica Elettronica. Gente che suona tasti, che percuote pads, che gira potenziometri, che cerca timbri impossibili.
Vogliamo che questi artisti salgano sul nostro palco e ci offrano una performance unica ed irripetibile.

Si comincia con Koolmorf Widesen, Leonardo Barbadoro, uno dei migliori produttori underground di musica elettronica in Italia. Uno che ha suonato in tutta Europa ma ovviamente non a Firenze, visto che siamo degli idioti, visto che non sappiamo quanto fertile sia il terreno musicale nella nostra città, visto che se non c’è la Guest super pagata non alziamo il culo dal solito bar. Non sembra una cattiva idea quella di scoprire un po’ dei talenti che abbiamo a Fi. Leonardo\koolmorf è secondo noi un ottimo modo per dare un bel calcione nei denti al vostro interminabile aperitivo e constringervi a scoprire qualcosa in nuovo.

Discografia:
2007: “Koolmorf Widesen” (S/t, ECG)
2008: “Melodies Fork Now Promo” (Anoise Rec.)
2009: “Melodies Fork Now” (Eves)
2010: “Stun e Day” (Phaked)
2014: “JX-EP” (Wil-Ru Rec.)

Andrea Rucci is the boss of Cosmic Sumo Recordings and he’s always been very careful when decide to release some of his music production… This time he has decided to push the pedal on his main roots…Rucci was the resident dj in the most important underground club in Florence, he has destroyed many turntables helping to set up the basis for the italian club scene of the nineties, this Release could have been released exactly during those days of free music exploration.
“Feel the cosmic groove” is not just the title of the Ep but above all is an hot wet and fat request to the people of electronic music. These tracks ask you to be danced.
