We Never Sleep: after being informed that HDADD will join ONRA, L-VIS 1990 and Jam City to warm up the NWO Party by RETROSUPERFUTURE in Milan, we decided to share a gift for those who cannot be there phisically. So don't worry, you can connect your soul directly with this experience through the new mixtape which was recorded live and direct for the full fx.
It features some obscure spacey material from HDADD's vinyl archive: a roadtrip which starts from Italian libraries to end in jazzminded electronics.
An Edited Radio Version was previously broadcasted by Musical Box (RAI - Italian Broadcasting Network) and now it's available in its original full extension for your listening pleasure.

Here we are again: Colossius is back with a new solo work since a long time and is well worth the wait considering the fact that we're talking about a fresh and forward thinking full lenght.
"Tribal Pursuit" recalls the missing link between the past and the future: it investigates the roots of rythm and transposes the tradition into something which sounds like the voice of tomorrow.
Most of the tracks here share a lot of with the history of grooves, from psychedelic jazz to indigenous folklore but it seems they have been upgraded to be one of the most modernist listening experience your ears are going to perceive nowadays.
The relation with roots is clear but on the other hand you've an avant-garde approach which in someway declares a distance from the past.
Like an heretic Futurist who keeps the consciousness of the origins of his culture, he creates a new language keeping in mind the source of his informations.
Thanks to the the use of hybrid techniques it sounds like the man and machine finally melt together in a harmonic way: think about futurism and turn its kinetic attitude into a colourful spiral of dynamic percussions, organic grooves and cinematic vibrations.
Then Chase the Rhythm.

The Mixtape contains exclusive tracks too and and can be considered a gentle introduction to his upcoming works.

This new project from HDADD can be considered a collection of pictures which wants to portray the presence of life, its variety of subtle manifestations we can experience even in places that seem to have been abandoned.
Life can be seen as a chain reaction of activities, movements and permanent changes of status that may evolve from a bacteria to the final degrade of ashes.
But what remains then can really be considered only devastation or the spirit of life keeps blooming in the documentation of the previous activities?
Life exists everywhere just because the death of someone or something can only be perceived by a living observer, as death itself is the absence of perception and the zero level of feelings.
So this new concept is about this beautiful paradox which is most of the time an ephemeral and ambiguous brackets between the state of origin and that of nemesis, which in a historical observation plane can just be regarded natural mutation.
Autogenesis is a sonic fiction which celebrates the spontaneous processes of creation across different scenarios: a spectral analisys of life's heartbeat and the rythm of cosmic harmony.
Empty Places aren't Empty Spaces.
