DEATH IN PLAINS – COLOURFUL VIDEO & GHOSTAPE REMIX
Death In Plains, is one man electronic wunderkind Enrico Bocceletti, described in recent press as “Warp-esque IDM from an Italian that’s more than a musician” (Loud & Quiet Magazine) and like “Wavves colliding with Future Islands/Light Pollution” (Artrocker Magazine), fine praise indeed. We have just got our hands on the new video to his track ‘Colourful’, taken from the recently released Mustard Polo 10″ EP out on London’s DiscError Recordings. The label has also given us a free download link to the ‘Colourful Ghostape Remix’, seven minutes of beautiful grooves that build and build to a blissed out crescendo.
Death In Plains mark a new wave of Italian talent that has been breaking on English shores of late. The rise of this scene and has been well documented by our friends over at ‘The New Thing’ blog:
“At last, a new phenomenon. For three years now, Italian club nights like London Loves in Milan and Rome’s Fish n Chips have been bringing the post-punk and industrial sounds of London’s East End to Italian audiences, playing the same records and bringing the same bands – Hatcham Social, Neils Children, Ipso Facto, Electricity In Our Homes, These New Puritans – to Italian fans, and gathering the country’s like-minded youth under the banner of the alternative. Now the reaction is imminent: a new wave of Italian groups is trying its luck in London, returning to its musical roots in a foreign city, with its own singular sound.” – The New Thing (Italian New Wave)
Shot and edited by Alberto Baldolini (one half of Italian duo Young Wrists and General Decay), the video was pieced together from live footage and pre-gig clips shot a week ago at a show in Ravenna. As an act of kindness and gratitude to you dear reader, our friends at DiscError have made available a remix of ‘Colourful’ by French DFA collaborator Ghostape as a free download from their Official.fm page.
