Olderic and Musumeci, whose friendship and close alliance is layering on their deep passion for electronic music, are stepping up to compile and mix the sixth instalment of Compost Records’ Black Label Series DJ mix compilation. Both artists steadily and successfully shaping and contributing a modern, forward thinking approach of dance music and club culture – made in Italy.
Olderic, heading from Venice, is resident DJ at one of the most influential underground clubs in Italy – CirQ – where he’s got a perfect platform to shape his unique style as a DJ but also gaining invaluable inspiration for his own productions. His “Alma EP” released on Compost Black in 2015 as well as his recent remix for Musumeci & The Element and a soon to be released collaboration with Peter Pardeike (both for Connaisseur) are state of the art house music and received support by the likes of Mano Le Tough, Âme, Laurent Garnier, Tale Of Us or Ewan Pearson to name a few. Whereas Sicily based Musumeci, also part of the project Human Machine – making big waves with their “146 EP” these days, is one of the masterminds behind the superb Italian underground label Engrave Ltd – and a top notch DJ of course!
This being said, we are more than happy that Olderic & Musumeci now teamed up to compile and mix the next chapter of our Black Label Series. The duo did a superb job digging the crates and putting their favourite tunes of our rich and eclectic catalogue into motion. Paying attention to the labels recent years true highlights as well as adding some of their personal secret weapons in form of Musumeci & Olderic Special Edits – now exclusively available as part of the compilation for the first time. Olderic and Musumeci drawing a very personal picture and show how to shift from more leftfield and disco tinged territories to modern House, Techno and beyond to otherworldly regions of dance music with this fluent yet diverse mix which is touching all the right spots and senses – on and off the dancefloor!
