Davide Squillace’s This And That Lab welcomes back the Italoboyz whose two original tracks on ‘Melody Of Ska In Paradise’ EP are made in collaboration with Blind Minded, and come complimented with a remix by Matteo Spedicati. Also on the EP is a track by Marco Donato, who is one half of the Italoboyz working under his solo alias Durant.
Originally from Italy but currently residing between London and Berlin, the Italoboyz are a duo consisting of the aforementioned Marco Donato and Federico Marton, whose clued-up house and techno sounds have brought them to esteemed labels such as Moon Harbour, Saved Records, Get Physical, Crosstown Rebels and their own label Superfiction Recordings.
We are presenting the trippy vocals and wonky bassline of Durant’s ‘Ska!’, which also has filtered chord chops played on a guitar in the style commonly associated with Ska music, and has been appropriately titled to show this fusing of genres. Warped and brimming with individuality, the murky atmosphere of this minimal cut – a solo contribution from Marco under his Durant alias – showcases everything the Italoboyz are known for.
‘Melody Of Ska In Paradise’ EP will be available after the 1st of March HERE.
