ITEMS & THINGS
Items & Things is a DANCE MUSIC label founded in 06 by a Run Stop Restore (Marc Houle Magda, Troy Pierce). The label was created as an outlet for the weird, experimental and beautiful sounds the trio often come across on their travels.
Open minded musicians (or music professionals) with a desire to break the boundaries of traditional dance music models. Featuring artists: Seth Troxler, Jimmy Edgar, Click Box, Alexi Delano, Kasper, Madato, Danny Benedettini & many more to come.
Berlin imprint Items & Things reintroduced itself earlier this year with Madato’s epic EP Speak Of The She Devil. Now the label's trio of techno connoisseurs - Marc Houle, Magda and Troy Pierce - entrust their imprint to Italian up-and-comer Danny Benedettini.
Danny caught the production bug at an early age, and his taste for the old school can be heard in the throwback feel of Tell Me Quietly. It’s a retro-tinged trip through modern dance floor sounds, with slickly executed beats and tight arrangements.
“Disco Hook” takes its cues directly from its name, with a wonky take on the genre. A three-note bass loop pieces it all together, combining neon melodies with a house beat for an intriguing taste of deconstructed disco. “Nephastum” takes the disco influence even deeper, while sultry cut-n-paste voices and floating Rhodes keys.
