Swiss electronic duo In Flagranti are gearing up for a cassette mixtape titled Sprezzatura, and we're excited to premiere their track "Screwvenier" for our readers today. The track is a drum-driven piece that's treading the lines between disco and techno, crossing genre lines and sounding familiar and new at the same time. The juxtaposition draws the listeners in and it's catchy and complex nature also ensures that music listeners of all types are sure to find the song interesting.
In Flagranti’s Sasa Crnobrnja elaborates on the mixtape's inspiration, concept, and format:
“Back in the early 80s when I lived in Switzerland, I use to travel to Italy a lot for clubs and record shopping. In Rimini there was a great store called Disco Piu. They had this service where if you were out of town or from another country, you could sign-up and get a cassette of all the new releases in the post every week. Each new track was recorded for about a minute and there was a voice counting - so you could write down the tracks you liked - then phone or fax the track numbers and the date of the cassette, they’d send you the records and you’d pay on delivery, which was amazing So this album will be available as a mix on cassette with each track playing for a minute or two. You’re basically listening to it like a mixtape and in the same manner as the tapes from Disco Piu. You’ll be able to choose your favourite tracks from ‘Sprezzatura’ and buy the full versions as downloads.”
