At the end of August, Israeli psych-electronic duo Red Axes and Italian house producer, DJ & label owner, DJ Tennis announced they were joining forces at Redrago and releasing a self-titled album this month. Some details have emerged about the LP, but there has only been one single released thus far. We are proud to present single number two, “Il Veliero” (the club mix) with the full album coming this Friday, October 11 via DJ Tennis’ Life and Death imprint.
If you are somewhat familiar with these three artists, then you know there will be something a little different from the standard four on the floor beats by their contemporaries. “Il Veliero” is a journey through house, psychedelic rock and a bit of acid. It feels like a journey through some of the tripper parts of Alice & Wonderland.
It starts out with shimmering fx and sturdy drums before (d)evolving with synths spiraling down into a funky bassline, roosters crowing and harp fluttering in the background. Distorted guitar and acid provide the groundwork for someone singing in a psych-rock electronica track that provides a new twist around every turn.
“Il Veliero” will be released this Friday, October 11. Pre-order Reddrago’s album here.
