Italian techno, via London, takes center stage for the 196th instalment of Global Vibe Radio as we welcome Tales Collective Founders and Superstition residents Tapefeed for a one-hour sonic exploration of their project.
The London-based, Italian-bred techno duo Tapefeed, namely Alessandro Boni and Rick Vayo have been establishing their powerfully apocalyptic broken-beats techno in the London scene before taking their characteristically raw percussive sounds onto the international dance music circuit. This ever-evolving sound comes as the pinnacle of years of musical experience: Alessandro’s as a music and art director, event organiser and avid music listener, and Rick’s as a drummer in rock bands as well as his studies in production.
Their first vinyl release in 2017 “Dawn on The Eclipse” on Metempsychosis Records including a Vril remix kickstarted a year that launched Tapefeed on the international scene with bookings like Printworks (London) Tresor and About Blank (Berlin) as well as Gem Fest (Georgia) and Elsewhere and Basement in New York City. 2019 has also seen Tapefeed’s behind-the-scenes creative processes take a steady leap forward with the transformation of their audio-visual project Tales Collective into a record label and hold a residency for Superstition at Village Underground since the beginning of 2018.
With their stamina and relentless need for innovation, Tapefeed are always evolving, creating and looking out for their next sonic journey.
Founded in London, Tales Collective aims to encapsulate the sound of a movement through the individual vision of each contributing artist. What began as a an audio/visual project is now a record label spearheaded by Tapefeed.
“There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” ― C.G. Jung
