Party was extremely well attended and run without major hiccups.

There is a large movement of sound systems in Italy which are networking towards setting up parties in a free manner, empty warehouses get occupied temporarily, pieces of land in the countryside grabbed and made into citadels of illegality for a night or two.

Unfortunately there’s a lot of prejudice around this type of direct action originated, self made social events; newscasters tend to demonise such practices and to instigate the police so to intervene, to stop proceedings and to confiscate equipment.

Normally events such as these end up as intended without causing any harm nor damages to anyone, other times due to police action and/or gang infiltrations we may witness some very despicable occurrences which they all but reinforce the bad notoriety surrounding the free tekno scene in this country.

end of party

Sun is shining! Time to deal with our tired souls and with a more contingent kind of need: disassembling tons of equipment and it made it back home safely. Cool innit??

On a more personal level, what I enjoy the most in this kind of things is the fact that no money change hands in order for ALL to participate and to have fun, free music for all…thats what i like the most.

Also, the grade of determination with which everyone involved into organising these parties manage to resolve the most difficult, intricate situations acts as a potent impulse into investing, in a major renewed way, in terms of energy and in terms of reciprocal trust/respect, into creating reliable relations, into the desire of meeting new people, into the act of growing to a more informed, competent persons so as to continue in setting up pace towards my own goals , both on the creative, the ethical and on the political spectrum too.

Long live FREE TEKNO PARTIES then … as … LOVE being the sole message ❤

there’s always a lot of work that need doing the whole time: finding a suitable location, securing the location, organising the Bar, making everything to work finely on the technical side, mounting/un-mounting equipment, playing your DJ set/live P.A., managing NOT to get arrested!!! but hey…you know what? IT  DOES always WORTH MY WHILE!

a definition of DUB by Royston Blake

Leonardo's Vitruvian

This is a DJ set by Royston Blake a.k.a. Technoterra which presents a music genre loved by many : DUB.

This particular type of sound grew out of the much more popular REGGAE in the sixties, although same is considered a sub-genre DUB music has developed narratives and sound qualities which extend beyond the scope of reggae.

The DUB sound consists predominantly of instrumental versions of other, better known, tracks and is obtained by a significant manipulation of those recordings, likewise vocals get a reshaping and downsizing treatment, components such as drums and bass pattern get emphasised other sound structures get dynamically changed through effects such as echo, reverb , panoramic delay, and other types of synthetic manipulations.

DUB is today considered a form of popular electronic music and many DJ’s worldwide contribute to it further consolidating as a successful source for their dance oriented, bass driven sequences.

As some pretty weird characters dwell in and around our floors, at circa 48 minutes into the session an incredibly drunk girl pushed me off the console and decided to throw in a few loops, improvising the whole thing by the end result! The whole thing sounds disconnected to us, but,as we are fond of maintaining authenticity and variety in human behaviour we decided not to edit those attempts by Gaia ( yes, thats the young raver name ) off the miX. It does sound like you’re in there with us. Thanks for your support if u like it Hard, if you enjoy the techno Happy
