Alan1 – Concertmate (Maxi)

Alan 1-final-1200x1200

Cat#: GOMMA DT025
Release date: 27 December 2010

We are happy to release the first Gomma E.P. of 24 year old electronic funk talent Alan1 from Rome. Concertmate includes 3 new tunes + a remix by Bobermann (from Bloody Beatroots). Included also is Sniff Them: A heavy functional clubtune that already was released on an limited vinyl edition by Final Frontier Records. The track can cause big damage on the dancefloor…but only a few people could get hold of it till Gomma decided to release it again.

But the real special thing are the other tracks: Alan1 makes music that is some times serious, then ironic, melodic but still groove oriented. Analogue synths and digital post-production… electro-funk, Chicago, electronica, jazzdisco, acid-house… Whatever you call it.. it is simply sexy Italian dancefloor music… it sounds new and it sounds nice.
