COGNITIVA RECORDS

Bridging the Italian house tradition with a touch of modern funk, Davide Santandrea, better known as Rame, and the brothers Riccardo and Francesco Cardelli, are making a name for themselves nowadays under the Capofortuna moniker.

Mixing different experiences and backgrounds, Capofortuna channels the Italo-disco / Italian house tradition driving it towards a contemporary musical horizon made up of relentless, warm and seductive grooves performed live with instruments and analog hardware. "timeless interstellar funk, without gravity, without compromise”, this is the essence of their sound.

Capofortuna debuts on Cognitiva Records with the ‘Rising Grace EP’ that includes Three original plus a remix by Leo Mas & Fabrice. First track on A side, Just Chilling, refers to the “Chicago’s old school house”, Roland TR707 for the rhythm part, massive bass, electric piano solos merge with pads and ethereal chords, a journey!

Bouncing for the love of bouncing is a huge slice of funk fueled Italo. Sporting to monster bassline some great synths and superb leads. On the B side we find Rising Grace, the track that gives the title to the EP, overwhelming kick and bass, hypnotic afro percussions, close your eyes and you'll find yourself floating in a jungle.

The remix of Rising Grace by Leo Mas & Fabrice complete the EP. The original version is reworked giving a magical "Italo House touch” typical of their 90s productions. This is a track which it is impossible to sit still too. 

Beraber / Daisuke Kondo

Cognitiva Point Of View #1

Point of View is a new project by Cognitiva Records.It is a limited series of 150 hand-signed, 7-inch copies.
Each release will compare two artists who offer up different interpretations on one theme.

Beraber is an Amsterdam based producer and DJ that made his debut on La Freund Recordings. He also has a bi-monthly show on Red Light Radio. "Shades Play" is a relaxed and summery bedroom box jam with dusty drum boxes and analogue synths giving a biotic, soulful edge to the housey theme delivered. Composed on Juno-6, Korg M1 and TR-707, it's not a million miles away from the Mood Hut sound and delivers just as much joy.

Daisuke Kondo appeared on Bosconi Records, Altzmusic and Vibraphone, and is back here with a leftfield house jam. Wobbly and shimmering, air bubbles seem to rise to the surface of the mix while salty coastal waters ensure we're bobbing on the surface, Sun flecked rays landing on our face as we dance in the ocean.
