SEM002 - Artist L'N'F
SEM001 Artist - Marco Repetto
Swiss Electronic Music Marco Repetto 04/ 2019 It’s with emotion and excitement that we announce SEM001, the first release of brand new label Swiss Electronic Music, produced by none other than Marco Repetto, an electronic and techno legend from Bern that made the history in the Nineties with its labels Axodya and Inzec and a lot of records out on other eminent planetary labels, from Rephlex in UK to Superstition in Germany and again Generator in Detroit and Disturbance in Italy, to name a few of them. After the debut in the late Seventies as a drummer in the punk bands Glueams and Grauzone, Repetto became involved in electronic music at the end of the Eighties starting covering all spectrums from techno to experimental and all the genres and subgenres you could imagine, as a solo artist or collaborating with likeminded producers from all over the world, such Stefan Riesen (together they made the classic “Purple Universe” album as Synetics on Rephlex in 1993) or an electronic giant as Bruno Spoerri (in trio with Daniel Wihler in the “Island Of Lost Tapes” album on Inzec in 2000).
We’re honored now to see Marco Repetto at the top of his creative power for the first chapter of Swiss Electronic Music, a new label created by Andrea Festa that will be dedicated exclusively to artists from Switzerland, with the album ““Eta Aquariids””, a collection of tracks that represent the deepest side of Marco, an advanced picture full of night techno jams and rhythmic explorations that are living in a zone between electronics and Psichedelia and so many other different tones and flavors. A true album from a true artist, the better way to start a label. Welcome to Switzerland!

An EP full of great music, from the sunrise mood of Phase 1 to the deep bass adventure of Erriapus, the mechanic techno-funk of Weird Clouds, a track done with Eisentanz, and a dreamy, acidic beauty like Connection Lost, to the tension of Survive and the room of mirrors of The D. One X Code. You can’t miss it!
We’re very proud to present the new SEM release, a special joint venture between Detroit and Lugano. Inner Beauty by detroitian maestro Terrence Dixon, with its hypnotic, oscillating vibes, the psychedelic spoken voice and the skeletal rhythm, is an astounding masterpiece that was published for the first time in 2012 on AFR, the first label by Andrea Festa, and became rapidly a classic for all techno DJ’s, played also by Nina Kraviz in her 2015 Boiler Room in Edinburgh. Now we have this cult track in the Terrence Dixon original version, and in a new respectful remix made in Lugano by Andrea Festa that keeps the original structure using a groovey old-skool beat and working the sounds on a lower tone. Two versions that are perfect to mix creating a proper trippin’ flux. Adding to this package the original B-side of the 2012 release, Education Feet Conversion by Andrea Festa, a jazzy, electronic, ghetto track, a fantastic DJ tool. You can’t miss it!
