DOOMWORK @ MUUTO
March 29, 2014
이탈리아의 듀오 Doomwork는 테크노 & 하우스 씬에서 훌륭한 트랙들로 관심을 끌며 2008년 결성 이후, 두각을 나타내 왔다.
Italian duo Doomwork have been quietly blazing a trail through the world’s techno and house scenes over the last five years, forming in 2008 and finding rapid success thereafter.
그들은 디트로이트 테크노씬의 분위기에서 큰 영향을 받았고 또한 시카고의 하우스 음악 역시 Doomwork 만의 스타일을 형성하는데 큰 영향을 끼쳤다. 또한 다재다능한 그들은 Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim 그리고 The Prodigy와 같은 대규모 사이즈의 댄스 음악에도 매료되어 많은 대중들을 열광케하는 감각을 가진 프로듀서로 성장하게 되었다. 그들이 프로듀싱을 시작한 이래, Doomwork가 남긴 흔적은 화려하다. Beatport 차트를 비롯하여, Sven Vath의 Cocoon, Steve Bug의 Audiomatique, Christian Smith의 Tronic 등이 Doomwork의 작업들에 주목하고, 러브콜을 보냈다. 그들의 야망은 분명하다.
Alessandro and Claudio found their first electronic education in the burgeoning scene of their home nation around the turn of the millenium, before looking further afield to the pioneering heritage of the Detroit techno deities. While this and a growing love of Chicago house helped to form their instincts for a meaty groove, a fascination with the vanguard of stadium-sized dance music (Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim, The Prodigy) ensured that they became producers with a dash of pop sensibility about them.
“우리는 우리만의 사운드와 훌륭한 라이브 쇼로 존경받는 아티스트가 되고 싶다. 많은 아티스트와 사람들이 벤치마크 하고 싶은 아티스트가 되는 것이 우리의 목표이며, 그러한 목표를 달성할 때 행복을 느낄 것이다”
Not that there’s anything mainstream about their slinky take on deep, melodic house and techno; more that it straddles the divide between accessible and credible perfectly. Their music is emotive and immersive, with bold melodies and riffs locked into rolling rhythms and subtle atmospherics. “Our music is ever-changing” the duo say. “We love to find new feelings from all genres and mix them in our personal point of view to give a depth touch to the tracks.”
Just a year after they started producing, they found themselves sitting at the top of the Beatport Chart with the huge Jazzy Stuff, with the biggest players in the scene singing their praises and requests coming in from some of the most acclaimed labels around for productions and remixes. 2010 saw Holland’s 2000 And One begin a relationship with the duo, showcasing several of their tracks on his 100% Pure and Area Remote labels, with Satoshi Tomiie and Hector Romero doing likewise for their SAW Recordings imprint. 2011 saw Christian Smith’s Tronic and Steve Bug’s Audiomatique snap up hot new Doomwork productions, while their stunning debut album Club Abduction was unleashed to widespread praise in 2012. An appearance on Sven Väth’s Cocoon ‘L’ compilation topped off their most impressive year so far.
Outside of the studio, they have largely concentrated on refining their stunning live set, having performed at legendary venues across the world like Barcelona’s Elrow 14, Florence’s Tenax and Tokyo’s Air Club. The dancefloor is not their only focus, however – with a burgeoning volume of work in the soundtrack area for films, computer games and the like now also filling their time. But with a new release on Audiofly’s Supernature imprint and an inclusion on Nick Warren’s latest Renaissance compilation, you can be sure that making people move their feet will be their priority for years to come.
Their ambition is simple: “We’d like to be respected artists with a recognisable sound and a great live act show. To be a benchmark in the music world is our goal and to do that would give us great satisfaction.” Given that they’ve achieved most of this already, they should probably set their sights even higher…
Most clubs in Korea open at 10 pm and close around 5~6 am
