Fabrizio Carioni is a former student of R12 and now he begins to take his satisfaction with a series of interesting releases.
"Call It a Day", due out next January 6 through Beatport, is Fabrizio Carioni's production on WKB Records. Carioni is a former student of R12 and now begins to take his satisfaction with a series of interesting releases. His track was composed towards the end of the summer in Ibiza, where he lives and works most of the year. "I made it entirely with Ableton Live, in the box," he explains. "I use some Push type controllers but no synths or external effects. My setup is absolutely minimal. Certainly influenced by the nights spent in the underground, I threw down the base loop of 'Call It A Day' and 'Subsequence', another song but released at the end of January and included in an ep ". The final mix was then done in Milan in his home studio, while for the mastering Carioni turned to MEP Studio .
Originally a bass player, Carioni grew up listening to Frank Zappa, King Crimson and Weather Report, a world far removed from tech-house or the deep he loves today. "Baggage from which I often draw, or at least try. I approached the world of electronics through acid jazz and its surroundings discovering that it was possible to make music without depending on the commitments of the individual elements of a band ... traditional. After some experimentation I decided to take a course as a producer in R12 in Milan, a great experience where I got all the basic tools to be able to further study independently ". He then met Big Brain Audio in Berlin for some insights. Moving to Ibiza, he collaborated with several local underground labels, such as Panmusic Club Records, Ibiza Dance Music, Haustronaut. "In 2016 I made a dozen releases and had a lot of fun making me some bones as a producer. With 'Call It a Day' I open the catalog of my personal label, the WKB Records ".
