The 2017 edition of the Italian electronic and experimental music festival FAT FAT FAT run by the Italian collective Harmonized Soundsystem has again exceeded all expectations. From August 4-6 we experienced the mix of musical quality and an unbelievable setting between the historical piazza of the medieval town Morrovalle and a beautiful old farm site in Corridonia, on the Adriatic coast of Italy. This festival convinced in his only second edition with a high-end line up including the likes of the Yussef Kamaal Trio, Nightmares on Wax, Funkineven, the incredible Jayda G or the producer-collector Awesome Tapes from Africa. Continuing on this track it will be no wonder to soon find the FAT FAT FAT among the best-curated alternative electronic music festivals in Europe.

Interview with the Chicago house legend Jamie Principle

This year at the amazing Into the Valley festival in Sweden we had the chance to talk to one of the early innovators of Chicago House music, the legendary Jamie Principle. After enjoying his magical live performance where we felt transported back to the beginnings of the raw house in the 80s, we met up with Jamie and his manager Maria from NY based Def Mix records. The two of them welcomed us warmly and we felt like being friends all over the interview. To start with, we passed Jamie our questions and gave him the freedom to speak about whatever comes to his mind, and so he started to tell us his very unique history…
