So it’s been a while since 8-9 July when Kappa Futur Festival 2017 happened in Turin. Meanwhile, I’ve been busy procrastinating so here are my top three tracks from the festival, delivered to you better later than never.
Seth Troxler’s b2b set with The Martinez Brothers gave me a tune to love and attach in the depth of my soul. Released by artist Kid Enigma under label Plant 74 on 11 December 2014, Dangerous is an awesome piece with smooth rhythms and lyrics to remember.
The first track from Nina Kraviz’s set is her 2014 release, IMPRV. Simply as that. Or not. Listening to it I got a slightly surreal feeling, a result of Kraviz’s seductive voice played on top of a mysterious sound resembling, in my opinion, an 80’s nostalgy. Then, in the middle of the track, there’s a change of pulse and suddenly everything becomes more awake and alert. Maybe we were in fact dreaming. Then we woke up.
And finally, there’s Joseph Capriati’s ‘one of a kind’ techno track Solar System, released back in 2012, under Drumcode label. The Italian Dj gifted the audience with this powerful tune, slightly mixing the track for the live version.
The latest track I’ve been obsessed about comes from Joseph Capriati, a name I knew nothing about or at least I haven’t payed proper attention to it till recently. My openness towards the techno side of electronic music wasn’t always there, and I could barely digest some names here and there back then. A Joseph Capriati track is not for anyone’s ear and definitely not the easiest sound to listen, but for the “grown ups” fans of electronic sounds, the harder the sound, the better it is, if you know what I mean.
Considering I am not part (yet) of that mature audience I mentioned before, Joseph Capriati turned out to be quite the character, delivering few tracks my humble soul could actually drift into.

The one I choose to share is a thrilling journey with barely any door to some normality. It brings you into a state where you simply have to accept whatever it’s given to you, exciting you with its beats and then forcing you into some sort of quietness, having no clue of what’s coming next. And yet, under all the changes of “scene”, there is consistency in the sound and every next part is crafted to be the perfect pair of the previous one. Excellent job, Joseph Capriati!
