Pressure Point

Since he began spinning minimal and house records at friends’ parties in 2014, Pressure Point, the Italian DJ-producer also known as D:fferent Place, has never really locked back. Shirking away from the limelight that many of his compatriots have pursued, he’s instead released a stream of quality EPs that stylishly blend the the two genres that kick-started his journey in music nearly two decades ago. Next up is Ghost on Tape, a four-track outing on Pluie/Noir—a label in Berlin, one of Pressure Point’s former homes. It follows a collaborative track with Christopher Ledger on DeWalta‘s Meander.

Recorded last last month in celebration of the upcoming EP, Pressure Point’s XLR8R podcast is full of the complex compositions and deep melodies he’s known for. Much like Telharmonic Texture, it shines on a light on Pressure Point’s favorite artists: you’ll hear music from Edward, Youandewan, and Thomas Melchior, any many more. Fortunately, these are also some of XLR8R‘s favorite voices, so we’re also a big fan. Press play for just over an hour of wonky, effortless minimal groove.

DXLREC003 / Pressure Point – Wrong System EP

Pressure Point - Wrong System EP

"DXLREC003"

Parisian label DXL Records signs a new exciting release in collaboration with Pressure Point, rising star of the italian scene. He delivers three elegant dancefloor weapons. Showing his ease to navigate between energetic house and delicate techno with some mystical minimal touches, he shows a part of his complex yet fascinating musical universe. The release is completed by a Spacetravel remix in which the wizard makes a deep invitation to get lost in trippy modular sounds.

“Fascinating musical universe

Premiere

A1 – Pressure Point – Timepiece 

Pressure point joins the experienced roster of producers, reviving his more experimental alias after three sold-out releases, including the previously featured D:fferent Place. ‘Timepiece’ showcases the versatility of his productions in this emotive banger.

Dreamy, uplifting synths gleam in conversation with a shifty bassline that could slot delightfully into a peak time DJ Masda set. Drum sounds are sharp, with a mean swing bringing a dusty, raw contrast to the euphoric mood of the track.

Timbres host a classic, retro aesthetic that takes ear with a multitude of scenes. Early support comes from Petre Inspirescu, setting the tone with ‘Timepiece’ at last year’s Epizode festival. Melodies have inoffensive and uplifting energy, shaping neat acid lines and featherweight string pads.

‘Wrong System’ ventures into darker, menacing territories, with an eerie wind chime melody springing above a paranoid bassline. ‘Tom Cat’ adds more depth to the release with a deep, heads down workout, alongside a ferocious remix from Spacetravel.
