Davide Squillace joins forces with Marcelo Burlon to announce collaborative ‘Gaulicho’ project 

Country of Milan label-owner Marcelo Burlon has teamed up with producer and DJ Davide Squillace for a unique collaborative project, ‘Gualicho’.

Launched at Colette in Paris on the 30th September, the collaboration is comprised of a single release and a limited edition run of t-shirts and USBs in a sleek collector’s box. With high-end streetwear meeting the very best of techno, ‘Gualicho’ symbolises both Marcelo’s and Davide’s mutual passion for hybridising electronic music with art and cultural motifs to provide a rare insight into the pair’s reciprocal relationship.

Both DJs and creatives amongst many other things – Marcelo cut his teeth as a DJ and PR before forming his laudable County Of Milan label, and Davide an esteemed producer, DJ and head of artistic think-tank This And That Lab – their collaboration pays homage to their individual strengths.

In its production form, Marcelo & Davide have offered up a tribal techno rhythm that’s built around a cosmic lead bassline and powerful drum beats. Sophisticated and atmospheric, ‘Gualicho’ showcases Davide’s ability to craft techno that maintains the soul of Burlon’s artistry – with the release also forming the soundtrack to his women’s collection recently shown in Milan. Translating into physical form, Gualicho’s branding is an amalgamation of Burlon’s striking wing motif and Davide’s musical influences, represented via various DJ iconography, drawing influences from tribal cultures and tropical colours that are designed to reflect the soul of the project.

Yuri Jones – “Running” prod. Blair Taylor

Reaching Higher PR presents New Orleans talent @yuritheartist with his debut video and single for “Running”. The music is produced by Los Angeles based musician @blairtaylor, and the visuals are cinematically shot to isolate Yuri as an unforgettable new artist with a distinct voice.

Hailing from the 7th Ward in New Orleans, Yuri Jones has a story of trial and tribulation matched by personal resilience as an artist. The musician and poet was relocated after Hurricane Katrina to Houston, Texas. Soon after, he was diagnosed with cancer, and twice defeated it. All the while, he never lost hope and continued writing poetry and songs.

InvadeNola.com asked Yuri what motivates him as an artist? He replied, “I’m inspired by waking up in a world of joys and sorrows, successes and failures, victories and defeats. There’s always a story to be told, whether it be my own or the story of someone I’ve never met. Everyday deserves a different page in my notebook.”

John Digweed Live In Argentina

This one not only includes 4 CD’s but also a DVD, which he has released a little teaser.

THRILL & Rxn – Ahiga (Original Mix)

Quickstrike is back this week with another original track from our artist Thrill. Thrill has had some great success with some of his previous tracks. His last single “Everlasting Love” reached #11 on Beatport’s progressive House charts.

I would love it if you could give his new track “Ahiga” a listen and if you feel like it’s up to speed with what you are posting, we would love to see it up on your site.

Please let me know what you think either way as we are always trying to provide our artists with as much feedback as possible.

If you have any questions or requests for Thrill, please let me know and I would be happy to set up an interview. I apologize for the very PR sounding e mail and if there is a better way to submit music to your outlet let me know. At Quickstrike we want to change the way blogs and artists work together and we always hope to suggestions and feedback from the people we share our music with.
