Our fourth exclusive IA MIX comes from Radovan Scasacia AKA Secondo. Radovan is joint founder of London’s Dreck Records. Radovan employs a unique approach to creating music. Secondo just one of his guises, you can also check out Radovan’s even more experimental sound project AM / PM.
Under the Secondo moniker Radovan carefully slices up minute fragments of sound, be it jazz, disco or funk and rearranges each element on his palette of sound to compose what can only be called an intriguing mix of splice and funk.
We caught up with Secondo earlier in 2009 to find out what was happening with Dreck Records. Some of you may have noticed a slight quiet patch for the label, but rest assured Dreck have some fine tracks up their sleeves to release early 2010 distributed through Rubadub.
“I’ve recorded this mix two nights after our monthly Ritmo party, many records on there came straight out of that night’s record bag. I was definitely still in Ritmo-mode while recording. The mix happened quite spontaneously, without thinking too hard beforehand what I was going to play. I quite enjoy recording a mix this way as it’s similar to the situation in the club, with the one big difference that at home you’ve got your entire record collection at your disposal, which doesn’t necessarily make it easier. All the tracks are played from vinyl, I still can’t work those CDJs out…”
