On April 14th legendary Swiss electronic duo In Flagranti present their pre-internet-record-buying-phoneline-concept-album-come-mixtape “Sprezzatura” which will be released via Codek Records.
“Back in the early 80s when I lived in Switzerland, I use to travel to Italy a lot for clubs and record shopping. In Rimini there was a great store called Disco Piu. They had this service where if you were out of town or from another country, you could sign-up and get a cassette of all the new releases in the post every week. Each new track was recorded for about a minute and there was a voice counting – so you could write down the tracks you liked – then phone or fax the track numbers and the date of the cassette, theyâ€™d send you the records and youâ€™d pay on delivery, which was amazing”, says In Flagrantiâ€™s Sasa Crnobrnja on â€˜Sprezzaturaâ€™s inspiration, concept and format. He further explains, “So this album will be available as a mix on cassette with each track playing for a minute or two. Youâ€™re basically listening to it like a mixtape and in the same manner as the tapes from Disco Piu. Youâ€™ll be able to choose your favourite tracks from â€˜Sprezzaturaâ€™ and buy the full versions as downloads.”
