Commitment matters. The ebb and flow of today’s music scenes are fast-paced and brittle. What comes to have meaning, and who comes to have meaning are those who cut their own way and are left standing as the waves pass. Those waves have been particularly strong when it comes to the popular acceptance of disco and its relative associations. In the US this has been driven by figures connected to, and promoted by, t he DFA label. In Europe one charact er who has continually pushed the no-wave disco and elctronic sound – under his Headman, Manhead & International cloaks – has been Robi Insinna. His quiet reward has been seeing the kids jump on the wagon. Insinna’s focus has been split between his label Relish and his own productions and remixes. The remixes have been regular, from bands looking for a dancefloor attitude such as Franz Ferdinand, Roxy Music, the Gossip , The Swiss and the Classic “Masimbabele” by The Unknown Cases, to collaborations with Soulwax and The Rapture (‘On’ 2006). Since his first solo record dropped on Gomma in 2003 he has released three more, the latest of which ‘1923’ featured thecont ribut ing t alent s of Y ello’s Diet er Meyer and t he Beta Band’s vocalist Steve Mason. Relish Recordings has also recently been busy and features new artists pushing at various envelopes: from the gimmick-free machine-funk of Daniel Avery also known as Stopmakingme, to the tight 21st C. discopop of Hannulelauri to the straight Chicago cuts of Andrea Esu and will introduced the act— Scott Fraser . October 2011 saw the release of Relish 3 Compilation. showcasing these artists along with some exciting collaborations scheduled both musically and in the art direction for the label. All this and another single from Robi himself with a great Remix package to look forward to!
