Reset! - A 5-man collective of DJs, producers and party promoters based in Milan - are renowned both for their spectacular and sweaty club nights and for pioneering the 'Turbofunk' genre - a bass-heavy fusion of disco and electro which has seen massive support from the likes of Justice, Herve, Annie Mac, A Trak, Crookers and Cassius.
'Wind Up' sees Reset! team up with legendary Jamaican ragga MC Daddy Freddy - a seminal player in integrating Jamaican vocals into electronic music (and 4 times breaker of the record for world's fastest rapper!). The infectious ragga party anthem is accompanied by an awesome leftfield video shot in Los Angeles by female Italian art promo maker Spaghetto. It features a 2 very contrasting Compton Barbeque parties being very literally crashed by a giant (cuddly) spider who has just accidentally killed a unicorn. No, we don't totally understand it either, but we suspect there may be undercurrents of the battle between the ways of good and evil. Make your own mind up!
The flip side track 'Escape' sees Reset! in more exploratory mood taking their Turbofunk stylings on a cross-genre multi-tempo journey that takes in elements of Hip Hop, Acid, ItaloDisco and Jazz while not losing sight of its core anthemic synth hook.
