RESET! is a 4 dj's/producers collective based in Milano.
Whether it’s in the studio, behind the decks or promoting their own nights, Reset! have established themselves as an A-List act, regularly pulling in more than 2000 clubbers to their own infamous parties in Milan and clocking up the air miles playing some of the biggest parties around the world, from Hard in Los Angeles to Pacha's Closing party in Ibiza, from their Australia and South Asia own tour to the big Uk festivals.
Started 2007 as a party, RESET! became one of the best events in town, gathering a mixed up crowd - from indie rockers to b-boys, oldschool ravers to students - with its funk-driven electronic music, from Nu Disco to Bassline and everything in between, and taking place in the most different venues: from small underground clubs to wearhouses, from Parco Sempione (with 5000+ people!) to Magazzini Generali, the most prestigious venue in town.
In 2009, after developing as the leading alternative electronic dance music event in Milano, four members of the crew summed up their unique experience in music (everyone has a long term past in the italian industry as producer, dj, composer or sound engineer, mostly in the hiphop scene) in order to build RESET! as a music project.
Indeed it was after playing alongside house legends Cassius that Reset! were invited to rework the French duo's anthemic "Youth, Speed, Trouble, Cigarettes" that got instant support from big djs, remained on Beatport's Indie Dance Top 10 for several weeks and featured on Mixmag cover CD.
Following this breakthrough Reset!’s unmistakable funk yet banging sound has been in constant demand with the boys adding their Italian touch to a string of remixes for the likes of Fatboy Slim, Audio Bullys, Robyn, Fenech Soler, Mad Decent, Bingo Players and once again Cassius, remixing the house classic Cassius 99.
Meanwhile they released 4 EP's on Herve's Cheap Thrills label, making their unique blend of huge basslines, epic breakdowns, 70's funk samples, big melodic sensibility and groovy beats - i.e. what the band defines 'Turbofunk' sound - gain an endless list of top supporters as Busy P, Justice's Xavier De Rosnay, Faithless, Armand Van Helden.
Late 2011 they developped their unique live show. Already tested it with great success on a raving 2000 people crowd in Milano, they play with a full band: seven elements on stage, with drum, guitars, synths, talkbox, turntables, singers and visuals to merge the power of electro with a strong rock attitude.
Currently Reset! are busy finishing their first full album: 'We tried to push the boundaries of composing club music with a more musical approach, with a lot of arrangement and vocals, mixing synths with real instruments (saxophones, guitars and talkbox) into more complex songs that keep evolving and changing from beginning to the end, having a broad range of influences - from old school funk to cosmic disco, 70's rock with some prog moments to 90's hip hop - while keeping our solid RESET! sound' , the band says.
