RESET! is a collective based in Milano, made of 4 djs, producers and promoters.
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 L.A. to Pacha's Closing party in Ibiza - two own tours in Australia and Asia and some big Uk festivals.
Started in 2007 as a party, RESET! became one of the best events in town, gathering a mixed up crowd - from indie rockers to b-boys, old school 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.
Meanwhile, after developing as the leading alternative electronic music event in Milano, they started to build RESET! as a music project summing up their long time experience as producers.
Indeed it was in 2009 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.
They released music on some of the world's best labels - including 4 EP's on Cheap Thrills and several songs on Southern Fried, Dim Mak, Ministry Of Sound Australia - defining since their very first tunes their signature "Turbofunk" sound (a unique blend of huge basslines and melodic hooks, 70's funk samples and shuffling beats) and gaining an endless list of top supporters like Annie Mac, Armand Van Helden, Madeon, Busy P, Justice's Xavier De Rosnay, Faithless, a steady airplay on BBC1 and several songs on Beatport Top 100.
Their Bosco Delrey remix was included in Mad Decent compilation Vol.1 by Diplo and in an Italian Adidas commercial, while their raving remix for Hervé's “Blaze It” was included in the official Gran Turismo 5 soundtrack.
Late 2011 they developped their unique live show 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.
In 2013 they were signed with SONY Italy, releasing their first single on a major label: "I Need You", supported by a great video shot in LA, a remix competition launched by MTV and and got chosen by the brand JDC for a national TV campaign.
May 20th they released their first full album on SONY MUSIC.
'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.
The album hosts a great variety of collaborations: from uk new wave legend Paul King to US hip hop veterans Erick Sermon (EPMD) and Keith Murray, MIA's collaborator Afrikan Boy to soul singers Lisa Kekaula (Basement Jaxx), Caprice and Daniel Pearce and some of the most influencial Italian rappers like Guè Pequeno, Noyz Narcos, Clementino, Ensi.
