Neve is back to The Dreamers! He’s the man behind this label, responsible for A+R, mastering and promotion of the music you hear, in synergy with all The Dreamers Crew. In the last year, after the acclaimed “Magic Flute” and his single on The Dreamers, Neve released various collaborations on labels such as Shogun Audio, The Dreamers and Delta9.
With this new release Neve defines again his trademark sound, with influences from 90s music, house, jungle and warm analog frequencies, projected in futuristic sonic spaces. The title “The Message” has a deep meaning for Neve: in his own words “the music is one of the main communication media, and on this EP I decided to explore the harmonies and mellow sounds because I want to send a positive hopeful message, with a good vibration”. His work really reflects the vibe of The Dreamers renowned parties and in this EP it is possible to find 4 tracks, each one with his own characteristics that can work both on the radio and on the dancefloor. The EP starts with “Oak City” a dreamy halfstep deep bass track where the main sound is generated by an 808. “Everytime” is a melodic roller made in collaboration with Wild Hits and Norah B. “Reanimate” has some experimental drums and hard basses but it keeps the colourful melodic sound of the EP. “The Message” is the last track of the EP and encloses in its piano riff all the emotions that Neve wants to express.
Neve aka Andrea Recla is a dj, producer and sound engineer born and raised in Rovereto, in the Italian region of Trentino Alto Adige. Surrounded by music ever since he can recall, he started playing guitar for locals bands at the age of 15 but it wasn’t long until he fell in love with drum and bass. In the last 13 years he performed in many clubs, festivals and parties in Italy and abroad.
Neve spent 4 years in the city of Turin, setting up drum and bass events with The Dreamers, one of the most long-standing crews in Italy dedicated to this genre. Even tough he moved back home now, he’s still very connected to this city and keeps on being part of the management.
In 2016, with the support of all the member of the crew, he created The Dreamers Recordings. Providing high quality ground breaking music and supporting Italian newcomer producers was -and still is- the goal of the label, which immediately received the appreciation of international top djs and press.
This year Neve won the Redbull Culture Clash of Milan, with the ‘Hellmuzik’ team, playing in the first round.
Years of experience as a dj made Neve’s sound a patchwork of styles and genres. Old school and new school blend in, while rolling, footwork, jungle, hip-hop and neurofunk mix mercilessly. And this variety of sound is reflected in his production: to make only one ‘type’ of drum and bass is like a musical limit for his open mind.
Currently, his releases appears on labels such as Hospital - Med school, Shogun Audio, Dutty audio, Flexout, Ammunition, Subculture, Automate, Modulate and Bnc Express and have been played on DNBARENA, KMAG and Friction show on BBC Radio 1, receiving support from many top dj’s.
