Italian duo Doomwork have been quietly blazing a trail through the world’s techno and house scenes over the last five years, forming in 2008 and finding rapid success thereafter.
Alessandro and Claudio found their first electronic education in the burgeoning scene of their home nation around the turn of the millenium, before looking further afield to the pioneering heritage of the Detroit techno deities. While this and a growing love of Chicago house helped to form their instincts for a meaty groove, a fascination with the vanguard of stadium-sized dance music (Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim, The Prodigy) ensured that they became producers with a dash of pop sensibility about them.
Not that there’s anything mainstream about their slinky take on deep, melodic house and techno; more that it straddles the divide between accessible and credible perfectly. Their music is emotive and immersive, with bold melodies and riffs locked into rolling rhythms and subtle atmospherics. “Our music is ever-changing” the duo say. “We love to find new feelings from all genres and mix them in our personal point of view to give a depth touch to the tracks.”
