A premonitory one of the Italian goddesses-jay...
ha begun when still not there were neither mixer neither cap!
Before years seventy the discotheque did not exist. In "it
knows them from dance" reigned music from the alive one.
Subsequently, they were begun to dance discs, in alternative
or like musical pause of the orchestras. Here to esordire
the first goddesses-jay. They had "to put on" discs,
simply one after the other... Daniele Baldelli at least begins
its career in 1969 (as "you put discs" had not been
still coined the Disc-Jockey word, in Italy) to the Taboo
club of Catholic, on the adriatic coast.
The discs were all 45 turns of rock,
funk & soul. The trade of the DJ was still all to invent,
Daniele Baldelli was alone: with its fantasy, its wants of
music, its technical search, the passion and the instinct,
has experienced all the musical styles without having modules
or models of reference. In 1970 the music that Daniele played,
could perhaps be divided in two great types: music White woman,
of European origin, and Black music of origin American. He
always speaks himself about 45 turns and Americans stirred
themselves of European discs, that they were nearly always
canzonette glad and trades them, with discs soul, rhythm&blues
and funky of artists which: Arthur Conley, Joe Tex, Wilson
Pickett, James Brown, Rufus Thomas, Lyn Collins, etc. Naturally
to reperire this material was not always easy.
Daniele frequently went to Lugano and
Paris where he succeeded in reperire import discs. An other
particular one of the evenings in discotheque in years 70
was that the fast music that was danced as "shake"
it came alternated from discs of a valve. The proportion was
of 5 shake and 5 discs of a valve, then, with passing of the
years, thirty minuteren of shake and 3 discs of a valve. In
1977-78 it lands to the Bay of the Angels (with to an other
dj, Claudius Rispoli, in Mozart art). It was the period of
the disc music and the philadelphia sound. It comes therefore
noticed and engaged for being the dj resident of the COSMIC
that comes inaugurated in you open them 1979.
And it is here that that incredible phenomenon
is born that came then called "AFRO" and more recently
"COSMIC SOUND". The "africanismo "Daniele
Baldelli, expressed it when it played the Bolero di Ravel
overlapping it to a brano of Africa Djola, or a piece experiences
them of Steve Reich on which mixava a" Malinke song "of
New Guinea. Mixando the T-Connection with Moebious and Rodelius,
discovering in the album Izitso the only ipnotico-tribale
brano of Cat Steven, extracting Africa in the Depeche Mode
playing them to 33 turns or viceversa making to become music
one played voice reggae to 45 turns, mixando one score of
brani Africans on one same pattern of battery electronic or
playing with one batucada with Kraftwerk, using the electronic
effects of a sintetizzatore for sovrapporli to brani of Miram
Makeba, Jorge Ben or Fela Kuti or still listening to the Indian
melodie of Hofra Haza or Sheila Chandra with the sonorità
electronic of the Sky German Record.
Armed with its plates Technics Sp-15,
battery electronic Korg, sintetizzatore Yamaha, the first
rudimentali samplers and insepara- the equalizzatore bile
Teac, Daniele Baldelli begins one experimentation total stirring
entirety funky, reggae, jazz, fusion, brasil, dub, etno, tribale.
All abundantly accompanied from music the electronic one and
one maniacale predilezione for the "mixaggio": all
this has rendered it sure indiscusso a founder...!!!
