Crosstown Rebels presents PIER BUCCI 'Familia' : US Tour Dates with Damian Lazarus


Recommended Posts

“Pier Bucci edges his way into the limelight with one of 2005’s best electronic albums. A studio wiz in love with melody, South America’s answer to Derrick May is both an innovator and a romantic. Oh , and a genius.†-FACT Magazine.

Crosstown Rebels reach a milestone as they line-up the release of the label’s first artist album with Pier Bucci, an artist considered to be one of the Chilean holy trinity of techno along with Ricardo Villalobos & Luciano. Pier Bucci ‘Familia’ is already being talked about by the great and the good as quite possibly the electronic album of the year with its emotive, South American melodies juxtaposed against the intricate electronic micro-house leanings and minimal techno excursions. The album is at once trippy and beautiful and continues the cutting edge path that the Chileans have been forging from Berlin to Ibiza to the Americas.

Two critically acclaimed EP’s already released with the Rebels, ‘Cinetico Andino’ and ‘Advanced Romance’ have both set the tone. Pier Bucci’s debut album was always going to be something special but nothing has prepared people for this. ‘Familia’ is a masterpiece from an artist at the very top of his game. Presented as a seamless piece of music, these 10 tracks overflow with the kind of harmonies and rhythms that make ‘Familia’ such a unique and trippy proposition. The perfect balance of headphone sensibility and dancefloor abandon, it sounds like nothing else on the planet. Recorded in Berlin and Paris, all tracks are new and exclusive and the album artwork is courtesy of Pier himself, a serious artist on all fronts.

The haunting vocals on ‘L’Nuit’ and ‘Tita’ are by Armelle Pioline, who has recorded with Atom Heart, and Macha who contributes vocals to ‘Hay Consuello’. Early reactions to ‘Familia’ have been electric as Pier Bucci has clearly established himself as one of the most exciting propositions in electronic music. His live show debuts in the US this November with dates accompanied by DJ darling of the underground, Crosstown Rebels boss Damian Lazarus.

“Alongside fellow Chileans Villalobos and Luciano, Pier Bucci’s become one of the most bleeding-edge artists in the ever-evolving minimal techno circuit, releasing a couple of much-lauded EPs, co-producing Lucien-N-Luciano’s 2004 LP ‘Blind Behaviour’ and now, releasing Crosstown’s first ever long player. Glitchy, melodic tech is the order of the day here… Album of the year? It’s a contender all right.â€

–I-DJ Magazine

“Apparently this musical genius is part of the same Chilean electronica scene that gave us Ricardo Villalobos and Luciano, and his music’s on a similarly fragrant tip, hazy and harmonious.â€

–VICE Magazine UK

â€For must-hear artist albums, there's Pier Bucci's electro-techno ‘Familia’.“


“…using all types of synthesizer to create his latin/microhouse hybrid that splits the difference between the dancefloor and headphones perfectly….Familia more than just a collection of dance tracks, it makes it an album. And one of the best of the year at that.â€
