HEX Recordings: PØLI, Lorenzo Raganzini – El Trapezista (Official Videoclip)

VIDEOCLIP
Behind this minimalist video, PØLI and Lorenzo Raganzini are conceptualising the idea of the artist-object. “He” becomes “It”, with no feelings and almost no soul. Just a single object exposed to the love, obsession, judgment or even hate felt by his public. This love which can be so intense, so strong that it could destroy It.
With this absurd scenario, HEX wants to break this idea and finally make ravers and artists equal by giving to the music and the respect of human beings all the meaning of techno.

TRACK
This track was thought with the aim of being an emotional intro. The starting point of its creation are the voices recorded at the local circus of the small town, located one hour from Madrid, where PØLI and Lorenzo Raganzini went on a retreat to produce the EP. The intention of the track is to replicate the same tension that the trapezist feels during his performance, when he goes back and forth between stressful moments and the pleasure felt when walking on the thin rope in a successful way. In the same way, “El Trapezista” moves the listener from one feeling to the other by stimulating the ears with a pulsating and breathtaking heartbeat.

HEX Recordings: PØLI, Lorenzo Raganzini – Raving In Paris (Official Videoclip)

VIDEOCLIP
Filmed between Barcelona and Paris, this is the first official videoclip of HEX Recordings, which represents the strong connection of the two raving cultures, the French and the Spanish one.

TRACK
After a trip to Paris, PØLI and Lorenzo decided to stamp their experience and respect for the French rave culture forever on a musical piece. A culture based on a mix of different types of people with varied lifestyles that dance to the hardest beats for days and feel unified by the music. This track is a restless sequence that keeps the energy to the maximum level from start to finish and includes a 90’s-influenced drum and bass break, along with some background voices dictated by PØLI.

For another edition, DGTL Barcelona took place at Parc Del Fòrum, an enormous concrete park on the very limits of the catalan capital. The location could be described as intriguing, labyrinthine and industrial, perfectly fitting the underground Techno style of the artists at the Generator Stage.
