Deux heures de musique et de voyage dans le passé avec "Many Moods Of A DJ" que je vous recommande chaleureusement pour votre musicothèque... Respect pour ce personnage haut en couleurs qu’est DAN-E-MC, bien connu de l’horizon musical genevois et italien depuis plus de vingt ans, un pionnier des soirées Hip-Hop et House à Genève et qui avec cet opus, nous fait partager son regard et son expérience au travers de deux heures de musique spécialement revisitée. Tous les styles y passent, de la funk à la soul en passant par la house et l’acid-house, il explore également l’acid-jazz et la chill, bref il y en a pour tous les goûts ! Quelques figures locales collaborent sur cet opus comme David Cunado, présentateur de l’émission TV "Garage" sur TSR2. A son palmarès, DAN-E-MC reste un référence pour ses émissions de radi- House Machine (diffusées en Suisse aussi, sur Couleur3 et One FM). Alors si vous êtes des fans de bonne musique à l’ancienne, courrez vous procurer cet album, qui à mon avis deviendra tout aussi célèbre que son globe-trotter de concepteur! Merci à toi DAN-E-MC et que la force musicale reste et soit avec toi encore de nombreuses années."

Dan-E-Mc: "Rara Eleganza"

(Carobbio)



Produced by:


4th album in 4 years 4 House Machine's creator

The 1st "Many moods of a dj" (Mc Harmony records), surprised everybody and a track was chosen by Baileys for its Italian radio national campaign.

The 2nd "Attitude" (Mc Harmony records), went out during a party at Prince Riccione, then was promoted in Italy on Radio Monte Carlo, 2night.it Magazine and distributed worldwide by Self.it, confirmed the success of the first double-cd, also because it sold 3x more albums! The track done with Emphasisound and called "Babylon", remixed by the French talented dj Didier Vanelli, under vision of Shaftmusic.fr, obtained a little success in France during summer 2008...

The 3rd, "Blasé!" (Mc Harmony records), seemed to be (first of all) a "Best Of" because it also included old tracks, but in this opus they appeared in a remix way (all remixes already out on French label Deepfull records). Old tracks, but also new ones! All songs mixed in a perfect "House" style. The guys that were included in this project are Shaft, Didier Vanelli, Manlio Cangelli, Stone Willis, Desiree, Claudia Marchetti, Valeria Burzi, Dj Ortega, Swiss star David Cunado, De La Funk, Giampiero Mendola, Dj Rico (French producer on great english label Slip'n'slide) and Michelle.

The new cd is a big cut to "good mood, attitude and bad mood" trilogy of the 1st 3 albums and open itself to the biggest elegance... "Rara Eleganza" is the title! This opus is full of qualitative, Black and fine House emotions, with a particular attention to all musical and graphic details. All was done to give you the best for the next trip you will do, listening to this exclusive and luxurious sound...

The artist says: "After my period of "musical-philosophical reflexion" that you can find in my first three albums and after the issue in Italy of my book "Dubbi Notturni (un dj in cerca di etica)" (Statale11.it Publishing), I wanted to proceed through new ways and I feel now that it is the period that we put the mediocrity as a quality... I am fed up, that's why I decided to put the only real quality in this project, without compromises!"

The opening "yacht-party" begins with Ceejay Mc (in a Barry White style), the beginning of dance is done by a spectacular duo of Lady B & Ash on "Freak your body", "Believe" put us to the best saturday night fever period, the tracks (all sung or spoken) go on in a House-Funk & Disco (Garage & Soulful, for connoisseur) way, with sensual moments on track called "Time", to coming back to House élite sound with "The Jazz" and going until the end with Chill-House (the dj/producer is very famous for this kind of music, too). The "Bonus Track" is a live remake of a great Gap Band's track, like a cherry on a cake, this represents a promotion of the new artistical collaboration of the artist with the new Italian group, called Funky Nostra.

Here are the names of the guys involved in this project: Didier Vanelli, Shaft, Daniele Mad, Roby Groove, Lady B, Ash, CeeJay Mc and Sandrine K. The tracks have been done in the following studios: House Nation (Nice/F), Sagitaries (Geneva/CH) with Alexandre Danelon (Télévision Suisse Romande) and Alex Bagnoli from Alby Studios (Modena/I). The graphic design has been done by Studio Moroni (Bergamo/I, specialized in Design & Architecture). This album will be printed at the end of September 2009 by the historical Italian record label Molto Recordings and distributed worldwide by Self.it.

The 5th studio recorded album (a double cd with the total of 2 hours and 20 minutes of music) and a second book published after a 30 year long career as a DJ which has brought to founding the already legendary brand in 1994, recognizible by its trademark with the small house and worldwide renown as 'The' voice of House music", HOUSE MACHINE. This small introduction to present the new prestigious project of the Italian producer called DAN-E-MC.

On CD1, all the tracks are unpublished and original recordings. Its genre is a 100% Black music in all its various shades. 50% is pure Disco-Funky-Soulful-Garage-Deep-Classic-Old Skool-House while the other half is Disco-Jazz-Soul-Chill Out-Acid Jazz-Fusion-R'n B-Hip Hop-Funk. The featurings and collaborations are the following:

Kathy Brown: The undisputed American queen of House and Dance on an international level. Voice of some of the most legendary house tracks and collaborations with some of the biggest DJ's and producers of the genre, to cite a few: David Morales, Ricky Morrison, The Strings of Life and Ron Carroll. She has released tracks on prestigious labels like Defected, Cutting Records and Kontinious.

Amongst the musicians and sound engineers who've worked on this project Didier Vanelli, Alessandro Danelon, Alex Bagnoli, Lele "Ltj" Tornatore, Gabriele "Sax" Zeppegno and Michele "Wah-Wah-Funk" Gentilini.

On CD2, as a "Bonus" from Dan-E-Mc all the previous successes from his last album "Rara Eleganza" (Molto Recordings) with the released vinyl or cd single versions and remixed by some important Maestro's of its genre like:

The bonus track instead is an artistic collaboration between DAN-E-MC with an upcoming group composed by important national artists like Bruno Giordana, Stefania Garione, "Fufo" Serra e Lele "Ltj" Tornatore named Duspaghifunk, pure black sound with an Acid-Jazz flavor but as the name says completely Made In Italy!

The complete package, very well put together, also includes an homonymous book written by DAN-E-MC himself on the topic of today's society and it's lack of primary values.

In a few words, musically and artistically a timeless album of high qualities. A real collector's item. Not to be missed!

Notes of Dan-E-Mc
This project has started in the summer of 2010. It was very ambitious from the very start. It has been a private, intense, sinuous, strange, complex, tortured, tiring and unsure journey till the end. But here we are with the final project! It has been magnificent to collaborate with all the artists who took part of this project. To have their approval. To have their assurance. One by one. "I'm honored to be part of this project!", has been the most pronounced sentence during the making of " Man Of Honour"...And each step of the way having that clear sensation of working on something important. Grand, Prestigious. Thanks to all of those who've believed in it from the start. We gave it our all!! Now it's up to the public to judge. But I'm positive! In a historical period where there is a lot of ignorance and non-culture in music and literature I think the right moment has come to put the dots on the i and go back to producing art that resists in time being that we're overloaded with futile things. This also counts for our everyday life where we should go back to basing our civil concept on 'honour' between similars in a period where personal gain seems to triumph in a existence based on 'dishonour'....With my final words I cite the statement of an artist who took part of this project, once she understood the importance of this project, said: " Dan you have a mission! It's not just a musical album. It's not just a book. It's a mission!!" Dan-E-Mc "Man Of Honour" is a mission!"
