Henry Johnstone, Sydney - Australia - on 14/8/12
DJ, producer and Italians Do It Better label boss Mike Simonetti has founded another project - a brand new label he's named after his home town of New Jersey, called, um, 'New Jersey'.
In an interview with FACT, Simonetti spoke of his reasoning behind New Jersey and why it was necessary to make it separate from IDIB.
“Italians Do It Better has become intentionally more and more insular, both in sound, scope and choice of artists we release," he explains. "With the increased visibility of Italians, and the changing fanbase due to the success of Drive, Desire and Chromatics, we felt we should keep the label very tight and focus on the core groups."
The new imprint will have a focus on house and techno, as opposed to the Italo disco and indie sounds from Italians Do It Better, with the first 12" a new collaborative effort between Simonetti himself and Monty Luke under the name 'Billions & Billions'. You can stream below.
