Born out of a desire to share lost sounds from the 90s with new, discerning ears, return_backspace is a fresh record label dedicated to raw electronic music imbued with a natural naivety that came with creating during this period. Many of the records penned for release didn’t get the appreciation they deserved at the time — the label are on a mission to rectify that.
For their first outing, a nine-track release broken down into a trio of EPs, they hone in on a collection of early compositions from planet love, the guise of Bern-based Italian Marco Repetto. The first of the three releases, new era, documents recordings made between ‘90 and ‘92, introducing the audience to Repetto’s future-facing, soulful take on techno and electro. Through employing advanced production techniques for the time, he blends celestial soundscapes with soaring pads and warm bass, resulting in three singular tracks that ultimately feel timeless.
new era will be out on return_backspace on the 15th November.
