Hailing from Philadelphia, USA, Angelo Bratsis and Leon Weingrad who make up Taurus & Vaggeli have been around since mid 2007. And since late 2008, a mere year after their debut release, the two Americans have gained recogntion and support from tech-house heavy weights like John Acquaviva, Richie Hawtin, Mark Knight, Chris Lake, Manuel De La Mare and more with their neoteric twist and contributions to the tech scene. Showcasing a uniquely harder face of the subgenre currently dominated by the likes of Mark Knight, Umek and Fedde Le Grand, Taurus & Vaggeli prepare for a debut installment on the record label of Funkagenda – Funk Farm. Most likely to be released as part of the label’s upcoming compilation alongside label honcho’s own Pebbles and Aphonia among countless others, all of which have been selected by the discerning preferences of Funkagenda, Vamos is certainly going to be one of its core representatives. Weaving their spiffy and distinguished take on disco together with chunky tech beats, filtered vocal chops and pinches of distorted grooves, here’s a taste of Vamos – the latest creation from the highly underrated Americans.
‘Vamos’ is set to release on December 12th via Funk Farm.
