    I like what I hear, and theres lots more thought put down into these productions compared to usual generic material,but I also dislike quite a bit of what I hear. I just cant stand when a really sweet wash of synths are infested with white noise for example, and alot of the climaxes are really same and anti climactic for some reason. Its too bad because large part of these tracks has a really sweet innoence and pure trance feeling about them.

    I just realised this had white noise aswell, but its sort of a different kind. Its really sneaky. I think most people dont care or notice it even.

    Everything he played was live. If you actually listen to what he said to Armin, he's not recorded any of the tracks in the studio yet & mastered them properly. So when the album comes out, I'm sure the mastering will be fine. It's not on Armada after all...

    The producer’s producer’, as he’s often referred, are really just words until you’ve empirically witnessed how Giuseppe Ottaviani does that thing he does. The divide that separates what the audience hears and how it came to be however has been one Giuseppe Ottaviani’s been chipping away at for time. 


    From audience-inspired idea-kernel to diamond-in-the-rough demo, before flaming into a fully realised floor-combustor is a typically extensive process. It’s also one that for reasons numerous is regularly hidden from end-user view. Giuseppe however sees such matters in a more progressive manner. Through ‘Evolver’ - his July-released fourth artist album, he’s sought to remove the producer/audience fourth wall down to its last brick. 



    “To me bringing the audience into the music making equation makes a great deal of sense. Short of having the ability to make music in the first place, harnessed right, it can be the artist’s greatest asset. No one is going to give you clearer notes, better pointers or more honest feedback on your music than an audience member, working synchronously with a thousand others. And obviously, at the same time, they’re the ones you have to get it right for!” 



    This reciprocal reaction is something that Giuseppe’s been exploring for as long as his self-built G.O. Live 2.0 in-club set-up has allowed. ‘Evolver’ however is his massively expanded effort to successfully turn that dynamic into a fully realised 17-track album. (Or 18, counting its included full-length album rendition mix). So, broad strokes, here’s how ‘Evolver’s evolution works…

    The essence of each one of the album’s cuts was - in one way or another - born out of Ottaviani keyboard or hardware jamming at a show. “As a DJ reads the floor, if a musician’s melody strikes a chord, you can see it right away”, he says. Then, in real time, they can develop it – getting instantaneous feedback on their on-the-fly modulations. If it’s hitting, you bring it back and develop it at the next show, and the next and the next, until your confidence in it is absolute. Then it goes into the studio, you turn on the cameras and stream live as you roll that fabric out into a fully formed track”.

    “My theory behind this method is relatively straightforward, states Giuseppe. Any piece of music that’s been rigorously clubber-tested, each step of the way it going to have extra benefits. When it’s released, he says, it’ll have greater quality due to the way its been developed and there’ll already be degrees of awareness for it. Further, in the fullness of time, it will have deeper resonance with the audience, as they become conscious of their part of it”. This is something apparently born out by ‘Panama’, ‘Tranceland’, ‘8K and – most recently – ‘Colours’, ‘Evolver’s extraordinary trailblaze of Spotify-spiking and Beatport chart topping album vanguards.


    Part desire/part ‘Evolver’s M.O., the album sees a swing back to Giuseppe’s instrumental origins, with maximum concentration placed on the power of the studio’s boxes. With no vocals to assist in the emotive support, it all comes down to his ability to summon the magic from within. Some of the cores of its tracks originated from individual shows - numbers like ‘Belasco’, ‘Soundbar’ and ‘Panama’. Others - ‘Another Day In L.A.’ and ‘Ciudad De México’ among them were developed over successive nights in specific parts of the world.
Make no mistake, this longplayer isn’t about dazzling you with studio science. It’s about a longstanding ambition to bring what happens in the production suite to a live, shared environment, whilst making the audience complicit in its mission for trance fission. 



    Giuseppe Ottaviani’s ‘Evolver’ - in ways small and large, electronic album making will never be quite the same again.

    Is it a mixed album? If not,then having the single tracks at that radio edit length is a real disappointment.

    GO is the complete DJ & Producer atm - no one else is making such high quality productions and also doing incredible live DJ sets with effects etc.

    Quite impressed with what i've heard from the mixed version of the album. My top picks are the plucky tunes - Time Shift, Belasco & Raven.
