Etching a musical partnership that draws from the combined roots of IDM, house and techno, Mind Against are the Italian native but Berlin based project of Alessandro and Federico Fognini. They carved a path for themselves with a series of three EP’s on Life and Death. Their debut Atlant, the follow up Avalon and the latter Strange Days were let loose to critical acclaim. Since then calling the label their home, the duo now takes part in the management and A&R. 2015 came with a celebratory occasion marked by a collaborative EP with Belgian producer Locked Groove, released on Hotflush Recordings. The duo released in July their new single Vertere on Life and Death, where they joined forces with Italian techno artist and friend Somne. The biggest cliché of a “sound that’s hard to pin down”, is realer than gravity when it comes to Mind Against. They coax on psychedelic hooks of the 1980s and dance floor anthems bound traditionally to European soil. This backdrop makes for releases and performances that do well against any canvas.
