Back To Mine with Dukwa


Bill Withers – Lovely Day

It was 2009 while digging for new samples I was pleasantly caught by this masterpiece. I listen to it every day… a lovely dayyy.

Wagon Christ – Mr Mukatsuku

I love Luke Vibert, so it’s hard to choose a single track from his HUGE catalog. “Mr Mukatsuku” from his alias Wagon Christ is one of my all-time favorite tracks and also it helps me discover Jaco Pastorious as Vibert sampled him in this record.

Squarepusher – Beep Street

It reminds me of an ending sunset by the river. An absolute masterpiece from one of my favorite producers. MASTER!

Robert Glasper – So Beautiful

I went to one of his concerts in Bologna, and it was pure class. When they finish their gig, I locked eyes with him and i touched his SHOULDER! ahaha i was too shy to say hello to the master.

Jaco Pastorious – Portrait of Tracy

I have no words to describe what it is. I just want to say you MUST listen to it at least once in your life. It’s like freedom on bass (fretless)!


J Dilla – E=MC²

Unfortunately, I discovered him when he was already passed but I was trapped by his style since the first listen. I am grateful for what he left to us… his music. I got his name tattooed on my arm in 2013. Long-life to J Dilla.

Daft Punk – Voyager

Intergalactic travel while listening to this beauty of a track. I am a huge fan of Daft Punk since “Homework”. They formed my music taste back in 2002 when I was just a kid, preparing my things for school and watching MTV before going out.

Mass Prod – Bosconi Groove

He’s a friend of mine and he helped me spreading my music when i did not know anyone in the music scene. He introduced me to Bosconi Records’s boss Fabio Della Torre, and from then i started releasing my music on Vinyl!!!

Mathew Johnson – Marionette

It was 2006 when I heard this masterpiece for the first time, thanks to my brother Giacomo. The perfect mix of Techno – Melodies – Electronic. TIMELESS

Aphex Twin – Window Licker

Dukwa – Think Potential EP (Transient Nature) TN001

Transient Nature is a label dedicated to the world of machine funk with a sonic aesthetic of off-kilter techno and electro, and the first release sees Dukwa deliver an EP as varied as it is powerful. Transient Nature has a busy 2021 planned with releases from Detroit’s Scan7, Black Cadmium and Maarten’s solo project: Wanderist. The ‘Think Potential’ EP is deeply rooted in gritty electronics and illustrates the producer’s love for hardware and vintage techniques – three of the tracks are hardware jams recorded straight to tape.
The driving Rhodes licks and fluttering percussion on ‘Who Cares’ gets the EP rolling before the distorted electronica and stabbing 303s fuse harmoniously on ‘High Position’. Up next, ‘It’s U’ delivers an old-school tinged electro number with its slamming drums, robotic vocals and squeaking acid lines. The EP closer, ‘Eye2eye’ sees Dukwa moving deeper into the electronica territory with industrial drums and dreamy piano lines working together with mesmerising effect. 
With recent output ranging from Detroit house inspired MPC-driven tracks to more conceptual electronic work, Dukwa’s soulful yet dynamic releases for the likes of Numbers, Don’t Be Afraid and his eponymous imprint have won a wide range of support as well as picking up a coveted ‘Hottest Record in The World’ from the BBC’s Annie Mac. 
Dukwa’ Think Potential’ EP is out on Transient Nature now.
