Cadenza Records is finally delivering the much expected release from Michel Cleis & Salvatore Freda. Both of them are fierce activist of the Lausanne electronic music scene since more than a decade. For sure you definitely danced already on Michel Cleis music last summer. His unreleased underground hit La Mezcla was on non spot rotation all around the glob from Ibiza to Tokyo and is supported by various dj’s such as Radio Slave, Ricardo Villalobos, Loco Dice or Luciano to name a few. Salvatore Freda has grown up with house music and has been digging Detroit Techno music with a passion since the very late 80’s. This italian native, Lausanne born man loves to push his various influences into new grounds, blending warm percussive elements with soulfull vibes, which have already been appreciated on recent releases for Liebe Detail, Music Man and Freerange. This Uva Fragolina EP is the powerful result of Michel & Salvatore’s first musical collaboration. On A side you’ll get a five star house track surrounded by acoustic precussions and an hypnotic synth pad which you’ll remember when you’ll wake up the day after. It’s all about musical power. Keep this in mind !Collivo, the B side track, still got this strong synthesizer pad direction with a little something from Detroit on top. Acoustic percussion is still on the rise. Nothing is overdone production wise. The balance is just perfect. Enjoy ! SUPPORTED BY DENNIS FERRER, LUCIANO, D’JULZ, REBOOT, GUY GERBER, RARESH, KIKI, REINER TUERBY, DEETRON AND SASCHA DIVE. Keep your eyes open on the next Cadenza Records release. Much surprise are getting ready for the pleasure of your dancers.

CADENZA32 in the media

2000 and one (Intacto): “very groovy tribal tune. will play both sides!!!”

Adultnapper: “By far the best Cadenza in a long while. Lush, musical, and emotional..these two jams have epic written all over it...one of the best records in recent memory....”

Anja Schneider: “Played "Sassicaia" @ Dance Under The Blue Moon, Fritz Radio 102,6 Mhz.”

Fe=derico Molinari (Oslo): “nice record, remains me the old Luciano stuff.”

Giles Smith (DJ MAG): “Newcomers Cleis and Freda who have both released separately on the likes of Liebe Detail and Freerange get together here for the first time on Cadenza. As one would expect this ep has the label's signature style very much in mind. "Sassalica" is rolling, warm, percussive and playful, offset with delicate sparkly synths. However its "Collivo" on the flip that gets my vote. More immediate, stomping tribally kicks and bass get things going with some heavy shaker action. The icing on the cake is the magical, hypnotising synth melody that becomes the centrepiece of the track. This took the roof off secretsundaze last week. Essential.”

Jamie Jones (Crosstown Rebels,: “Really like the b side, good grooves. cheers.”

Jimpster (Freerange): “Pure class on this one from two of my favorite producers. Uva Fragolina oozes with soul and a kind of Detroit sounding magic. works beautifully on the dnacefloor too.”
