Feel the Drive launches label with four-track EP. First there were the parties. Then came the radio shows. Now here’s the record label. Feel the Drive is officially the three-headed beast of the underground.
Szymek Lawik and Martin Lefteri spend their lives digging up the very best Italo, New Beat and EBM delights, so a record label was the next logical move. The perfect distillation of their combined tastes and determination to search the globe for new music, the four-track debut EP features big hitters from Franz Scala , Anatolian Weapons, Furor Exotica and the label bosses themselves under their Ondata guise.
First up is Franz Scala, the Italian born and Berlin-based artist fuses psychedelia, Italo, new beat and house in productions that reference dance music’s history while remaining resolutely forward-facing. His release CV includes luminary labels such as World Unknown, Bordello a Parigi, Tusk Wax and Bahnsteig 23. His latest offering “Sabrina” is a pulsing, new beat which bolts out of the gate, setting the pace with heads-down conviction. This soon leans into guitar licks and Italo horn stabs and, before you know it, you’re transported – hugging the curves and corners along with the motorik rhythm.
Release Date 11/09/20
