Curated by respected British artist REES, Paradiso Records is famous when it comes to discovering hidden talents who deserve to be heard and releasing their works to our delight and appreciation. This time, the label presents Belgrade-based DJ and producer Ivan Rapaić. He started his music career in 2017 as a member of the duo Vietmens and had some interesting releases on Extravaganza, Smart Phenomena, Aletheia, and Asli Music. Flying solo now, he launches his new project Rapaik and makes his debut with a two-track EP called “Space Gangster”, both pack a punch of high energy melodies and nostalgia, showcasing Ivan’s proper production skills.
The tune we chose to premiere, “Electric Orgasm”, is more melodic – but more energetic – than the title track. The beautiful piano layer, the percussive elements, the throbbing bass line, and the retro-ish synth layer deliver a must-have piece for the lovers of the so-called Indie Dance scene.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
