Following on from label head Luca Bacchetti’s exquisite ‘OVO’ EP, ENDLESS is proud to present the debut release from All Is Well – a brand new project from a revered veteran who for now will go unnamed…
All Is Well is a new project from an experienced hand in the music industry, with a back catalogue stretching back two decades. But with such an established position – arguably – comes creative restraints. Being able to take a step back, assess and approach a new project with no guidelines, boundaries or stress is refreshing for an artist. For those well known, the ability to create and release a project under a new name can also be hugely liberating.
"Sometimes we go with what we think people expect from us and then profess to be held back by creative barriers, when in fact these barriers are always creations of our own. A new name is like wearing a mask to a party, acting a different way and observing the reactions." – All Is Well
And so comes the ‘Hope All Is Well’ EP, a sublime three tracker that continues ENDLESS’ short history of releasing music that encapsulates an otherworldly beauty. The title track is a smooth deep dancefloor cut driven by a catchy chord pattern and crisp beats, while ‘Vabene’ encapsulates a rare exquisiteness with it’s chugging bassline and evocative melodic keys and already has a special place in clubbers’ hearts and minds after it was the opening track of Luca’s lauded set at Sunday Debauchery in NYC in June – a set he rates at the finest of the year so far.
The EP is rounded out with the outstanding ‘La Valse De La Pertinence’ that’s led by a call-and-response dual bass and key melody that drives the cut, making it simultaneously groove-ridden and sublime and spacey.

All Is Well's EP will be out July 2014. 3 wonderful tracks from a secret producer, 'cause we love the element of surprise!
By now we have become used to sudden changes of direction; but we’d already gathered his real intentions following the popular remix of “Lonely Stars In Open Skies” on All Day I Dream with which Luca jump started 2014.
Now OVO, the eagerly awaited new Luca Bacchetti EP, is here!
With this work on his ENDLESS imprint, Luca seems to be delineating a new soundscape, maintaining the psychedelia he introduced into his productions a few years ago; but now more synthetic and in some ways even minimalist.
In OVO we can find a brace of dancefloor tracks, No Gravity and The Space Between Us, that maintain and harness Luca’s emotional and intricate atmospheres whilst also employing powerful sounds and elements that embrace the movement of the body. Mature, emotional Techno, where ethereal dream-like atmospheres find a singular expression and their own distinct identity. It is no coincidence that the whole EP was recorded entirely high up in the Tosco Emiliano Apennines: a place where, for Luca, Nature is the element that most influences this new aural pathway. As he himself states: “It’s this contrast between isolated lands and the chaos of the big city that produces this state of being: a new dialogue. They are two worlds which overlap within my soul: when I’m in New York I think of these mountains and when I’m here I think of the bustle of tour life .. but it’s up here that I find the seed, in this case OVO.”
The beautiful ambient masterpiece, OVO, was recorded in December 2013 and features Stefano Onorati, jazz musician and long time friend of Luca. The 15 minute opus was then finished in April 2014 and now sees its unveiling.
