SENSATIONAL SOUNDS FROM SICILY Italian Fidget House dons Blatta & Inesha are really cooking. Kick-starting 2009 with the remix series Confuzed 90's, these rising stars of today's scene take on the enviable task of remixing old school classics from the 1990s drenched with a fresh new zesty twist on Hell Yeah Recordings.

Confuzed 90's: Switched On Ramirez explodes with tantalising beats and strange musical ambitions that combine to gyrate the dance-floor with spasms of ecstasy. Devoid of inhibitions, the sounds are brave and streetwise. Good stuff!

Along with the excellent El Ritmo Barbaro and Orgasmico, La Musika Tremenda is charming and rounded with a regular beat and theme running through it. Also of note is Un Minuto Para Evacuar that sees a rush of organised, chaotic sounds that hit you as they will, without warning.

The publicity machine says: After the resounding success of Confuzed Disco a retrospective compilation of some of the finest Italo Disco from the legendary Bologna-based label Italian Records Hell Yeah's very own label guru Marco 'peeDoo' Gallerani delved into his obscured Italo House back catalogue and pulled up some choice cuts and undiscovered gems.

Rounding up this year's hottest new talent to deliver the best re-issues and remixes for Confuzed 90's, you will come to expect weird spaghetti house, nu-disco re-interpretations, nu-rave modified anthems and all mad funkiness in between.

First in line are hotly-tipped Sicilian heroes Blatta & Inesha, who pimp up Nineties techno supergroup Ramirez, giving their tracks a heavy dose of electro-tinged booty bass makeover, laced with the duo's own blend of freshness and humour. Cult classics like El Ritmo Barbaro and Orgasmico are remixed for the cooler sound systems and clued-up clubs.

For those of you who recall Ramirez, the music and the mad live sets, this four-track EP has all the classic tracks and the new remixes look set to become a staple item in your record bag for months to come early support comes from the likes of Bloody Beetroots, Lee Mortimer, Will Bailey, Boules a Facettes Blogspot and Congorock.

Blatta & Inesha will also be releasing another 12-inch featuring Congorock on Hell Yeah very soon, so watch this space. Hell Yeah. Keep on expectin' the unexpectedů

Confuzed 90's: Switched On Ramirez will be released on Hell Yeah Recordings on 9 March (2009) here in the UK.

About Blatta & Inesha

Blatta & Inesha are the hottest exports of the new Italian dance scene: young, irreverent and utterly talented. This new wave of fresh, up-front producers continue to champion the real sound of the underground, bringing their jacked-up tunes to the unsuspecting masses with their live shows often inducing mass hysteria. Blatta & Inesha are just two cool kids who love feeling the music. They love acid-tinged grooves and kick ass sounds.

The Sicilian duo has chalked up several releases over the past couple of years and has more tunes lined up, ever expanding their already growing discography. Their recent release last year titled: I Was A Punk Before You Were A Punk (Mantra Vibes), was a sleeper hit on the underground club circuit. This was hot on the heels of their critically acclaimed compilation Mad In Sicily (Mantra Vibes).

Blatta & Inesha play house and all its mutant sub-strands, dirty and suspicious, between straight and twisted. They make music for the kids and play it LOUD. It means a lot of distorted melodies and screeching guitars, techno rhythms, Sicilian folk and anything else in between!

These guys have traversed the globe in search of the ultimate party, having unleashed their hi-octane live sets at Womb in Tokyo to Fabric in London, always returning to B & I HQ in Catania. One of them has been crowned DMC Italian Champion several times and got to the World DMF Final in New York.

In 2007, they released Do It At The Peepshow on Hell Yeah, with German Wiesel and The Bell, under the Magmatic alias, along with Daniele Tignino and Ottavio Leo. On Fat! Records they remixed Merka (Something Like This B&I remix) and Unique 3 (I'm The B & I Nervous Breakdown remix). Blatta & Inesha are residents at two of the best respected clubs in Italy, both in Catania Bass Boutieque at Boutique at Zo and Mad in Sicily at Mercati Generali At the end of December, Annie Nightingale on BBC Radio 1 selected their mix as the best of the year.
