The Formula is a four-track EP of music written and composed by young Italian producer and multi-instrumentalist Fabrizio 'B.Kun' Pollice with drums by Ed 'HED' Amati. B.Kun originally wrote most of the music on the EP for a live show put together by Original Cultures in 2011 which featured a live band with HED on drums, Mannaman on bass, Danilo Mineo on percussion and Architeq (UK) as dubmaster.Following the success of the event, Original Cultures have curated four tracks for the EP which were re-recorded in B.Kun's studio. Everything you hear on this EP has been played live - absolutely no computers. The music on The Formula ranges from club friendly hip hop and dubstep tinged with electro on Black Tea Morning and Nightfall to smoked out dub vibes on Just Remember and nostalgic blues on Primitive Fire. Remixes have been commissioned from Japan's Daisuke Tanabe, London's Om Unit (who was among the first artists to take parts in Original Cultures in 2009) and Brussels' Squeaky Lobster. Each delivers a unique take on the originals: Daisuke and Squeaky Lobster send Black Tea Morning into more abstract hip hop realms while Om Unit shows why he is one of 2012's most in demand artists by outdubbing Just Remember into a low-slung riddim with chest-pounding sub aquatic bass that has already been tested on Fabric's mighty room 2 system to great effect.Support so far has come from a range of artists including Salva (FoF/RBMA), Jay Scarlett (Beat Dimensions), Wrongtom (Ninja Tune), Cardopusher (Tigerbeat), BD1982 (Seclusiasis), Jay5ve (Rinse FM/Anti Social), Digi D'Alessio (Lucky Beard), Yosi Horikawa (First Word), Kidkanevil (First Word/RBMA), Jonny Dub (Hoya:Hoya), Sweatson Klank (Dublab/Alpha Pup), Mr. Beatnick (DBA/RBMA) and more.Radio play on Rinse FM, NTS Live, Sub City (Glasgow), Cosmopolyphonic (Japan), Dubmission (USA), Radio Citta del Capo (Bologna, Italy), Juice FM (Brighton), 22 tracks (Belgium, online) and Rhythm Incursions (online), Mixology (Florence, Italy), Dublab (USA), Laid Back Radio (Belgium, online), Oz Radio Jakarta.Online reviews/previews/support on sonicrouter.com, youllsoonknow.us, rockit.it, 92bpm.com, finestego.com and Producers I Know.Beat Inc. have performed live shows in Italy in the run up to the release with more shows planned including an appearance as one of the headliners for Bologna's Homework Festival on May 18, 2012.
