Giuseppe Ottaviani announces third artist album, ‘ALMA’ [Exclusive]
Under his own name, Giuseppe Ottaviani has expanded beyond what he’d begun as part of Nu NRG into one of the most revered names in trance music. His raw, yet intricate brand of trance has brought him legions of fans as he continues to tour the world with his GO Live concept shows that further boost his reputation as an artist. More recently, his work with Solarstone as PureNRG has been lauded heavily by the trance community, with hits like “Secret Of The Sahara” and “Scarlett” earning heavy rotation with the duo’s peers.
Ottaviani now bears more good news: a new album is imminent. Titled ALMA, which translates from Spanish into “Soul,” his third artist record will feature personal pieces showcasing his multilayered production abilities. “ALMA is the result of a two year long journey, that’s taken place both in and out of the studio,” the Italian legend divulged. “Artistically it’s the natural next step in my career.”
While the full tracklist has yet to be revealed, thus far we know his recent singles “Musica” and “Doctor Who” will not be included in the roster, which the Italian legend notes is “100% new studio material.” However, “Slow Emotion,” his 110bpm giveaway track, offers a unique insight supporting his new approach to making an album that defies the status quo. Paul Van Dyk, Christian Burns, and Kyler England were also revealed to have played a role in the production process.
ALMA will be released through Black Hole Recordings on September 30.
“It won’t be simply ‘Magenta Pt. II’. With its variety, it’s going to bring several new perspectives to my music. I see myself as not ‘just’ a producer, but as a music lover and ‘ALMA’ is something that’s come from deep within my soul.”
