SHA109 - Released 05/08/2016
Hailing from Italy, Was A Be are a production duo making a lot of waves in a very short amount of time. With tracks supported by the likes of Noisia, Rockwell, Friction, Ivy Lab and more, it was their completely unsolicited but lashing remix of Friction & K-Tee’s ‘Set It Off’ that really brought them to the attention of the Shogun Audio crew. The resulting ‘Blind’ EP is a lesson in forward thinking bass weight that marks their card firmly for the future.
“More than a year ago we made an unofficial remix of Friction & K-Tee’s ‘Set It Off’. Both Ivan and I organise a lot of D&B events in Italy and we sent the track to a few of the contacts we’ve made through our parties. One of those contacts was Tom Rockwell who played it during a Shogun event after which Keir and Ed started paying us a lot of attention! They later asked us for some new material to select from and present to Shogun…and well, here we are. We’re so excited to kick off this collaboration with Shogun and hope this EP will be the beginning of a long deal with them. Big ups from Italy, enjoy the music!” Was A Be, 2016.
