Welcome to The Chris Palmer Record, a video blog where I’ll be interviewing DJ’s and artists about their studio process and live performance techniques. This video contains an interview with Tony Offlabel Vallini, one of my favourite Psytrance producers. He is part of the Blacklite Records crew, the Italian label that is creating some of the world’s best cutting edge Psytrance.
Psychedelic Trance at its best, Tony Offlabel is one of the Blacklite Records crew. Creating great tunes and sounds is his craft and he excels at it. Along with his Blacklite Crew mates, they are creating some of the finest Psytrance in the world. This livestream is from an old NATO base in Italy, and contains only original tunes written by himself.
Here is some background:
OffLabel is a psytrance project by Tony Vallini, born and raised in Italy. He started as techno DJ when he was 16, and from 1995 he started as a producer, always taking care to maintain his own style. He found himself drawn into the psytrance world, already having a lot of experience as a Techno artist and party promoter. In 2018 he joined the well known Blacklite Records family, after changing his style. More complex psychedelic sounds, deeper basslines, acid synths and a vast tempo increase, in line with the new trends of the genre. On stage, OffLabel provides a Live Set together with many atmospheric effects and sounds that are created live and on the spot. It is a very engaging show with a powerful music vibes that audiences love.
Location: The former NATO base is scenically located on the top of Monte Giogo. The four huge parabola-shaped antennas give the landscape a surreal and unusual look. The base was in fact a troposcatter base, that is, it served as a military communication bridge during the Cold War. Encrypted codes were transmitted to all of the NATO bases in the Mediterranean, to warn in case of missiles or other threats.
