Heith

Heith – If I Were Buddhist I’d Chant for Your Happiness

There was a time when the city of Milan was just a gray amass of buildings with no soul. Then something happened, and a collective of people opened a new path in the creative underground of the city, mostly based in a liberated space called Macao. Amongst these people was Daniele Guerrini, aka Heith, who co-runs a Milan-based, globally active label called Haunter Records. The new freedom acquired during the years allowed Heith to explore sound as an infinite landscape where everything is possible, and brought him to collect contaminations from genres that spreaded from ambient to industrial, from folk music to rave culture. This long mix expresses the span of Heith’s research, a never-ending, polymorph, rhizomatic, and borderless journey in sound.

Heith is the alias of Milan-based artist and musician Daniele Guerrini; his music offers a heady and disorienting trip through off-kilter rhythms and a thick, textural haze of warped electronics, culminating in a certain spiritual quality to his creations. Heith crafts a mesmerizing and ritualistic subterranean soundscape, a resonant and eclectic collage of distinct sonic elements: from celestial percussion intertwined with jarring, mechanical oscillations to haunting vocals atop murky dubbed-out beats. Since 2013 he is the founder of the experimental music label Haunter Records, one of the main outlets for underground electronic music in Italy.
