Oh yes, we know that you have been waiting for this ride patiently and finally here it is! The fabulous Massimiliano Pagliara is back with his third full-length album, entitled “Feel Live”. The Italian producer/DJ, feeling enriched and inspired by his latest travelling and exploring-the-world experiences, delivers a playful and imaginative work to date. He states, “I felt like I have lived more than ever. Getting to discover all these beautiful places around the world and meeting so many lovely interesting people, has inspired me in many different ways”.

The 12-track album was recorded in several intimate, sometimes improvised studio settings between Los Angeles, Portland, and Massimiliano’s homebase in Berlin as well as at airports and on intercontinental flights high up in the sky. It features guest appearances from Private Agenda, Peaking Lights, Kim Ann Foxman and instrumental contributions by Fort Romeau, Tim K, and Jules Etienne.

Electro enthusiasts and house lovers this record is for you. We could not but admire the tracks’ spacial, almost orchestral qualities. It’s a ride to cosmic sounds as Massimiliano Pagliara successfully makes us part of his around-the-globe travelling adventures. “Feel Live” is pure grandeur and elegance. It feels like an eternal movement. “It’s as emotional as sensual, as vibrant as the first ray of light after a thunderstorm has cleared the air”. Here’s our track-by-track review of each track.
