IANVS71 is the label from Circo Loco's System of Survival. Spinning together since 1989, Pietro 'Bingo' De Lisi and Alex Carpentieri, affectionately known as Bingo & Alex, set up the label in 2008 as an outlet not only for their own releases, but to nurture and support productions from artists that they have met along their journey. With inspirations covering a range of styles and sounds from jazz through house to Detroit techno, IANVS71 - like the System duo themselves - is not confined to one particular style.
IN NOVA FERT ANIMUS MUTATAS DICERE FORMAS CORPORA
‹My soul inclines me to sing of forms changed into new bodies›
(OVID 8 a.d.)
In the music they play, and throughout all their productions or releases, the unifying theme is of looking back to look forward, of acknowledging the rich history of house, and of delving into the past to create and shape the future.
Because we look in more directions...we change, mutate, evolve in the present; progression of past to future, where we happen, we become.
