Approved: Better Lost Than Stupid

Better Lost Than Stupid

Better Lost Than Stupid’s beginnings date back a few years, when the group’s members – Davide Squillace, Matthias Tanzmann and Martin Buttrich – found themselves booked to DJ at several of the same club nights. Although billed as individuals, they gradually began DJing together as a trio. Wanting to make more of this partnership, they formed Better Lost Than Stupid and headed out on tour.

As they travelled around the world, they also started working on original music together, the results of which will be fully revealed on their debut album next year through BMG/Skint. To date, there are two tracks out in the world, ‘Dynamite’, which was released in April, and new single ‘Alto’, which is the first to be taken from the album.

What’s notable in both tracks is the driving energy that runs through them – something the trio put down to writing together on tour, rather than emailing parts back and forth. There’s certainly an unusually live feel to their wholly electronic music that is incredibly infectious.

Launched at Amsterdam Dance Event last week, ‘Alto’ is officially released this Friday. Listen to the track here:
