Label: Protocol Recordings
Release date: 08 September 2017
The latest member of the Protocol Recordings family is an Italian producer by the name of Dr. Shiver, and he delivers on his namesake with his new release “Something.” Dr. Shiver showcases his ability to bring together nostalgic and modern influences on “Something,” which features soulful vocals by Kazi. With its funky guitar riffs and complex melodies paired with vocals that sound straight from a blues club, we promise you’ve never heard anything quite like this before. Dr. Shiver teamed up with some very talented musicians to give “Something” its authentic, raw sound. As a master sound engineer, Dr. Shivermeticulously crafted “Something” to sound unplugged and vintage, as if the track could be played live instead of electronically created. “This track really represents every one of my artistic sides,” says Dr. Shiver. “As a pianist and hammond player my origins are based in the blues, funky, soul and black music and in this tune you can really feel my musical background in every note, melody and chord progression.” With the addition of Dr. Shiver to its already-diverse roster, Protocol Recordings continues to expand its imprint and explore new sounds, keeping the label at the forefront of cutting-edge music.
Bruno Carlo Oggioni, better known as Dr. Shiver, is a man of many talents who wears many hats. His titles include producer, musician, sound engineer, DJ, label manager and record studio owner. Dr. Shiver’s focus wasn’t always on electronic music, however: he began his career in the classical spectrum, playing piano and hammond, where he worked with legendary musicians like BB King, Pharrell Williams, Little Louie Vega and more before turning his sights to conquering the dance music scene. In 2015, he released his first official remix for “You Got the Love” with the Candi Staton’s original vocal from 1986. Dr. Shiver’s remix soared to the Number Five on the UK pop chart and was used as the soundtrack to the Tomorrowworld aftermovie. With support from the likes of Nicky Romero, Benny Bennassi, Tiesto, David Guetta, Don Diablo and more industry heavyweights, he will continue to make waves as a member of Protocol Recordings. Dr. Shiver will be playing at the Protocol showcase during the Amsterdam Dance Event on October 18th, so don’t miss his one-of-a-kind live performance if you’re attending ADE!
