Techno supergroup, Better Lost Than Stupid – aka Martin Buttrich, Davide Squillace, and Matthias Tanzmann, have released their much-hyped new single ‘Right Now’, alongside their debut album, ‘Wild Slide’.
‘Right Now’ follows a run of singles from Wild Slide – ‘Back From The Desert’, ‘The Sky Is Too Low’, and ‘Inside’ – which have won praise from the likes of Mixmag, Dancing Astronaut, Clash, RA, Radio 1 and many more tastemakers.
Wild Slide was largely written and produced in studio sessions over the past year at Martin’s studio in Barcelona, and saw the trio come together more like a traditional band, alongside close friends and collaborators including Jonathan Illel (JAW/DOP), Theo Altieri (CHANEY), Amber Van Day, and Alex Naza; the album was mastered by Bob Ludwig (nominated for 11 Grammy Awards).
Listen to ‘Right Now (feat. Chaney)’ by Better Lost Than Stupid on the Shoot Music New Releases playlist on Spotify.
BLTS is formed of three friends who’ve known each other for over a decade, and who’ve carved out impressive individual legacies within house and techno.
The first glimpse of the eagerly awaited long-player was the truly excellent vocal-driven club stormer ‘Inside’, which saw Martin, Davide and Matthias team up with 21-year-old UK-born vocalist ands Skint Records label mate Chaney (AKA Theo Altieri), who also features on ‘Right Now’.
First released in its dub form, ‘Inside’ quickly became an anthem at the close of 2018 for DJs ranging from Marco Carola, Dubfire, Nicole Moudaber and Richie Hawtin, to Kölsch, Carl Craig, Eats Everything, Adam Beyer and beyond.
Since forming, Better Lost Than Stupid have sold out Koko in London, broadcast a standout BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, performed a Miami Winter Music Conference headline show for Arcadia, headlined the legendary Ibiza venue, Amnesia, and played the likes of Razzmatazz in Barcelona, Circoloco at DC10, Krystal Club in Romania, and BPM Festival.
