Andrea Di Ceglie, Fedele Ladisa and Luigi Tutolo are the Agents Of Time formed in July 2013.
The ambitious Italian outfit quickly released their inaugural full-length album “Spread The Word” on British label Stem Records (May 2014). Soon after, they strike again with the highly acclaimed EP “Polina”, delivered on Jennifer Cardini’s imprint Correspondant, receiving massive support from the likes of Tale of Us, Dixon, Tiga, Agoria, John Digweed, Stephan Bodzin and Miss Kittin. In 2015, the trio’s innovative soundscape landed again on the French label with the “Emperor” EP (May) and the single “Lotus Flower” on Correspondant’s compilation (June).
The following year saw another major step with the release, on Maceo Plex’s iconic label Ellum, of their EP “Magma”, whose gem “Obsidian” was quickly crowned as an outstanding dancefloor anthem. Their pioneering sound creativity also shines and blazes through when they step into remix duty. Their reworks of “Traces” from the Danish band WhoMadeWho, “Zulu” from techno legend Stephan Bodzin or the single “Fire on the Moon” from Sailor & I, all demonstrated their stunning capacity for reinterpretation.
The uniqueness and complexity of the Agents of Time’s sonic signature arise from a powerful and original blend of electronic, progressive, techno and ambient textures, and is rooted in a creative artistic process which combines meticulous studio work and multiple “live” tested performances.
The Agents of Time’s live act is characterized by the use of analog instruments, making each stage show unpredictable and unique in its kind. Their common desire is to brave limits and to share with others the pulse of enjoyable freedom which led them to perform at internationally recognised festivals (mostly with live acts, but also often DJ sets), such as Amsterdam’s DGTL and ADE, Barcelona’s Off Sonar and Mexico’s BPM Festival, and even with the Tonhalle Orchestra of Zürich as well as infamous clubs around the globe.
This year, the launch of their own label “Obscura”, with a strong, magnetic and complex 4-track EP entitled “Day One” opens a further landmark chapter in Agents of Time’s journey of constant self-reinvention. The future is unwritten and much more is yet to come: nothing is left to chance, all is entrusted to time.
