Selection Section: Carola Pisaturo’s 10 Favorite Cabinet Releases

by SoLil

We’re reaching out to some of our favorite DJs and asking them to share with our readers some of their most loved releases for our series Selection Section. For this Selection Section, Carola Pisaturo selected 10 of her favorite releases from Cabinet Records: “I chose Cabinet Records because it’s really one of the labels that has influenced me the most, right from the beginning. I guess you could say the concept for this list is that there are some timeless labels like this which you can play out now and they still resonate with you.”

As a product of both Rome and Naples, Carola Pisaturo inherited the incredible liveliness that the two of these amazing cities are known for. Like all those who have grown up surrounded by beauty, Carola also has a solemn passion for art and culture, which has led to things like her collaboration with brands like Nike, Smart, PS1 Moma and her participation in the prestigious Red Bull Academy. In addition, Carola founded and manages Claque Musique that publishes both young producers and big names, not to mention some of Carola’s own productions. The distinctive sound of the label mirrors that of Carola’s own DJ sets — a fluid mix of house, funk and techno with a genuinely Mediterranean vibe and attitude. Here are her 10 picks:
