Stump Valley joins Toy Tonics in 2023. The Italo-Ukrainian DJ and producer duo (based between Turin and Berlin) will release their first EP on TT in summer 2023. SV is an established name in the new disco/underground house and selector scene. Their debut album „Natural Race“ came out on Dekmantel in 2019. They got the first attention much earlier when they released their EP “Magica Movida” on Rush Hour as a tribute to Dj Peppe Afro, an unsung hero of the Italian Cosmic Era from whom they inherited a large collection of records. Following the steps of “Magica Movida”, in 2021 SV released “Melodj Mecca” a tribute to one of the most iconic clubs of the 80’s Italian Afro scene.
Alexei and Francesco joined forces with musicians and renowned acts like NuGenea’s Lucio Aquilina and Peggy Gou. Alexei tours as an opening act for her DJs sets and also released 2 EPs under the pseudonym Brain De Palma on Peggy’s label Gudu Records, Francesco is a resident of the Italian crew Ciao! Discoteca Italiana.
In 2014 SV started Magica Movida studios in Berlin, their production reflects the Italo approach to the club culture. Their concept evolves from a dusty warm old school sound into modern aesthetics. When it comes to their DJ set, both have quite a fame for being voracious diggers with a very good understanding of dance-floors and being able to create magic moments with super rare records. They accurately dig into rare grooves and their way to create a a singular mix of genres brought them to play Panorama Bar, Warehouse Project, Concrete, Rex, Corsica Studios, Le Bain NY, Boiler Room. They are regulars at Ortigia Sound System Festival, C2C and Dekmantel festivals (Lente Kabinet, Dekmantel and Selectors).
Stump Valley tracks are also featured on Soul Clap Records: Italo Funk Compilation Vol. 2. and on the last Driving Blind Vol.3 Compilation from Les Yeux Orange.
