Giuseppe Ottaviani Releases New Album “Evolver”
The concept album derives from his Live 2.0 shows


A few years ago, trance producer Giuseppe Ottaviani embarked on a quest to use the latest technology to update the “live” element to his shows. Titled Giuseppe Ottaviani Live 2.0, the show has been received well by audiences ever since its premiere at EDC Mexico in 2016. G.O. Live 2.0 allowed Ottaviani to develop demos and create new sounds based on audience reaction.

Some of those demos were in such high demand by fans, Ottaviani ended up releasing them to the public. Tracks like “Tranceland”, “8K”, and “Colors” quickly rose to the charts. This prompted Ottaviani to go through the demos created during the Live 2.0 shows over the years and create a full-length album out of them.

“Evolver” is the end result, a collection of seventeen fan-voted tracks, all produced from Ottaviani’s Live 2.0 sets. Some of those records bare the name from which they were inspired or created at, tracks like “Soundbar”, “Belasco”, and “Ciudad de Mexico”.

Take a listen to “Evolver” by Giuseppe Ottaviani below:

*Cardio tip: choose your favorite cardio machine (I like to alternate), and then perform at a pace that is difficult enough to where you are breaking a light sweat (60-70% of your max heart rate), but to where you could still keep a conversation going with someone if you had to.
