El Brujo has published the track lists for his new show 'Work In Progress' episode 3 featuring guest DJ 2 Tru. Scientific Sound Asia is the Asian electronic music station for the region and internationally.

El Brujo (first hour) real name Robert Milanesi was born in Italy in 1964. From a very early age he became addicted to music and in 1994 became known as one of the founding fathers of the underground rave scene in Bologna, Italy.

His first official release in 2008 was ‘Warriors’ on the Milan Label Open Legs. Jambalay Records, his label was launched at their opening party in 2010 in Ibiza, Spain at Club Geminis in the Ibiza harbour.

The label and El Brujo then burst onto the worldwide scene with the legendary Maya Jane Coles first charting in her February Chart 2011; his track, ‘Mozambique’ in collaboration with Big Mojo, was his first physical CD release ’Nutty Fellas Are Go'. In January 2019, his release, ‘Plastic Dreams’ was originally released on Frame Worxx and ranked number #33 in the Beatport Hard Techno Top 100.

EL Brujo has released on labels such as Hydraulic, Naked Lunch, Elektrax, Frame Workxx, Lw Recordings, Subwoofer, Sound Dissonance, Physical Techno and many others. In May 2022 he was charted by DJ Rush and his track Shit Happens reached position number 10 in the Beatport top 100 for Jackin House.

His Unique sound is one of the unknown as the cosmos is a part of El Brujo and his creations are interstellar in his “Raw” approach whatever the music genre he conceives in music innovation. Every month El Brujo will be giving us a guest DJ from his collection of Techno producers and artists. In his next show, El Brujo enlights us with a selection of his own and his cohorts' tracks.

Guest DJ 2 Tru (second hour).

This month's guest (second hour) is DJ 2 Tru, 2 Tru started getting into house music by listening to The Hot Mix 5, Lil Louis, Ron Hardy, Steve Hurley, and Frankie Knuckles. He recalls going to the parties at Mendel High School, Glenwood Roller Rink, and the ballroom parties at various hotels in downtown Chicago.

Everyone back in the ’80s remembers the parties at (The Biz) Bismarck Hotel. A massive line would form around the block with partygoers eagerly anticipating the enchanting music awaiting their eardrums. Lil Louis, Ron Hardy, and Frankie Knuckles always headlined those particular parties.

2 Tru started producing tracks in the late ‘90s with a release on the original Undaground Therapy Label under the moniker, DJ 2 Tru. He has also remixed “Love Clouds” by Amanda Amariel under his real name, Sam Stith.

His remix for El Brujo entitled Satisfaction feat. Femi X (Nu Italo Remix) is out on NDI Records. NDI will also release another 2 Tru track titled “Tonight” revisiting the Italo Disco Sound in the coming months. The release includes remixes by Judge Jay & Luca Colombo, Reinoud van Toledo, and El Brujo.

For 15 years, 2 Tru taught Club DJ and Music Production courses at Columbia College Chicago. 2 Tru plans to launch an online electronic music school, Mix Suite, later this Summer to train future Club DJs, Remixers, and Producers. This show originally aired on Friday the 19th of May 2023, listen to the Mixcloud player below.
