sUb modU – Circles EP

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 10, 2014 by J.D.

sUb_modU_circlesThe new project called ‘sUb_modU’ shapes up from the desire of avoiding to choke a growing love simply because it wouldn’t suit the style of the former projects tied to the exploration of abstract hip-hop and future beats with Jazzy Gentle, or to the cinematic sounds/70’s soundtracks (with the Acusmatic Group) and to the past 10 years of jazz studies and performances.
This new love finds its roots in the echoes and the sound of electronic music (mainly analog sound and future-bass music) and, amplified by the Berlin experience, explores a new territory creating a sound that makes one think to the illusion of hypnotics circles translated into music, with the help of phase shifting, overlapping of rhythms and sequences of phrases.

sUb_modU, Italian producer, musician and composer of electronic music, recently based in Berlin.
Currently focused on analog electronic, slo-mo-tribal, bass music, modal, afrotribal jazz, techno, hypnotic, spacey, and deep atmosphere, he spent the past year working on his first EP, slowly becoming aware that the experiences in his new home city were carving a new creative vein while changing his music.
Owner of Jazzy Gentle project, Co-founder /owner of the Acusmatic Group project, Member of The Beatfonics Crew held several collaborations with Irma Records, Buyù Records, Agogo Records, Wass Records, Roy Ayers Project, Timewarp Music, NoMad Records.

Simba & Milton Gulli – The Heroes : A Tribute To A Tribe Called Quest

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on June 6, 2013 by J.D.

Simba - Milton Gulli - The Heroes - A Tribute To A Tribe Called QuestMusic is not just art, just words, just sounds, it is an invisible net that binds us, fusing with our souls, telling our stories. This is the story of how A Tribe Called Quest inspired these artists to make a difference musically, to not fear being different, to not fear self expression. This tribute is to thank ATCQ for being the first to take these steps, and to make it easier for those who followed.

Like all art forms, music is a means of self-expression. This album is an expression whose purpose is to thank A Tribe Called Quest for being, not only a source of inspiration, but more importantly a source of positive energy.
This album also serves as a message to ATCQ, urging them to get past their differences and remember their roots as a hip hop band. We hope that the response will remind the band of why they started making music, of their roots, and of their duty to their fans.

“The Heroes: A Tribute To A Tribe Called Quest” is a voyage, from the 90’s when ATCQ was at its peak, to now, taking the listener on an evolutionary tour of hip hop to Southern Africa. This album is not only a tribute to ATCQ, but also a symbol of the happiness and joy in the simplicity of life, love, and music.
