Think of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Trainspotting and Back To The Future. Mix those three enoguh so to have no boudaries among each other.
This will be Teatro Franco Parenti on Sunday April 19.
Electronic magics and string orchestras with Dardust. Plus: pop and rave and techno and 80’s whirlwinds presented by Coma, which opens the door to exotic modernism by Gui Boratto. And then the dancefloor with acid-jazz idol Gilles Peterson and trip-hop hero Mc Earl Zinger.
Architect, musician, dj, producer, manager of the label D.O.C., excellence of Kompakt and remix untiring author, able to seduce inside and outside the dance floor. With Boratto house, idm, ambient and minimalist obsessions find their space, all blended in a mixture that represents a real brand for the Brazilian producer.
During his career he remixed for Massive Attack, Bomb The Bass, Pet Shop Boys, Goldfrapp and Moby.
NINOS DU BRASIL
Italians Ninos Du Brasil are Nico Vascellari and Nicolò Fortuni. The former is one of the most acclaimed young video artists; the latter has already take part (voice and drums) in many punk band, such as Smart Cops.
Their new album, Novos Mistérios, has been released by New York cult label Hospital Production. It’a visionary album where batucada and electro burst in a stellar ensemble of sounds, whose power goes beyond national borders.
Dardust is the first italian project of instrumental music where piano minimalism becomes one with north european electronic imaginary. Dario Faini is the man behind Dardust, both an ironic tribute to Ziggy Stardust (the famous David Bowie alien) and a tribute to Chemical Brothers’ debut album Exit Planet Dust. Arches of electronic soundscapes, visionary soundtrack, Stanley Kubrick’s Odyssey meets the dancefloor.
Coma knows how to incite a crowd. It's the sort of knowledge that you don't learn simply as you go along, it's something you already bring to the table, and in Coma's case, that first table was Cologne's c-o pop festival. They famously hit the ground running, winning over the audience almost immediately with pop-infused electronics including laptops, guitars, synthesizers and microphones.
After a handful of expertly crafted EP's at Coma's homebase label Kompakt, and three years of meticulous preparation, "In Technicolor" will finally see the light of day in April 2013. The name already hints at the newly found playfulness on display, or as Coma put it themselves: "Where our previous releases were kinda mirroring a foggy black and white movie, this is definitely a color film... our attempt at fusing diverse sounds in a more vivid manner, without falling prey to boring club conventions restricting the expressiveness of the music."
Raised in South London by French/Swiss parents, radio jock, club DJ, and compiler, Gilles Peterson grew up speaking French at home and English everywhere else. At 18, Peterson began DJing around London, ultimately spinning at the now-famous Dingwalls club in Camden. His sets covered the spectrum of urban music, from jazz to funk to soul and back to hip-hop. Out of this, Peterson co-founded the Acid Jazz label with some colleagues. Peterson created compilations not only for his own label, but for Blue Note, Prestige, and Street Sounds as well, introducing popular and obscure jazz to younger generations and expanded his vision by creating the Talkin Loud label, which came to include some of England's most innovative drum'n'bass artists, like 4hero and Roni Size. Teaming up with onetime Talkin Loud A&R man and DJ Norman Jay,Peterson's acclaimed JDJ Presents: Desert Island Mix captured the pair's love and understanding of music history.
MC EARL ZINGER
Electronica artist Earl Zinger is actually none other than Rob Gallagher, who formerly led the Talkin' Loud label's acid jazz band Galliano. It boasts of his associations with Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, and other luminaries, while touting his influence over such musical artists as Bob Marley and Bob Dylan. Put Your Phazers on Stun and Throw Your Health Food Skyward, issued by K/7 in 2002, marked the fictional Zinger's debut. Gallagher, in his guise as Zinger, clearly has a sense of humor, which shows in everything from Zinger's songs to the interviews he refuses to conduct but which are given through a third party who supposedly knows him.
