Antenna! is the brand new music project created by the Italian producer Andrea Bertolini. Andrea, who’s a synth addicted and craftsman of the sound, over the last decade has shaped his own groove signature releasing hundreds of tracks for the best electronic music labels of the world; his particular attention and passion for stuff like Chicken Lips, Loose Joints and The Emperor Machine, that have been source of inspiration for him from day one, has generated the idea to create Antenna!. Juno 106, Korg MonoPoly and SCI Pro-one are his special weapons and disco, funk, house and psychedelic attitude are the special ingredients. Let yourself be taken by the hand for a dance floor journey from 110 bpm until the infinity.
An hypnotic and groovy journey that starts off with ‘Batongo’, a tribal and exotic dancefloor banger that will let the sweat out of the listener in zero time. ‘Espresso Notte’ is filled with organic house grooves, dreamy pads and a synth that tells you a story that could go on and on and on. ‘Gulliver’ and ‘Litoraneo’ pick up from there and bring the sound scenario down heavy with 70s-80s disco sounds and boogie, transporting mind and body to a warm and mellow planet. Panoramica reflects perfectly Club Pradiso’s goal of mixing past and future, an über-cool EP that is both club and disco friendly.
After the creation of Computer Disco, Marcello Giombini produces the year after I Adore Commodore – Computer Music Flash, which was mainly made with a Commodore 64. Giombini was a veteran of music applications with personal computer, started with an Apple II Europlus and then converted to the Commodore 64 thanks to the presence of 3 independent music generators that allowed him to make more elaborate music easier. The record was inspired by the VideoGames of the time, so that the titles of the 10 tracks are inspired by the names of famous games. The music was created using four to eleven Commodore 64 programmed and synchronized with an external audio interface. At the time, Giombini, in his studio in a basement just a few steps from Nomentana, Rome, had organized a small school with courses of basic and computer music. The graphic is the same of original LP with inner-sleeve dedicated to Commodore 64.
