DJ Gio MC-505 – Saved From Oblivion [HVL002]

Active for over 25 years as a music journalist, writer and author of books, Giosuè Impellizzeri was, for a period, also a composer. Through several records recorded since 2002 as DJ Gio MC-505, he has developed a sound obtained on the crossroads between chiptune, electro and synthetic disco with a few glimpses of funk, techno, house and EBM. Now completely dedicated to journalism, Impellizzeri has stopped creating music for over a decade. In the drawer, however, he still had unpublished tracks, written and produced in the past, and five of them now end up in this EP entitled “Saved From Oblivion”: from the cinematic “Il Bacio” to the legoweltian “Jupiter Lander”, from the biting “Picnic On Pluton” “to” Sexy Song “that plays with 80s synth pop up to cybernetics” The Eyes Of Memory “in which you can see trails of SID style. Made between 2005 and 2006 and recorded live in a combination of hardware and software instruments, the tracks of the EP are subject to an adequate and effective mastering.
