Deardrums is the new project of two established Italian artists: Bottin (main contemporary disco producer and restless globetrotting deejay) and Leo di Angilla (percussionist for major artists like Mike Patton, Jovanotti and Tiziano Ferro as well as also a producer in his own trade)
Deardrums deploy an arsenal of analog drum machines (mostly played by hand!) in what feels like a neo-tribal soundscape, drawing from prehispanic elements (think mayan and aztec, not latin) and pseudo-african rhythms. Nearly all sounds, including bass and leads, are crafted with skillfully tuned drum synthesizers.
Just after listening to the first couple of songs the project was immediately signed to Brooklyn-based 2MR/Captured Tracks label, under the supervision of Italian Do It Better and Troubleman founder Mike Simonetti.
An EP is due out in may, while the full length album will drop right after the summer.
More Festival is proud to welcome Deardrums world premiere on June, 5th.
