Donato Dozzy, in collaboration with Eva Geist, putted out a beautiful Italo-Disco, synth-pop LP vinyl titled 'Il Quadro di Troisi'.


Committed to talk about the mos avant garde music on the planet, here is a finding that must call your attention, if you are looking for dreamlike electronic and instrumental soundscapes accompanied with proper majestic vocals. 

Donato Scaramuzzi (Donato Dozzy) and Andrea Noce (Eva Geist) debut new project 'Il Quadro di Troisi’ and release synth-pop album on Raster in collaboration with the experimental and sustainable festival Terraforma, following a long time relationship the festival established with Donato during its 6 editions. 

The record is a colorful ode of an Italian scented vision, overflowing of details, and profound intensity. The contemporary world condition, the pandemic in Italy, and around the world define "Il Quadro di Troisi" as a unique and right-on-time release.

Listen to the first single 'Raggio Verde' and read the full story below: 

This record is an enigmatic collaboration between the two Italian natives Andrea Noce and Donato Scaramuzzi. Andrea Noce takes lead on the vocals, with Donato Scaramuzzi carving the dreamlike soundscapes of the record. The record was born with a correspondence between the two artists about the late actor and director Massimo Troisi, and this exchange soon became an inspirational source of identification. Andrea Noce’s lyrics are sensitive and multi-faceted, they perfectly cling to the musical phrases and flow like a film monologue from the oeuvre of that very Troisi.

In a highly creative and confident manner, entire decades of national music history are comprehended and transformed into the here and now. The record takes its cue from the Italo- Disco, Synth-Pop tradition corroborated by the contribution of artists such as the legendary Twilight Music co-founder, Pietro Micioni. With "Il Quadro di Troisi", Noce and Scaramuzzi prove their eclecticism, and passion for their home country.

"Il Quadro di Troisi" is a collaboration between Raster and the Milan-based festival Terraforma. With this release, the first with a purely Italian topic at its center, Raster celebrates its long-standing relationship with Italy and the Italian audience, encapsulated in the label's project 'Electric Campfire' held in Rome for ten years. Terraforma is an international experimental and sustainable music festival taking place since 2014 in the park of Villa Arconati, where Dozzy has been invited at every edition in different forms, Djing, Live performing both in solo and with Voices From The Lake (together with Neel).
