Guest Feature by Toni Cutrone
Here we are in a new year. There has been a lot of talk lately about the one we just left, what has been accomplished and what's not… But I also think it's nice to jump into the future, trying to guess what is going to happen (and probably mistaking!).
Three bands and one label that will do great things in 2012? Not so easy, but there will be a lot of them for sure! Especially since my point of view is focused on bands and artists that are not really BIG even though doing great things. But let’s just give this a better tone and call it niche music created by music researchers!
Narrowing the selection to my surroundings (NO=FI Recordings, the shows at DalVerme and the touring with Trouble Vs Glue and Hiroshima Rocks Around) my third choice is:
A mysterious trio of unknown origins. It could be well described as a kind of Bollywood-style hip hop or as a project coming all the way from Bangladesh and contaminated by a strong Western touch, assimilated in the UK or in the eastern part of Rome. In other words: fucked up beats produced by a broken drum machine or by an old free software running on a 90's computer. Synth overdose, lo-fi sounds and two sick crazy voices rapping over it (one in Indian, one in English). Great rhythm and great style. DDD (Death Disco Dance) records is releasing a tape in March. Can't wait!
Partying will be easier in 2012!
