Machweo – Tramonto

Machweo means ‘sunset’ in Swahili and ‘tramonto’ is the Italian for ‘sunset’. That said, Tramonto is also the first single from the Carpi-based producer’s yet-to-be-titled sophomore album and you should not expect from it anything you’ve already heard on previous releases No Way Out (2012) and Leaving Home (2013).

Thanks to Gazebo Penguins’ Andrea Sologni, who lent his studio expertise and instrumentation, and the support of other fantastic musicians (Daniele Rossi of Threelakes and Andrea Mancin of Quakers & Mormons/Giardini Di Mirò), Machweo finally had the chance and the means to shape his music according to his visions, which apparently were all about creating something fresh-sounding by merging Ninos Du Brasil’s mantra-esque, tribal rhythmical patterns with the progressive, booming take on electronica of artists like Albert Swarm and The Field. Of course, he succeeded. And it’s a fact now that one of the brightest Italian talents around is turned radiant.

Tramonto is out today on Bad Panda Records. Get it here.
