[BadPanda089] Iròi – Usual Pop Line (Populous Remix)
Andrea Mangia (as Populous) is an eclectic italian musician who so far released three albums on beloved Berlin-based Morr Music (Mùm-Lali Puna-ISAN-Seabear-etc). Combining electronica, hip-hop and pop, he also started another project with Matilde Davoli (who is also featured in this track) called Girl With The Gun.
Iròi is Pietro Iannuzzi, a “non-musician”. An electronic composer and remixer (listen to his take on Dumbo Gets Mad – You Make You Feel), with a strong preference for violins, pianos and post-rock, who recently released his 1st LP, Where You Were Now.
We are really glad to welcome them both and to share this dreamy, upbeat, summery remix of Usual Love Line… italian music never sounded this good!
Bonus: Meanwhile, the following track is part of the soundtrack of the short “L’asino e la luna” directed by Giuseppe Carrieri and that will be distributed on the web on september 2011. Enjoy!
