Biography

Who is dead tribe?

I was born in 1985 in the North of Italy. I started learning guitar when I was 14 years old and then few years later I started playing in a punk-rock band named Wake Up. We made our first record 2 years later and we had some live concerts here and there in Italy.

1• First Contact

The “first contact” with a DAW was in 1999 when a friend of mine showed me the Playstation 1 Videogame Music 2000 where it was possible to create a song. Few hours later, while I was finishing my first attempt I understood that I was falling in love with music production and days later I bought my first real DAW.

2• It sounds like Boom Bap!

After years producing and sampling in my bedroom, I’ve decided to found the hip hop collective FSB with my brother and two friends of mine. In 2007 we recorded our first demo and one year later we independently released the first album “Rèvolte” with several videos on Youtube . In 2011 we decided to end this project so we made a small compilation with all the unreleased tracks we made during this adventure.

The First Fuoco Sul Beat album Rèvolte was independently released in 2008

3• Sampling Humans to Understand Them
In 2013 I moved to London and I thought that it was the perfect time to create something totally different from what I did in the past and i started the project called Dead Tribe.
I started sampling old tribe’s chants and I made them the main characteristic of the sound and I worked hard to find my own personal style in production. I went back to Italy in 2015 and in 2016 I Self-released the first EP “Money Talk / Mentalism”, that was my “first step on the moon”.
Dead Tribe album was released independently in 2017

Dead Tribe – Blood, Violence and Other Cute Things

4• Emotions Through Sounds
The first album Blood, Violence and other cute things was released in 2017. I decided to describe emotions through sounds, sampling everything that was surrounding me. I sampled old vinyl while I was feeling nostalgic and spoons hitting surfaces while I was happy. I recorded a storm while I was sitting in my living room alone and bored and I sampled my friends chatting in a bar. During this period I built a DIY Synthesizer messing up with an old Casio SK-1 keyboard. I decided to include its sounds in one of the main tracks of the album. If you’re interested I wrote an article about it and you can see all the pictures at this Link
Shelter5 records event "basement" was created and art directed by dead tribe from 2015 to nowdays

5• Shelter5 Records
In 2015 with Revenant and Kickass I’ve founded the collective Shelter5 Records and the monthly event Basement, that became in two years one of the main Electronic and Techno Live events in Romagna. During these years we released over 30 highly selected tracks with this record label.

In 2017 Revenant and Kickass (due to lack of time) decided to abandon the project and Tom Noise joined Shelter5 Records.Shelter5 is now a fully working label based between London and Las Palmas (Canary Islands). We are still promoting the research and the evolution of music through highly selected monthly releases.
6• Ultrafuture

The brand new album Ultrafuture will be available in Digital Stores from the 15th of April.

This album is an incredible 10 tracks Synthwave release. It’s a journey through a dystopian future where electronic sounds are mixed with Arabian and Tribal feels that makes your mind blow and travel through space and time. Chants and vocal samples are arranged in an uncommon way and are blended with 70’s / 80’s synthesizers to gain an impressive power and deepness to the sound textures of this 10 tracks release. There is also a small techno feels in some of these tracks that is uncommon in this music genre that is mainly “retro” based.

Perspectives is the first track from the album (you can listen to the track HERE). It has a clear 80’s sound that match with the imaginary that we have today of this decade that was highly influenced by the Stranger Things series in the last years.

The full album sounds like its made in the next 80’s, yes it’ like 2080’s music and it make this album a must have and yes, those track would be perfect for a new Blade Runner Remake!

Ultrafuture its a huge step forward to another kind of dimension for Dead Tribe. While his previous album Blood, Violence and Other Cute Things brought us inside ourselves, today he’s bringing us into the future! And its amazing!

The Album will be available Digital Download from the 15th of April. A Limited Edition 50 pcs. High Bias Audio Cassette format will be available from the 30th
