LABELS: LATERRA – KMS – Bpitch Control – Harry Klein – Einmusika
Born in Puglia, also known as the heel of Italy´s boot, Giorgia is a composer and multi-instrumentalist. She is part of the project We love on Bpitch Control Records and she has been resident performer at Tenax Club 1.0 in Florence for 2 years. After a classical music education Giorgia developed in a short time a deep interest in the electronic music and she started experimenting new live techniques. From the very first project Metùo she aimed to create a multi-sensorial performance mixing sounds, images and scents. She never stopped looking intensely for the interaction with her public.
In the year 2010 with her audio visual project WE LOVE she concluded an exclusivity agreement with the label Bpitch Control performing in many clubs internationally. In 2013 she started her residency at TENAX club (Florence, ITALY). This experience gave her the chance to test a new style, creating always different live acts and having the opportunity of constantly improvising on stage. Giorgia Angiuli composed also soundtracks for movies, commercials and fashion shows collaborating with many well-recognized musicians. In 2014 she became a part of Kevin Saunderson’s legendary techno label KMS, from December of the same year Giorgia Angiuli is represented in Italy by La Terra Management, the agency founded by DJ Ralf. Giorgia Angiuli hosts currently a radio program Live is More in collaboration with the agency of the same name on the Italian sender Soundzrise (http://www.m2o.it/) presenting the most interesting live acts performing in the worldwide dance scene.
Stylistically Giorgia´s solo project moves between pop, techno and house. She uses her voice to create a dreamy dimension intensified by the use of unique toy instruments. During her set she combines keyboards, drum pad and theremin with the sounds of toy flute, sax, trumpets and many other toys. Mixing all these samples and loops she shapes a vibrating and energetic groove that sets the dance floor on fire. She currently lives in Florence.
Hello Giorgia! How Are You? What do you have scheduled for today?
Today the sun is shining in Florence and the summer is not so far, therefore my mood is great!
I’m going to run in a park and tonight I will do a piano session.
Which release was the one who gave you the most attention so far?
I don’t know… anyway I really loved the last EP I released on Einmusika Rec.
I love all the four tracks in it. I composed them some time ago but I never had the chance to publish them. Now that that everything is out I feel even more bonded to them!
Tell us a bit about your upcoming releases! Is there anything special planned in 2016?
I’m going to release some stuff on Moodmusic , Constant Circles and 3000grad Rec. ! I really love these labels and I respect a lot their music ! Moreover I ‚m working on my new album with 10 tracks.
You are an exclusive LIVE performing artist and your LIVE ACT is so unique! Congrats for this! How did you get the idea to include into your performing toys?
I’ve always been a big fan of vintage toys and I started collecting them many years ago … So the idea to bring them live was very natural and spontaneous. Now I can’t imagine myself performing live without them!
As you are touring a lot, please tell us something about your experience around the globe. What is your favourite city or country and why?
Yes , I am very lucky to travel a lot and each country is very different. My favorite country for music is without any doubts the Germany, and I really love Berlin! I love Germany because the clubs are always great and most of the time you play in places with amazing sound systems! It doesn’t always happens in other countries.
What was your funniest or craziest experience while touring?
I was on stage in front of many people and I pushed the wrong bottom of my toy ( a little cute box that reproduces many noises) so everybody listened from the microphone the sound of a burp.
What were your TOP 5 gigs so far?
Hard question, but if I have to choose here’s my list:
Kater Holzig Anniversary (Berlin) , Berghain (Berlin Bpitch Control Showcase with the project We Love) , Ralf in Bikini (Cattolica) , Le Bataclan (Paris) , Fusion Festival (Larz) .
What are your top 5 tracks that are really working the dance floor in your sets at the moment?
I only play live so I never test tracks from other people… I just play my music, and most of the time they are not real tracks, but, loops, riff, that I create at the moment.
