MODULAR CUISINE is an event, a vinyl, a charity auction.
During the event, our artists “interpret” local food with live exhibitions. An exclusive vinyl is jointly released, and during the event uniquely-painted copies are exhibited in the framework of a charity auction.
Our first experience is shaped by:
•ACID CASTELLO – “analogue-infused electro and crafty acid sounds”
•ANDY MORELLO – “unique merge of dub, ambient and experimental electronic music”
•IDRA – “charming ambient soundscapes”
•JOAO CESER – “deeply atmospheric dance”
•VOSM – “solid and sweet rhythms”

Acid Castello: Sharp Razor (6:15)
Andy Morello: Unpredictable Positronic Failure (7:29)
Side B (logo):
IDRA: Interferance (6:00)
Joao Ceser: Adda (4:08)
VOSM: Hold Your Breath (4:21)

“Finestra.brz” is a tribute to what I see every day through my studio’s window. I luckily live close to the Parco del Molgora and the view is awesome! From here you can enjoy a landscape that continuously shifts following seasons and weather. Straight in front of me there is the Monastero di Montevecchia with its sunlight reflecting clear color followed by the beautiful sawchain form of the Resegone and then the majestic Gruppo delle Grigne with the Grigna peak.
This view is really inspiring and I hope You will enjoy it through the tracks of this EP // to you from Joao Ceser //
“an emotional sound deflagration”
Finestra.brz is a tribute to what Joao sees every day through his studio’s window, from where he enjoies an awesome view, with landscape continuously shifting following seasons and weather.
Finestra.brz follows Fiumi.brz , and marks the 2nd step into Joao’s “.brz” series…..
2021 is very succesfull so far @51Beats. We’re thrilled to tirelessly look for new music and new friends to get on board with us.
We started in February with Andy Morello&Duscio: “Electricults”. According to ElectronicGroove, their debut-album “…is the balanced ensemble of intricate structures and killer rhythms for a magnificent dance on Orion.” Within “Electricults”, Andy&Duscio fruitfully interact by merging modular synthesizers and drum machines, with an eye open to the most intelligent dancefloor.
In March, we welcomed Joao Ceser with his Fiumi.brz, an imaginary daily walk around his secret places in Brianza. According to XLR8R (Los Angeles), “….the four tracks feature stunning modular synth lines and subtle wandering percussion from Ceser’s analog-focused collection“, with “Seveso” indicated as an “Euphoric Synth” track…., and “Adda” being incuded in the Best Music selection of March 2021.
April marked the come-back of Plasman with his “Circles and Circles”, also available as an exclusive musicassette. Again picked-up by XLR8R (Los Angeles), the album has been identified as “…an imaginary journey through the universe and a contemplation of the distant stars and planets, and this results in an extremely psychedelic release”, with “Underwater Still Life” being inserted in their Best Music selection of April 2021 as “a slice of mesmerizing electro from Milan”.
…and the latest is from our beloved Tracya with his “Mirroman” , where He “…energetically emphasizes the contrast between synthesizers and static pads, keeping exploring his trademark ambient-techno soundscapes by merging with a four-on-the-floor kick drum“, ….according to Deep House Sweden….. cheers 🙂
Next to come in 2021: Joao Ceser, Acid Castello, and many more….
“…showcasing some of the finest music we heard from XLR8R+ members last month. As per usual, we’re flattered by both the quality and quantity of entries, and after lots of discussions across our Slack channels, these are the tracks that pricked the ears of all the XLR8R editors.“:
