In 2016 the Italo-Canadian dj/producer Bruno Belissimo has released his first full-length album on the label Locale Internazionale. Funk, Italo Disco, Masters at Work and Deep House, French Touch, Brassica and the Scandinavian Space Disco, Lounge and Balearic atmospheres, B-movies, vintage synths, saxophones, tremendous bass- lines, minimal beats. When Italian wit meets Canadian perfectionism.. this is Bruno Belissimo’s sound.
Bruno started to collect material for the album during the last four years. He toured in Italy as bass player with the songwriter Colapesce’s band and then travelled extensively around the world (Paris, Middle-East, Berlin, London, Chile). Once he was settled in a town for a while Bruno started to work on the tracks with a spontaneous attitude, trying not to think too much about the result.
A modern funk music, Italo Disco but with brand new distinctive elements. Songs have been undressed and reduced to the essential in order to reach “the swing”. Bruno played all over the world in the last year with gigs in Italy, India, Chile, Sweden, Spain and Czech Republic and his new album, titled Ghetto Falsetto, is going to be released on May 2018.
