- Perseidi EP
Crosstown Rebels | 20.07.2015
Italian techno evangelist Francesca Lombardo sets up her forthcoming album on Crosstown Rebels with the ‘Perseidi’ EP, paired with a remix from highly revered producer Aril Brikha.
“Perseidi is named after a meteor shower called perseids,’ explains Francesca, ‘Perseidi is the Italian name for it, which comes from the constellation Perseus. The astral shower happens mid July till 15 August so this record is coming out at the right time.”
Representative of her multi-disciplinary musical background, Francesca’s music transcends the dance floor; each track providing an emotional narrative, full of wistful dreamy soundscapes, stirring melodies, deep, hypnotic rhythms and her unforgettable vocals. Featuring live instrumentalists, merging the world of electronic music with Francesca’s classical upbringing, the Perseidi EP is a combination of grand and orchestral compositions, together with subtle, nuanced numbers – a healthy balance that epitomises Francesca’s sound ethic; mature, refined and powerful.
Born in Iran and raised in Sweden, Aril Brikha forged his career with one of the biggest techno records of all time, ‘Groove La Chord’. Aril Brikha’s now contributes his talents on a remix of the title track “Perseidi” which is equally as cinematic. Fusing sweeping chords with subtle beats to create an epic classic.
