Drummers Inc: Tommaso Cappelleto.
Italian musician, producer, DJ and composer Tommaso Cappellato is a musical maverick ‐ running the gamut from free‐form techno to hip‐hop production and jazz improvisation. Mentored by jazz visionaries Harry Whitaker (Black Renaissance), Michael Carvin (Pharoah Sanders) and collaborator with techno master Donato Dozzy, Tommaso’s seemingly unorthodox breadth of style and vision gives us a truly unique new school artist. Tomasso takes over Drummers Inc for this week to showcase the weirder aspect of his record collection.
We usher in the week with a special mix from Paquita Gordon recorded live at La Triennale di Milano museum in occasion of “Triennale Design Week 2017″. Paquita is resident at club Plastic in Milan and has been an esteemed selector for over 10 years.
