Italian producer Arturo Capone is a busy man, juggling art direction ,remixing and production work with his longstanding career as one of Italy's premier underground djs ,known for putting together the best mutant disco , deep house, Detroit techno, and straight up funk . As a producer he has developed his own unique sound and versatile style,catching the attention of the former Akwaaba/Chicken Lips member, Stevie Kotey, and becoming in part of the Bear Entertainment crew in 2005 alongside artists like Idjut Boys, Chicken Lips, Lindstrom, Prins Diaphanoids and Brennan Green.
After two vinyl releases, his debut album, "Miocuore", is finally upon us, Opener 'Svolvaer' is destined to take Arturo around the world in a Bear disco-dub spaceship. 'Svolvaer' is aptly named after Arturo's favourite place in Norway, a country home to fellow Bear Funk artists Lindstrom and Prins Thomas, both of whom are musical inspirations to him. The album covers all bases from deep and shuffly hypno-disco numbers like Curcuma and Rego Dancer to the more minimal & funky tracks such as 'Wondering ' and 'Artic Floors'. Also not forgeting the more melodic moments of the album with tracks such as 'Waves' and 'Spacewalk' full of dreamy effected guitars and sparkly pads.
Arturo Capone is a name you should know. And you will. Not just for the fact that his surname carries a certain fearsome respect in Italy and abroad. It s a family affair as they say, but you don t wanna mess with anyone from the Capone family!
