About the release:

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Martin Luther King, Jr

Since we heard for the first time the music of Gianluca Petrella something within us got changed. Deep, incisive, fine, introspective.
All that our soul has always loved and looked for…

In the “electronic area” he has collaborated with 9lazy9 (Ninja Tunes) and performed with the worldwide famous avant duo Matmos. In the same music fields stands the collaboration with Ricardo Villalobos and Max Loderbauer for the project Re:ECM.

“103 Ep” is traveling on the most intimate and electronic side of Gianluca’s music, clarifying its fine taste with a series of cinematic atmospheres described with the combination of haunting jazz melodies with obscure electronic pathways.
This record captures completely the atmospheres evoked by dark cities, midnight, smoky streets, loneliness, existentialism and romanticism, allowing you to experience the jazz music from an unusual perspective.

This precious Ep is served on a 180gram Audiophile.

A special mention goes to the front cover, a mountainous painting realized by Swiss painter Conrad Jon Godly whose special talent brings realism to his work, giving an exceptional level of authenticity.
