Caporale Massimiliano has been a consistent rising star since he appeared in the Afro House scene. With releases on such labels as Nylon Trax, Cover Music, Irma Rec, House Tribe Rec, Cabana Records, Forever Ride, Muted Trax, MoBlack and Vida Records he has a knack for creating what’s needed to fill the sound waves with the secret ingredient of ethereal sensuality. His latest offering is no different.
Usually the lone wolf when releasing music, Massimiliano’s latest, M. Caporale & Friends, due to be released on MoBlack Records exclusively on Traxsource November 20, 2015 and worldwide December 20, 2015, is a collaboration of some of the most unique production voices one can experience.
M. Caporale & Friends (Vol 1) brings production new comer, Adam Gibbons (Boston) into the spotlight with “Truth Sayer”. This is Adam Gibbons second released production collaboration and it’s a strong, rich original undertaking that fuses an Afro House base line with funk and elements of the Caribbean – it’s kinetic and hypnotic to the dancer. “Truth Sayer” is designed to keep you grounded while lifting you to unexpected heights.
The second delight came in the form of “Rain” with Montreal born Myles Bigelow. Hardly new to the music scene, the collaboration of these two is a deeply sensual movement of the spirit that doesn’t play it safe. Percussions coupled with the weaving of distinctive rhythms and drops reach deep inside to create the essence of dancing in the rain.
Massimiliano has managed to bring attention to a medium within Afro House that has largely been overlooked. The texture of Middle Eastern influences is clear in his collaboration with Morocco born Cee Elassad. “Arabic Bird” is a beautifully meditative production that stays in the air long after the last “chirp” is felt.
M. Caporale & Friends makes a stop in Spain bringing D’Oke on board with “Olo-Du-Mare”. This chant laden Deep Afro joint is a fitting collaboration between two producers that pour their experience and passion into what they love.
The anticipation of M Caporale & Friends Vol 1 is palpable. This is a release that lovers of music will appreciate for a long time and over and over again.
A project that's near and dear to both Tantra Zawadi and me. Inspired by the strength and wisdom her beloved father imparted to her before his transition, I'm honored to be part of and share in the realization of this project.
Original production by Dana A. Byrd , Frank Williams and others (details coming soon) with beautiful live instrumentation and Spoken Word.
More news coming as we put the pieces together.
