about

Italian DJ, producer and musician Lorenzo Morresi makes his debut on 22a, alongside label boss Tenderlonious, with a 7” album sampler of Italian library inspired disco-funk.

In the 1970’s, Italian soundtrack and Library music went through it’s most experimental, prolific and dazzling period. Musician’s and composers such as Piero Umiliani, Alessandro Alessandroni and even Ennio Morricone were regularly experimenting with idiosyncratic combinations of jazz, electronic, disco, funk and psych, which were used for TV, film scores and advertising. Their output from this period was wonderfully joyful, atmospheric and ironic, with it’s treasures only now encountered by the most dedicated of diggers and enthusiasts.

It was the mutual love of these 70’s soundtracks that brought Lorenzo and Tenderlonious together. After performing alongside each other at a festival in Italy back in 2017 they quickly bonded over a shared love of Jay Richford and Gary Steven’s album ‘Feelings’, which was produced by Italian composer Stefano Torossi. The idea was quickly conceived to put together a fresh take on that 70’s Italian style, with contemporary analogue inspired arrangements and experimental, joyful “tongue in cheek” sounds that could work on the dancefloor as well as at home.

‘Cosmica Italiana’ & ‘Nuda Sorgente’ are the first two tracks taken from Lorenzo Morresi and Tenderlonious’s forthcoming album, which is due for release on 22a in 2021.
