Italian producer My Dry Wet Mess, aka Giovanni Civitenga, is a name that has resonated in the world of left field/beats since it’s exciting fledgling years. Though his father is the bass player for Ennio Morricone’s orchestra and a studio guitarist on numerous Italian records, from a young age Gio was drawn towards hip hop. At the age of 14 his father gave him a sampler and an Atari; his beatmaking experiments grew boundless. Having released albums on Daedleus’ Magical Properties imprint and Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder, it is a great pleasure for Fine Grains to present his debut vinyl release – the ‘Laptop Lapdance EP’. It comes equipped with remixes from Ikonika, Dam Mantle & Auntie Flo and is available in the stores listed below, and more, from the 7th July. Support and airplay so far from Gilles Peterson, Tom Ravenscroft (BBC R6), B.Traits & Rob Da Bank (BBC R1). ‘Infinito’ video by Florence To.
