About

The story began three years ago when the stars above London aligned in a mysterious manner never seen before and Luca Cazal and Sebastiano (Sebi) Properzi formed their mystical musical partnership. In the years since they have set about constructing the foundation of their Invisible Cities, cultivating a sublime, diverse collection of sounds informed by their own multi-faceted backgrounds. From punk to reggae, psychedelia, folk and contemporary electronic music, there has been very little that they haven't digested and reconfigured into their own output.

Luca took up the piano at the age of 12 and, after moving to London when he was 18, joined several punk bands finally finding a home with the Cazals. As one-fifth of the group he toured with Babyshambles, Bloc Party and Daft Punk - reaching out as far as Japan. But, as most bands do, the Cazals split into seperate entities and Luca's spirit found a new home in the world of electronic music.

Meanwhile Sebastiano's journey into the outer realms of the musical universe began when he was a schoolboy. Having caught the proverbial bug with his school band, it was a few years later as a young adult in the early nineties when he immersed himself in the world of clubbing. A friend then enlightened Sebi by introducing him to his studio, which is where the love affair really began. Though it wasn't until he moved to Ibiza in 2001 when musical wizardry became his true calling.

Their official debut as Luca C & Brigante came in the form of 'Morals', a bouncy and infectiously sultry sprinkling of dancefloor stardust. Prior to that, they had established their partnership with the Double Drop re-edits EP injecting the Balearic spirit they have both absorbed through their own unique journeys into one single body of work.

The White Island is where the foundations of their Invisible Cities began to take shape, the structures slowly forming out of intensive sessions with their extended family. In their cosmic bunker deep in the Ibizan hills they experimented with sound, melding their individual histories together with live instruments and vocalists to create a collective of extraordinary talents. Zeben Jameson (A Mountain Of One), Findlay Brown, Kenny Glasgow and Roisin Murphy have been among their assembled team. Out of this fertile pool of creativity came their album project, an uncompromising trip into their outerworldly take on music comprised entirely of songs and live instrumentation.

A key influence on this exciting body of work is the afro/cosmic scene, which was born in their homeland, Italy, in the late seventies. A heady cocktail predominantly comprised psychedelic rock and disco, plus lots more, popularised by DJs like Daniele Baldelli and Beppe Loda. Inspiration from this era permeates through the album, intertwined with their 21st Century sensibilites. While, the collective's title, from the surrealist novel by Italo Calvino, serves as a further indication of the duo's deep-seated appreciation of culture and the way in which it has filtered through into their musical output.

An unerring symbiosis between these two musicians has formed in a short space of time and, with the combined cosmic energy of their associates and the mystical allure of Ibiza, they are perfectly poised to create a legacy which will last an eternity.
