Emanuele Pertoldi was born in a small village in the North East of Italy where he still lives. Since he was a child he had a strong passion for music and it became stronger and stronger. He took a degree in Modern Music - Music Production in Bologna.
Sound research, passion, creativity and emotions are the key elements of his tracks.
He founded Evasion Room Records with Riccardo D'Agostini in 2011 and Evasion Room Live with Riccardo, Daniele and Andrea, a live based on improvisations only with hardware machines and synths. With Andrea only, they produce and perform as Tripsolate & Redundænt.
Some solo productions came out as Redundænt too, including an album on Ovunqve.
In 2013 he started a new alias, Shaded Explorer, with the aim to represent himself in a more intimate way. The description of the project says he lives in a place where the music is hidden behind a dense fog and dreams are suffocated by an unpromising reality. This stimulates him to continue his research of magical places around the world, being them ethereal landscapes, deep cenotes or blue seas. In those places he discovered and created new sounds, melodies and rhythms that melted together create soundscapes for escape.
The first release was an album on Eclipsemusic that was also played live with hardware at Club To Club in Turin, following live sets also at Tresor, Le Batofar and more.
In 2014 he founded his own intimate imprint Shaded Explorations.
Now he's one of the great masks of ambient music and deep sounds, especially after the releases on Silent Season and Kabalion Records.
He is also half of Mørk, with his Berlin based friend Devincenti Francesco. The project is focused on hardware only live acts too. They also launched Doble Bilder, a vinyl record label to release their own music without compromises.
Another new project is Mykja, were Emanuele and Christian Pevere share their passion for synths and nature, merging together their different experiences into something genuine and spontaneous.
With his projects, he played at Tresor.Berlin (DE), Le Batofar (FR), The Frag (ITA), Vicious Club (ITA), Fiese Remise (DE), Griessmuehle (DE), Tribal Club (UK), Sala X (SPA), BHo! (ITA), and other parties, clubs and festivals like Club 2 Club, iClaut, Homepage, One Eyed Jack, Thursdaydeep, etc.
