Cascao & Lady Maru are a quirky-electro-duo, coming from the saucy-punk-no-wave scene of the aethernal Rome.
Cascao works as a sound engeneer ,a producer and a theather actor . he has been playing and still plays in various wave, post punk,noise and electronic projects of the freaky roman underground (Nastro, for example) , whereas Lady Maru is a techno and house dj and has been touring around with her no wave bands like Dada Swing and Trouble vs Glue (new record out soon).
they started their work togheter in 2008 and it quickly turned into a wacky-dancey live act, with guitar, synthie, some live samples and percussions... funny tribalism and poppy arty melodies: evoking talking heads, the residents, and the proto 70'ies 80 ies wave stuff.
During their first european tour in Berlin they met Khan of "i am single records" .He took them on his label at first with 2 singles "Tropical Tasting " and "Burundance" with remixes by Khan, Rodion, Vinny Villbass , Ikuo, then with their first full lenghth album "Gong" , postproduced and mixed by Rodion(Gomma rec.), november 2011.
One other pop single came out in December 2011 on Glamnight Records, a nice roman electro-house label, running some great busy electro nights.
In 2014 they have released 4 tracks on an italian techno and electronic label called I-Electronix , one of these tracks, "Keep it on ", has been featured on various beatport's nu -disco charts.
So... time for a new full length release now . The new LP Spleenism is coming out on vinyl and digital on San Francisco's based Cochon records : pop elements and tribal funky rythmn with slightly dark atmosphere ...
"We've been trying to minimise arrangements, and to use mostly analog instruments ..this way it can be easier to play the songs live without needing prerecorded phrases, and It allows us to have a more percussive and rough way of developing melodies..Spleenism is a selection of the songs we wrote in the last 2 years that have this features .. actually except for the first song that we have chosen as a dreamy introduction to the album."
