WeMe Records | 2018
Produced between the end of 2013 and 2017, Acid Hologram is a record that travels between past, present and future. It is a real mix of different stiles, this makes it difficult to define as a genre. Analogue incursions typical of acid and electro fuse with the melodic immediacy of trance, cohabit with cruel drum breaks and crazy IDM interventions, creating a scenario composed of different styles and nuances, bizarre as well as emotional, enveloped by an idea of euphoria typical of the underground music of the early 90s, that allowed us to rediscover a personal sound, without compromise.
Many of the songs on this album have been unexpectedly supported on important radio show as the famous NTS Radio, and I Love Acid by Posthuman,

Moonwater is the outcome of various compositional experiences from early 2012, prior to the debut album "Musil Live”, where the result was a sound that was equally close to Industrial and Concrete music. This path partly maintains the concept of soundscape, through the revisiting of field recordings, but unlike the industrial denotation of the previous record, the theme here is the environment, old tapes recoding sessions of natural ambiences. The rhythm is made up of insects sounds or the noise of a falling stone in a pond, voice samples, taken from old documentaries on VHS, and random noises of radio and TV frequencies.
A record that exploring various styles showing a strong sense of research, receiving an excellent response, reviewed by Elisa Miglionico for DJ Mag Italy.

EVES | 2014
Musil Live is the first official release under the alias Dual. This EP is a live recording of the performance that took place in Brescia’s "Museo Del Lavoro" in 2013. As the museum’s artists in residence, Dual sampled the industrial machines and manipulated the recordings for three days to produce this four-track album. The industrial machines’ metallic percussions and creaking sounds create a cold and industrial atmosphere, which lead into deep harmonies and melodies.
A record, receiving an excellent response, reviews on: On Frequencies (BEATS TIPS BOUTIQUE VOL. 25). Soundwall, (CRUMBS, Special section for the new electronic music Italian talents). DLSO (Ontherocks list of Friday). In the same year Dual was requested as an opening guest from the Port Royal band.

We often call useless what we can’t understand, but it is what we do not understand that can intrigue us, pushing us beyond the surface of things, is this what you are looking for?
