Genre: Electronic

In Italy, the Berlin School style of Electronic Music has found poor diffusion in the '70s; few were the musicians who have followed the German cosmic way: surely the most important among them was Baffo Banfi, keyboardist of the prog-band "Biglietto per l'Inferno" and author of beautiful albums with funny titles such as "Galaxy my dear" (1978) and "Ma, Dolce Vita" (1979), that we recommend everyone to listen to.

It’s a pleasure to meet today in Italy new disciples of the cosmic couriers such as Piero Monachello aka Alluste, who has offered his interpretation of the classic EM style in numerous albums composed from 2008 to date. Piero learns from the masters (Jean Michael Jarre, Vangelis, Tangerine Dream, Ashra...), but reworks their music with originality and personality, through an all-Italian sensibility: in Alluste's songs you can in fact perceive the bittersweet melodies typical of Italo-disco and the Mediterranean atmosphere of the great songwriter Pino Mango, one of the most refined and original representatives of Italian pop music of the 80s and 90s.

Alluste's music takes us to melancholic desert beaches, torrid unreal scenarios where the horizon is eternally blue and infinite, scenarios that bring to mind the stories of James G. Ballard as "The Terminal Beach" or "The Cage of Sand".
