We learned to know Massimo Martellotta with his band, those Calibro 35 for which he wrote some of the most famous songs, some recently sampled by JayZ, Daemon Albarn and Dr.Dre, and with which he is celebrating in the best way the tenth anniversary since his birth. The composer and poly-instrumentalist Massimo Martellotta released in 5 volumes his personal project, realized in autonomy and solitude, playing all the instruments present in his studio/laboratory in Milan. One Man Sessions were published on vinyl by Cinedelic Records. Massimo's solo work was then refined by Tommaso Colliva's mastering and completed by the highly elegant graphic design conceived and created by Luca Barcellona.
