In an effort to assist artists during these unprecedented times, last month Bandcamp decided to waive its cut of sales for an entire day, all of which went directly to the platform’s musicians. The initiative ended up so successful, in fact, that they planned to do it again today, May 1st. So here we are, with Music For Balconies 2.. a selection, as happened for the first volume, of alleged funny aliases and unreleased materials of various kinds by the label head Kreggo. Thank you for all the support !
heeellooooo:) I received a lot of requests to upload the mixes from the super radio shows we are doing, as archive, and especially for this one, which seems to have triggered a lot of friends and headz! so im happy to make it public for your psycho-physical well-being during these hard days, and to celebrate, and thanks for a big small victory...

LA SANTA - PAX MAFIOSA
Out Friday 16th of November - PRE-ORDER STARTS TODAY: https://wannamarchi.bandcamp.com/album/pax-mafiosa
CALABRIA, Southern Italy — a landscape of unmarked graves hidden by abandoned construction sites left as monuments to a corrupt state; a code of silence masking a culture of extreme cruelty; age-old folk traditions and occulted religious rites which refuse to acknowledge the passing of time; the secret brotherhoods; the holy bloodline and birthplace of the ‘Ndrangheta - part business, part religious order and part ancient military, now one of the most powerful organised crime groups in the world.
Broken Britain Cassettes inaugurates its World Service imprint with Pax Mafiosa, the first dispatch from La Santa, a native Calabrese, who delivers a concoction of ceremonial death chants, phone tappings and initiation rituals. Based around collaged samples from an inherited record collection, Pax Mafiosa invokes visceral fear and spiritual ecstasy with biting electronics and harrowing field recordings.
In Calabria the sacred and the profane are not mutually exclusive. The name ‘La Santa’ refers to both the Virgin Mary and the highest, most secretive level of The ‘Ndrangheta, a secret society within a secret society which links the top bosses with freemasons and extremist terror organisations. Pax Mafiosa is a sonic mapping of this dysfunctional marriage of mafia and religion.
“Giuro di portare sempre con me questa boccetta di veleno e, se per disgrazia dovessi tradire questi nuovi fratelli di Santa, di avvelenarmi con le mie stesse mani.”

New Podcast: INTERRUPTIONS #17. Vietata la vendita. Sonorizzazioni e commenti sonori: library music made in Italy.
Curated by Raül G. Pratginestós
Italians have always had a unique way of mixing music and drama, a special sensibility that accounts for the dominant role of music in the history of Italian film to the extent that many of the most highly admired soundtrack composers (Ennio Morricone, Nino Rota, Bruno Nicolai, Piero Piccioni and innumerable others) are Italian. It's no wonder then that Italy, which had its own major international film industry during the fifties and sixties, generated an enormous demand for music for films of the most diverse genres (from neo-realist or psychological dramas to spaghetti-westerns, peplum, gialli, spy movies, poliziotteschi, comedies and erotic films) and engendered a parallel music industry with composers from the most disparate fields (from jazz to 'serious' music). This prominent sub-industry was the backdrop to the fascinating and still relatively unknown world of library music 'Made in Italy'. A scene with very particular traits that is stirring up increasing interest in the strange parallel world of 'library music'.
