Andrea Fiorito is a celebrated artist with over twenty years experience to his name. With releases under his belt on esteemed labels Get Physical, Haunt, & Broquade, he now makes his highly-anticipated return to Cynosure Recordings with forthcoming digital LP release - Voodoo Grooves.

In late 2013, Andrea Fiorito’s suffered the loss of his uncle and decided to travel to South America to seek out a new beginning and perspectives. The newfound musical clarity this gave him led to the conception of ‘Voodoo Grooves’

“The album was recorded after my travels to South America at my house in Puglia, Italy. The studio was once my grandfather’s and is surrounded in 200 year old furniture and art. The environment here was sensually rich, and fuelled me with a huge source of inspiration for creating music after a long period of inactivity”

As a precursor to the album, Fiorito delivers us a three-track vinyl only teaser under the same title to give us taste of what is to come.

The opening track, ‘Rafael’, (the name of Fiorito’s aforementioned uncle, and a tribute to the man he described as a ‘best friend and guru’)  Is a poignant piece indeed, with stirring strings sitting alongside a delicate assembly of pianos.

‘Give Yourself To Me’, an instant dance floor mover that pushes things forward with tightly woven snare volleys that get you marching from the get go, accompanied by a punishing low end, and the occasional guitar lick for good measure.

The closing track ‘Brain and Butter’ is a propulsive tribal excursion designed for twilight zone dancefloor moments. Save for the occasional keyboard tinkles, the song is free of melody, comprised instead of a dense latticework of rolling percussion.

Voodoo Grooves digital LP will be released 6th April 2015.
