We’re excited to announce a new LP from Antoni Maiovvi!
Available to preview and pre-order here:
Antoni Maiovvi’s “The Dead Of Winter” is a semi-faux soundtrack album in the vein of the British composers more classically cinematic works. Sonically the album resembles a sort of
Deathrock Danny Elfman locking horns with Howard Shore piloting Sunn O)))’s dopemobile… at night… in the fog.
“The Dead Of Winter” is a collection of unused themes made for a very real movie that for various tax break reasons were unable to be
used. Not wanting to waste the work already completed, the cues were finished without picture and arranged here as their own
narrative, with the idea to transport the listener to a snowy, isolated, old building filled with secrets and demons.
A producer born in Bristol (UK), previously located in Berlin and Den Haag, now located in New Haven, Connecticut, USA, under the alias Antoni Maiovvi began following the inspirations of Obscure Disco, Synth Disco and Italo-Disco, but work also is heavily in debt to Film Soundtracks. Founder of Giallo Disco along with Vercetti Technicolor.
This was also given a preview at Fangoria!
“Maiovvi makes creating danceable horror themes feel like it’s effortless, so hearing him grow artistically, experimenting with more traditional sounds while incorporating a lot of experimental, even musique concrete-adjacent elements, is fun and almost educational for his fans — without feeling like they’re getting their vegetables, even if they really are… The Dead of Winter is exactly this kind of work, combining disparate elements in unexpected and welcome ways to both satisfy our existing appetites and cultivate new ones going forward.”
