interview by RICCARDO SARLO
Thomas, orphan of the night and of its colorful constellations. Radiated light by that intense, deep, crumbled coal. Creepy fear, fraternal glimpse, candid skin of swollen voice, electrified. Agglomeration of intents and of infinite passions, steep lives, arid cliffs soaked with crystal oceanic water. Sanguine red, haunted by young souls, yet old, ancient. Tested to the blink of an eye. Impulse, ira. Hottest twilight, iridescent marmoreal moon.
With “Berlin”, your new artistic project’s first single for FLUIDOSTUDIO, you unveil your identity. Your full legal name and your face bring with them multiple aspects of your essence, tearing silence with an impetuous desire of showing up and, especially, of expressing yourself.
Right, and this is metaphorically made even in the video that goes with the single, through the unveiling shown by the red curtain’s fall on the final. You know, in my previous and quotas works, as a producer and dj, many times I haven’t felt the need of showing myself. After I got back from Paris, ended the first pandemic phase, through writing I have had the need of expressing my creativity: showing it through my name and my face. Even thanks to the creative minds that have helped me, especially from the aesthetic point of view, expanding my musical project and enriching it with images and sensations storytelling. The reaction toward this historical moment, therefore, runs through musical rebellion that brings with it my name and my story.
Berlin, as free expression ground, lives to your eyes a moment of stalemate, of thoughtful arrest. “The night is ending in Berlin”, as you sing in the lyrics. A suspended space, a “between” rich in expectations. This future metamorphosis, how do you imagine it?
Obviously the city will not be the same coming back to normality, but this represents its charm too, its perennial metamorphosis. I am scrutinizing this deprivation of freedom, my world’s forced shutdown, that one of nightlife, from a proactive perspective though. A lock to a frenetic lifestyle, that risked being increasingly inclined to rolling on, opens to a surely more sensible dimension. Wellness and entertainment are no longer obvious and my, our, physical and metaphysical future journey within reality will be more and more driven from real necessity rather than mere opportunity.
In the “Berlin” video transpires your desire of expressing yourself through the multiple directions towards a body can head. A voice, the language, the dress, a space. It transpires the purpose of building up your own world, your own narration in which your rules are applied.
After a misunderstood, at other people’s eyes, childhood and adolescence my personality came up criticized and stressed up. My necessity is to create a community, a factory, in which diversities can coexist and hybridize themselves. To this world of mine belong different people with different stories and different ages, yet united by the same, profound, consciousness of their body, of living a known place at the same time perpetually changeable and multifaceted. The club becomes, therefore, fertile ground of knowledge, of exchange, of learning and pleasure.
