Hot project from our friend DJ Ermi: the hands of the title relate to his friends contribution to it. In Everybody, he teams up with producer Malekà to create an unmissable trippy deep landscape. In Tonight, with the collaboration of Tomateck, the vibe is much more funk oriented. If you like you music organic, try this one out. With “The First Violin” we welcome Miss. Gracy Lagana’. Her magic touch captured us at first listen.
A solid, well conceived EP, first one on our catalogue, and we’re proud it’s from our man DJ Ermi.
MALEKA’ aka Giuseppe Caiazzo is an electronic music composer and a DJ/turntablist. He comes to his project/netlabel Silence+OtherSounds after several years of DJing, producing beats, remixing and playing gigs with SbirroFunk (Dubspot Records, RecordKicks, LaidBackRadio, GiantStep), a previous project recognized as one of the most interesting “cinematic sound” realities in Italy. The name Silence+OtherSounds is a sincere stealing from the late 70’s soul singer Roxy Robinson, who made a record in the glorious Italo-disco era, collaborating with renowned Italian musicians of the time (even if Roxy has not exercised particular influence on Selfscape). Not exactly a club maniac, Giuseppe spends many and many hours alone in his studio and sometimes with other musicians/friends who gladly help him during nocturnal recording sessions. In more than 10 years of activity in the underground (literally, his home studio is located in a basement), G. found time to learn congas (mainly tumbao and samba), graduate in engineering, earn a PhD and working as a researcher in Naples, his hometown.
GRACY LAGANA’ began studying the violin at 6 years old and graduated from the Conservatory with honors. She has worked with major italian orchestras. Since 1997 she has been playing regulary in the first violins of the San Carlo Theatre orchestra. She is an eclectic violinist and loves to play on her instrument, from jazz to electronic music creating new and particular atmospheres.

DJ Ermi is back with the “Hands EP” where he teams up with Maleka for a deep spacy excursion on “Everybody”, then together with Tomateck he gives us the organic funktified “Together”. Finally there is wonderful laidback “The first violin” featuring Gracy Lagana. Mike Fossati
