Italian DJ/producer Bruno Belissimo has released a striking set of visuals for his new single ‘Boloña Baleárica’, giving birth to a new dose of retro electro Italo disco.
The track is taken from Bruno’s second studio album ‘Ghetto Falsetto’, which is an expression Bruno forged to define the amusing game between reality and fiction, between stereotype and innovation. ‘Boloña Baleárica’ is enriched with jazz, house and Balearic beats, and is the perfect seasonal track for those long summer nights.
Bruno provides a little insight behind the creative process of the track: “’Boloña Baleárica’ is an homage to the sweaty and sweltering city of Bologna burnt by the sun in the scorching summer season. High cliffs instead of hills, fresh fish instead of Ragù and the surrounding sea instead of the city. This is the perfect soundtrack for your holidays in Bologna. The story follows Stefano the body builder, Anna the tourist and me, through a sweat and dream-like Italian holiday”
Growing up in the suburbs of Toronto, Bruno’s father directed independent sci-fi movies and owned a movie-rental business, immersing the young musician in a creative environment from an early age. He went on to win a scholarship at the Royal Conservatory of Music, where he began to study upright bass and composition before discovering a passion for electronic sounds. Before the release of his 2016 eponymous debut, Bruno toured Italy with the Sicilian electro-wave artist Colapesce, all the while collating material for his atmospheric album.
Bruno’s nebulous soundscapes and flecks of electronic discord are proving to be irresistible. Check out the full album below.
