Andrea Fiorito is an artist driven by idealism, and fuelled by a restless creative spirit. From the experimental techno of “Tesi”, to his collections of releases on Cynosure, to the orchestral Argentine drama of his Get Physical debut “Proprio Tango”, he is an artist who has made music his life’s work. A native of Bari, southern Italy, Andrea recognised his own deep-seated creativity at an early age. Classical piano training from the age of 8 developed his musicality, while the filmmaking diploma he received as an adult helped to hone his unique auteur perspective, both on film, and in sound.
Andrea’s productions are a fearless combination of live instrumentation, minimalistic techno, and dissonant melodic elements that merge in unexpected harmony. His work process always begins with the kick drum, the track’s rhythmic heart, and the essence of body movement. His intricate arrangements bloom organically, creating extended melodic arcs that do away with standard 16-bar conventions. Through his work, Andrea is constantly seeking the penultimate marriage between acoustic and digital elements, using midi sounds, keyboards, and live instruments, developing each arrangement meticulously, over an extended period of time.
Andrea began buying records in 1994, learning and honing his skills as a DJ, and developing a love for underground house music. The sounds of Detroit techno and progressive soon beckoned, and with the introduction to minimal and electronica, he found his musical home. In 2002 Andrea became a core member of The Flame, the Bari record label and club night collective, and the vanguard of Italy’s contemporary house and techno scene. A staunch supporter of vinyl culture, Andrea views his commitment to analog DJing as an investment in his own community, and his deep understanding of the craft has led to notable bookings within Bari and further afield.
With his productions receiving attention from DJs and music connoisseurs throughout the world.
