STILL

STILL is a collaborative project of Milanese producer and Hundebiss label boss Simone Trabucchi. Inspired by Italy’s colonial history with Ethiopia and the complex ties between that country and Jamaican symbolism, Trabucchi’s LP I shaped up as an experimental dancehall album full of futuristic, bass-heavy “riddms”. The starting point for STILL is a series of works entitled Negus, initiated together with the visual artist Simone Bertuzzi, which includes sculptures and installations as well as an artist’s book and a documentary including Jamaican producer-legend Lee “Scratch” Perry. Trabucchi’s project, understood as an ongoing process, amounts to a cluster of the most varied influences. Central to them is the idea of a connective network of individual personalities, stories, and symbols of the cultures of both Ethiopia and the African diaspora. STILL’s tracks are lent an expressive voice by the African-Italian vocalists Devon Miles, Keidino, Taiywo, Freweini, Elinor, and Germay, all of whom will be heard loud, clear, and live at HYPERREALITY!
