Butterflying — the latest offering from Italian multi-instrumentalist, producer and selector, Tommaso Cappellato — is an honest celebration of musical evolution.
Inspired by a recent trip to NYC (where he spent most of his formative years) and a beat tape by definition, these eight tracks saunter between lo-fi hip hop and free jazz, from downtempo electronica to ambient bliss; the result of an open-hearted approach to discovery and time spent meticulously unearthing, rearranging and merging old and new material.It’s this ‘built with care’ attitude that makes Butterflying the perfect first release on dj/producer Patrick Gibin’s groundbreaking new venture, Mother Tongue. Started in 2019, it houses an independent record label, vinyl pressing plant, distribution and shop under one roof, prioritising growing quality relationships with quality artists.
