Kantocast 008 - Mop Mop - Orient
Updated: Apr 12, 2019
Andrea Benini (Mop Mop) joins us with his Orient mixtape and once again takes a wonderful imaginary trip to a place which echoes and results in another deep musical trip.
Mop Mop is the brainchild of Berlin-based Italian multi-instrumentalist, producer and composer Andrea Benini. He has been active for more than ten years exploring a large variety of musical genres. Anyone familiar will already know that their refined postmodern style allowed the band to reach the international film business as part of Woody Allen‘s “To Rome With Love“ soundtrack.
“There are other places out there“ Sun Ra knew about these places outta space, Mop Mop now takes a journey from a mystical bright shining star called “Adhara“ to mother earth, being aliens from a kind of similar but yet different planet which they had to leave as they have destroyed and abused their ground, now in search of a new land. Looking at our blue planet from a different point of view.
“Show me this place they call earth and let me land this ship“ says Anthony Joseph in one of the key tracks “Spaceship: Earth“.
