What is your name and role within Dadub?
Daniele Antezza: Post-shamanistic deconstructed recursions
Marco Donnarumma: Infinite old school dub resampling via metamorphic anime sagas.
Where are you currently based and what is the music scene like there?
We’re atm both Berlin based, and as you might guess there’s pretty much everything your taste could be hungry of.
How did you first start playing music?
We were both playing in bands since we were kids, since then our interest in music creation has grown exponentially. You just do it, really. There isn’t any particular reason.
What’s been happening recently?
A massive pandemic which is making pretty clear how the neoliberal system we live in is totally inadequate in terms of sustainability and prone to exploitation of everything that lives (or not). Besides the full dystopia we’re going through, we’re doing our best to keep on and to feed Dadub. And more dystopia, of course.
Please tell us about your up coming EP, influences, where you recorded, who with..?
The EP is the result of a really long process. The influences are too many to be listed, but include artists in Dub, Metal, Trap and ritualistic music. These are tracks we have been composing, mixing and remixing several times throughout a few years. What’s interesting about the EP is that it marked our loving relationship with metal distortions and their insane richness when plugged in dub feedback systems.
You’ve also had a recent line up change, how and why did this come about? That happened about three, four years ago. Daniele and Giovanni did amazing work together and then came the time for each of them to take different directions. Since a few years now Daniele and Marco have joined forces to bring the Dadub sound beyond its comfort zone and explore new sonic territories.
What’s planned for the April 9th launch at Tresor with SCORN!?
Well, we were very excited about this, Scorn is a hero. Unfortunately, as everyone knows, at the moment all public events are blocked due to the COVID-19 Emergency. We truly hope the show can happen some time in the near future.
What do you think about the current state of world affairs and how is it effecting you and your music?
It’s a dangerous times, especially for people living precarious lives. Life in capitalistic societies is going to change for good. We don’t think anything right now, other than caring for our loved ones. It’s very important that people worldwide do not take this pandemic lightly. We recommend to read less news and more science. Virologists have the most useful things to say these days.
What do you like to do away from music?
Have mystical experiences through combinations of vapors and fluids. Read books. Loads of ‘em.
Who are you listening to at the moment?
Scorn. Empress Sativa. Blasphemer. Daighila. Griselda Records. Mønic. Ena. Swarmm. Lemna. Death Qualia.
What’s planned for 2020?
We had shows and other public outings which at least for now are obviously not happening any more. So we will try our best to convey frustration, desperation and perhaps hope into new music fitting these times.
