I met Nicola a few years ago, I don’t remember where. I remember, however, that I played with my band and he played with his, Vulturum. Now that band no longer exists but there is Servant Songs, which is his solo project with which he released a great album last year called Life Without War. He also played at VOLUME a couple of years ago, for a festival called H E X which he, together with Maurizio Abate, helped me organize. He has always been a big friend of VOLUME and I am happy that he gave us this mix that well represents his huge musical sensitivity. It’s called “straniamento di primavera“.
