LORENZO MORRESI & TENDERLONIOUS

Lorenzo Morresi & Tenderlonious

Cosmica Italiana

    In the late 1960s and early 1970s Italian soundtrack and library music went through its most experimental, prolific and dazzling period having a strong radio presence in both Europe and the US. Musicians and composers such as Piero Umiliani, Amleto Armando Roelens and even Ennio Morricone were regularly experimenting with idiosyncratic combinations of jazz, electronic, progressive, disco, funk and psych genres.

    It was their mutual love of these 60s and 70s soundtracks that brought Lorenzo Morresi and Tenderlonious together. After performing alongside each other at a festival in Italy back in 2017 the idea was quickly conceived to put together a fresh take starting with that early 1970s Italian style, using contemporary analogue inspired arrangements combined with experimental and joyful 'tongue in cheek' sounds that could work on the dance floor as well as at home.

    Tracks like "Nuda Sorgente", "Doppio Sogno" and "Estate" are club oriented with a musical crossover from old- to- new. 'Estate' is a cover from the classic jazz standard by Italian singer Bruno Martino. Tender and Morresi worked tirelessly between Italy and London for approximately 2 years carefully shaping their album 'Cosmica Italiana': "With this project we've done our best to deliver our own interpretation of this wonderful era of Italian music and rediscover a beautiful genre, whilst maintaining a strong respect and admiration for the sounds that those original Italian masters created. Their records impressed and inspired us and we hope it will be the same for our listeners today."

    Lorenzo Morresi & Tenderlonious

    Cosmica Italiana

    Italian DJ, producer and musician Lorenzo Moressi makes his debut on South London imprint 22a alongside label boss Tenderlonious, with a 7” album sampler of Italian library inspired disco-funk. In the 1970’s, Italian soundtrack and Library music went through it’s most experimental, prolific and dazzling period. Musician’s and composers such as Piero Umiliani, Alessandro Alessandroni and even Ennio Morricone were experimenting with idiosyncratic combinations of jazz, electronic, disco, funk and psych, regularly for TV, film scores and advertising.

    Their output from this period was wonderfully joyful, atmospheric and ironic, with it’s treasures only now encountered by the most dedicated of diggers and enthusiasts. It was the mutual love of these 70’s soundtracks that brought Lorenzo and Tenderlonious together. After meeting at a festival in Italy back in 2017 they quickly bonded over Jay Richford and Gary Steven’s album “Feelings’, actually produced by Italian composer Stefano Torossi. The idea was quickly conceived to put together a fresh take on that ‘70s Italian style, with contemporary analog sounding arrangements and experimental, joyful “tongue in cheek” sounds that could work on the dancefloor as well as at home. Cosmica Italiana & Nuda Sorgente are the first two tracks taken from Lorenzo Moressi and Tenderlonious’ album due for release in 2021 on 22a.
