Italian musician Andrea Benini began playing drums at age 14. Since then, he is exploring a large variety of musical genres, from Club to Jazz music. In 2005, he founded Mop Mop; a band mixing Jazz, Soul, Funk, Caribbean, Latin and African vibes with an Italian Postmodern twist.
Before going on tour with his band Andrea recorded this mix for us:
"I've always been attracted by every kind of music. Well... let's say by every kind of good music. From the past to the present. I've never considered myself as a big "fan" of one genre of music in particular. I'm inspired by a range of styles including Spiritual Jazz, Soul, Electronics, Tropical, New Groove just to mention a few. My "Inspiration Information" mixtape is a journey into sounds that somehow captivated my ears.
Hope you'll enjoy."
