Mop Mop - Inspiration Information

Mop Mop - Inspiration Information

Playing tracks by

Lovisoni & Messina, Dorothy Ashby, Manasseh, Mario Nascimbene, Nitin Sawhney and more.

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."

40 acres to swing

I'm trying to say something new and clever about this set, but when something is really really good, to write a humble *thanks* is enough. So, thanks for this incredible set.

The Soul Preacher

Cool! Benini's new album "Isle Of Magic" was sent to me from Berlin. I think by himself, Legendary trombonist Fred Wesley is featured on a track called "Run Around". Check it out:
(I'm the author of Fred Wesley's discography and the play list actually consists out of three parts that in the sum contain four and a half hours of Mr. Wesley's guest recordings)


Great work, thanks for posting the link.

The Soul Preacher

Thank you LDBK. By the way Fred Wesley himself appreciated the three parts. The links are even on his blog. Needless to say that this made me very happy. For funky Fred Wesley Fans:

You will be surprised how rich Sir Fred is !!!!!!
