Mai Mai Mai
As a child, Toni Cutrone aka Mai Mai Mai followed his parents around Europe and the Near East, ending up in the south of Italy, assimilating different cultures, atmospheres and sonorities of the places he was involuntarily taken to. These sensations and sounds were intense enough to leave indelible traces in his music, but Roman noise omnivore Cutrone own decade-plus experience in the Italian underground has doubtless played a role as well .
Each and everyone of Mai Mai Mai poisonous, punishing electronic miasmas are named after characters of the Greek alphabet, beginning with Theta (Boring Machines, 2013) and followed by Δέλτα (Delta) (Yerevan Tapes, 2014).
Φ (Phi) is the third and final installment in his Mediterranean trilogy, pushing the project deeper into a vivid interzone of digital synthesis and scorched ritual, out October 21st on Not Not Fun Records and Boring Machines.
In the last years, Mai Mai Mai grew into a killer live act, he was invited at Liverpool Psych Fest 2015 and played lots of shows around Europe with fellow bands like Gnod, Silver Apples and more.
“Cutrone deserves admiration for how much he crams into such a short space of time, preventing the listener from ever locking the record into the straightjackets of genre and influence.” – The Quietus
“Mai Mai Mai trades in energising blasts of biomechanical synth noise which snarl and throb like a demonically possessed star cruiser” – The Wire
“Mai Mai Mai is evolving as rapidly as the protagonist of Splice, and each installment has grown more ominous. We like where this artist is headed.” – A closer listen
