NEW SINGLE COLLAB
Here is a demo and a 3D video for the single.
Here you can download the stems. I used OB6, Prophet6, my 808 rimshot and Beatmaker Vice.
The graphic project is by Dreamfibre.
My new album, Extranet Metaverse (to be released in late 2022) collects all the soundtracks of these digital works bringing to life a story set in 2087 about the Extranet Corporation, the only official provider of the new network that connects every human being to a Metaverse with a microscopic graft, the Metagraft™ .
You can listen to some finished tracks here.
I am currently negotiating with crypto.com to release the whole record with them and related vinyl, of different rarity, at a different price.
The vinyl will be very limited and will have extraordinary workmanship, will be of different colors (and materials!) depending on the rarity, like in a video game, and will have an illustrated booklet with the whole story of the record. A never-before-seen and very futuristic project.
In any case this physical media project will be created and my label Timeslave Recordings would alternatively already be interested.
Of course you can intervene as you like in the project, we can reason together on the arrangement, you can also edit the theme if you think so. The recording studio for all my records will do the mix and master.
I planned to release this single on October-November 2022. If you preferred earlier, even from August onwards.
NEON PRINCE (2020)

This album is set in Tokyo of 2085, and tells of a photographer, Kazuhiko, who lives in Shinjuku.
He is passionate about neon lights, dark atmospheres, he dreams of capturing the perfect light in the night.

Video interview for Synthwavemania about Neon Prince
I started playing piano at the age of 6. After 15 years of study and several concerts as a solo pianist and composer, I discovered synthesizers and electronic music.
My first electronic projects date back to 2008.
In all these years I have participated and played live at hundreds of events all over Italy and and experiments for the Italian Institute of Technology.
In 2018 I decided to devote myself totally to synthwave music and take on the new identity NEONTENIC.
I produce NFTs as official creator on crypto.com and soon on Opensea.
I run one of the largest Instagram pages dedicated to synthwave and cyberpunk imagery, with now over 160K followers.

Released December 17th 2021, with Ultrawave I tried to keep my signature sound, but filled with steroids. The aim was to push synthwave music to an "ultra" version.
Released on cassette and minidisc by Timeslave Recordings, two vinyl variants coming.
My musical journey took me to an even more distant, obscure dimension, in a future where man's survival is put to the test by an empire made up of machines that has taken total control of the planet.
A small faction of rebels is trying to resist, to isolate themselves from the millions of eyes that are looking for them to eradicate them under a darkened purple sky.
