DUST Looney Moon Records, Italy
Florence based musician, Andrea Lunghi a.k.a DUST is rising strong from the underground vaults of Looney Moon Records.
His space lab located in the heart of Florence, Dust has been shaping sounds since 2004 and has enjoyed being released on a large number of compilations this year alone.
Blessed with a musical range stretching from night-time haunts and forest soundz to the groove of daylight full-on, every track touched by him has that unmistakable Dusty sound. Most of us have caught a glimpse of this dusty surprise on compilations while the full-length album “I don’t like psychedelics” is eagerly awaited for release on Looney moon Rec this year.
Often been suspected of either alien DNA or robotic nerves as he blazes through his Live performances and heads back to the studio where the music unfolds under his numerous guises; Mindshuffle (with the italian Ilai from 24/7), Foam (with Assioma from Looney Moon rec), Dust in Face ( with Giacomo Phase), Assault Junkies (with Thomas Peace-ka), ComaDust (with Nicola Hypogeo/Comasector) and Latin Loser ( with Giacomelli).
Guaranteed to raise the dust from the floor with his monstrous Live sets ““ there is no escaping the Dusty sound.
Decos by CARIN DICKSON, South Africa
Life is an adventure when you catch rainbows and chase the sun. Creation is the fuel that navigates this Self-existing Yellow Star through the cosmos. Travelling the extents of existence to capture experience and deliver unto the world an expression of imagery. Exploring the fertility of the minds’ unique bounty manifesting a feast for the eye. A journey into the imagination on a voyage of endless possibilities. Born in the Mother land, a ’79 vintage, after shoulder-pads and before reality TV, at summers end under the sign of the determined ram, this painted warrior dances in the rain and worships the moon. Gathering inspiration from the world, powered by self-motivation and the unrelenting urge to paint everything, a tye-dyed butterfly was shaped.
Continually evolving and experimenting with dimension, tweaking perspective with colour vibrancy and contrasting the surreal with balanced definition, compelling an otherworldly escapade in a harmonious environment.
A billboard sized canvas armed with a 2cm paintbrush can be transformed in a matter of days and with an airbrush can cover an engulfing stretch in ultraviolet brilliance before the sun sets. With enough paint and a bit of time ““ the world.
When eyes become leaden and arms beg for respite its back to dream of beautiful surroundings, dancing colours and music moving blissful bodies. The desire to infiltrate beauty into peoples’ lives started with commissioned murals while finishing with 4 distinctions at the National School of Arts in Johannesburg ’96. The next few years were spent painting restaurants, nightclubs and private homes, building a recognisable name throughout the country. By ’99 my art could be found in some of the top venues in South Africa.
At the age of 22 a series of paintings were completed for Standard Bank and a massive mural covering a government building in Jhb city centre for a BMW ad featured on TV. That year also saw the beginning of backdrops, for event companies, festivals and parties including psychedelic scenes featured and sold at the Zambian Solipse Festival. Hungry for new horizons the travel bug bit and Thailand found me decorating restaurants. One year and a million miles later in the Mojave Desert no wall was safe. In California, the famous engineer of SpaceCraftOne Burt Rutans’ home had little defence, as well as his infamous pilot and fellow South African, Mike Mevill, whose home too fell prey to the ubiquitous paint. Mexico swirled with my colour at the Sonpax festival on a beach near Cancun. Three months in Spain during the summer of 2003 produced what is reputed to be the biggest mural on the Costa del Sol, a 250m square piece of my soul at the Aztec Country Club Resort which hailed a nail-biting live interview on an English tv channel and an article in Hi Society Magazine. Soon the call of Africa summoned me home. Nesting in the mountains of Cape Town cultivated works of fine art in oils, exhibited at the renowned Kirstenbosh Gardens and various other galleries. By the end of ’05 my ultraviolet fingerprint marked all the biggest psytrance festivals in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
The following year at the Voov festival in Germany my 8m high Dragon backdrops were mounted above an audience of 8000 people. The German magazine, Mushroom Mag, featured my art on its glossy front post with a humble article inside. The year of the fruitful Pig ’07 returned me to soft sands of Thailand to orchestrate décor for the Black Moon parties and Ban Sabaii in Ban Tai on the famous island of Koh Phangan, updated on a continuous basis for travellers to revel in. The following year I was drinking Nepalese tea in the foothills of Everest on a riverside beach at the Shanti Jatra Full Moon Festival where my 3d ultraviolet Lotus stretched 6m high and 20m across joining stars and sand. A year later the winds blew me west, switching to Earl Grey I decorated Fuze, a small indoor event in London Town and showcased backdrops at the Ozora Festival in Hungary. In Early ’10 the Namaste Experience held in Lebanon exhibited my stretch artworks. Still coming up ths year I am collaborating with Extradimensional Space Agency on décor for Ozora and am exhibiting in the Boom gallery at the Boom festival in Portugal as well as displaying my psychedelic stretch at Afterboom-Utopia.
Over the past few years my art has gained international notability and it gives me great joy to share this obsession with vivid beauty in the manner it was created, to bring abundant happiness to the viewer. A nemesis to blank space my brush only rests when colour fills the world. Floating on a rainbow bubble, stirring in luminosity, filling the melting pot of life.
