My interview for Drive Radio. Not only pizza.

DriveRadio
Question N°1:
Can you please introduce yourself to those that may be new to your work?

I started to join the synthwave music in 2012 with my first EP Voyage. After this album my music had lots of evolutions, jumping from nostalgic ballads to some groovy Italo Disco tunes.

Question N°2: What are your musical influences? What kind of music do you listen when not producing?

I’m from Italy, so my main influence is the Italo Disco. This kind of music was always included in some funny italian comedies (Cinepanettoni) which I always loved and still love to watch. When I don’t produce my music I sometimes listen to some chillout not to focus on pizza.

Question N°3: What is your earworm at the moment? What have you listening to on repeat recently?

In this moment I’m listening to the Vacanze di Natale ’83 soundtrack, in loop. I’m already in the Christmas mood!


Question N°4: What inspires you while working on new Music? What inspired you for the work on your THE SUMMONER track?

60% of my music is focused on pizza. 20% on girls, 20% on Milfs. That’s all.
When I worked on my THE SUMMONER track I wanted something powerful for my scene. I searched for some 80s workout music style because it had to be fast and hot like a pizza in the wood oven.


Question N°5: What programs and instruments do you use for your Music? What is your favourite VST you use? And which Drum Machine do you prefer?

I work on Steinberg Nuendo as DAW with some plugins such as Arturia V Collection, Minimonsta, Zebra 2 and OP-X PRO II. The last two ones are definitely my favourite!

Question N°6: What are your favourite Movie flicks and why?

My favourite ones are almost all the movies from Robin Williams. I loved him, he was always such a strong inspiration for me.
Another one is Rain Man, with Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. I love everything in that movie, the story, the music (by Hans Zimmer), the interpretation from Dustin Hoffman was amazing.

Question N°7: What is the next step for you after the release of THE SUMMONER OST? A new Album? A new ep? Or other projects youre involved in?

I’m working on a new album feat. Pj D’Atri. He’s a crazy guitarist based in Austria. I also have a side project with an italian singer and we are focusing on some radio italo-pop tunes. Hope you’ll have the chance to listen to everything as soon as possible!

The Rise of the Synths / A documentary about the Synthwave music style

If you don’t know about them yet, these guys are going to make the first official documentary about the synthwave music. The team tried to collect the funds for the shooting with the first crowdfunding but unfortunately it wasn’t successful due to the high (but fair) goal.
They’ve come back with the second crowdfunding on the Indiegogo platform, with the support of the Lakeshore records, the label of the Drive, Stranger Things soundtracks (and many more).
Well, do you want to be a part of this historical moment and support the team and all the artists included in the project?
This is the place!

“The Volkswagen of Death” EP reviewed on Drive Radio!

The Italian based producer Vincenzo Salvia is back on the scene with an all-powerful new EP, called « The Volkswagen of Death ». On this new record, he has attempted to mix things up tracks with adding a little dark horror with his signature Italo Disco sounds, and the overall result is a blend of of intoxicating sounds!!! It plunges us on like an outrun race Vs. death; a winning return from an artist that has left us dangling far too long. Does Volkswagen’s motor will kill us? Can Vincenzo Salvia save us from these malefic engines? The only way to find out is to listen for yourself, but be warned: you’ll find it hard not to be fixed behind the wheel!
