For somebody who has never heard of you: What would be a good track to get an impression of what you are doing?

At the crossroads of Dark Progressive and Dark Psy

My latest favourite is “Self Petting” from the “A Push Forward” compilation by my good friend and colleague Fabio Leal. It’s deep, full of analog sounds and very psychedelic in my opinion. I used a synth called Tetra from DSI, very fat sounding little beast. I must admit, I’m a gear slut and simply love synthesizers. So yeah, this tune might give you an idea of what I do.

You used to be a Dark Psy producer. How come you decided to shift down a gear… or two?

Around 2006, while playing as Coma Sector, my very first Dark Psy project together with my friend Anx / Void Controller, I heard a super fresh track – the production was incredibly clean, minimalist, industrial, deep as fuck! It was “Tropicana” from Sensient’s “Pressure Optimal” album. What I loved was that it was on the side of “experimentation”, not on the side of “show me your boobs while I drop this offbeat bass of my latest Beatport hit”. That really inspired me and I came up with my first HypoGeo EP something like 3 years later. Fuck formulas – we need fresh ideas, not copycats!

And how do you make sure you’re not becoming a copycat of your own sound, like so many producers?

Well, technology offers you the possibility to always re-innovate your sound. At the moment I’m diving into the world of modular synthesis, for example. That opened billions of sonic doors. I’m building my little Eurorack system and I can say that it is showing me once again that there are no borders in the realm of sound, the only border is my wallet…

You played at many festivals last summer, from small to huge. Any special memory that pops up to your mind?

One of the most impressive stages I played was definitely Modem Festival, amazing concept with the DJ almost not visible from the dancefloor and a real crazy alien video mapping. It was great to play in front of a great variety of people, I’d really like to thank them for the amazing support over the years!

Comment on Facebook 4 track album

here a very nice review of the EP made by label manager Mentale : “Rivoluzione Informale” is a 4 track EP written by two long time friends Nicola & Filippo, better known as Hypogeo/Brødo and Økapi. A surprising blend of two radically different styles, where the playful atmospheres cut & sewed by Økapi create a coloured playground for contrasting the dark and industrial grooves forged by Brødo modular system. The surprising dialogue between their creativities is recorded and released at the Orbita Parvati research labs. The EP opens with “Astronauta muratore”, where after a long ambient dystopian moonwalk we are challenged to climb the hardest peak of the trip : melancholic melodies lead to broken brain-beats and acid synthesizers to end in a father-son dialogue, when the kid would become a carpenter rather than an astronaut. “Ruggine” is a breath of fresh air: Økapi orchestra steps back into reminiscences of 2015 work “Happily Reversed” engaging a tight dialogue with Brødo heavily distorted and uber modulated bassdrum for a spaced out hybrid, dubby “chanson”. A brief moment of diversion before “rivoluzione informale” is unleashed: Nicola & Filippo psychedelic breakfast teleports us to an empty concert in the desert, a far-west duel between a trumpet and alien broken communication systems. Six minutes of cinematic digressions, suspended atmospheres and unidentified objects. “Una via d’uscita” brings us back to a safe harbour with a slow trip-hop with eastern riffs, wah guitars and fading drones.
