180 grams of creativity in a record
In 2016 the new creative trend is to conquer popular places and permeate daily life with creativity. The new trend involving Italy, and ready to reach Europe, is to set up real music sessions in local markets. The vinyl invasion and DJ sets with analogue equipment affects unusual urban spaces. The project is called "180 grams", that is the weight of a vinyl, and has animated the local markets of Salerno, Avellino and the fish market in Bagnoli, from September to now, once a month. The console surrounded by fruits and vegetables has captivated the audience. Buyers and sellers quickly adapted to the music rhythm and grocery shopping has become a sort of choreography. Here is how an unusual sociological experiment starts.
DJ sets with Nu-disco artists
Each event has its detailed schedule: DJ sets plays from opening to closing hours of the markets, with an average of four DJ sets throughout the day. The console take turns artists of Nu-disco, a genre that mixes jazz, soul and funk. The project has been developed by DJ Enzo Iannece aka N-Zino and the project is having a huge success on the web. There is demand everywhere new sessions, from North to South. It was time that the culture of vinyl come out of the clubs.
