New York, NY (Top40 Charts) "Through the calculation of probabilities, on the one hand they create random sounds and rhythms, and on the other hand they have full control of their ideas and the composition." - Son Of Marketing

"The duo hold themselves in a state of gnawing discomfort, with electronic feedback showering over those rumbling polyrhythms, trying to puncture the membrane of civility that keeps the percussion within the realms of musical obedience, goading those tempered drum hits toward the booms and bangs of violence" - ATTN Magazine

Afrofuturism producers Trrmà have announced the release of their latest single, 'Shishapangma' on 6th of March. The track was premiered via VENTS Magazine and is lifted from their upcoming album, The Earth's Relief via 577 Records which will be released on 1st of May. The duo have received support from Italian publications Son Of Marketing, Rockerilla and Blow Up. The two have toured Japan, sharing a stage with Tatsuya Yoshida (Ruins), Koichi Makigami (Tzadik record), and Doravideo. Trrmà has also collaborated with American visual artist and pianist Charlemagne Palestine whilst one-half of Trrmà, Giovanni Todisco has previously worked with Italian punk duo ?Alos. Having toured Europe, the duo also played at L'homme a deux oreilles and Time Zones Festival.

Based in the South of Italy, Trrmà is comprised of Giovanni Todisco on drums and percussions and Giuseppe Candiano on modular synthesizers. Giovanni Todisco, a teacher of drums and percussion in several music schools, received his own formal training when he graduated from Monopoli Conservatory in "Classical Percussions". Giuseppe Candiano studied jazz guitar and trumpet before he went on to teach himself the synthesizer with a focus on electronic music.

Trrmà find inspiration in the beginnings of afrofuturism with SUN RA taking centre stage while the more structured aspects of IANNIS XENAKIS providing support. The resulting sound is complex, with parallels being drawn to the likes of Clap! Clap! and Flying Lotus, while the jazzy aspects of Portico Quartet shine through.

Featuring tribal polyrhythm percussion with a focus on sci-fi and dystopic feelings, Trrmà take experimental jazz and elevate it, twisting and distorting the sound until the afrofuturism shines through. Carried by scattershot snare rim beats with influences of beat culture such as afrobeat and footworks, the resulting dense percussive is noteworthy. Having been known to work with the stochastic system of composition, Trrmà manages to strike a delicate balance between aspects of archaic and ancient primitive dance and strict mathematical processes.

Speaking of the overall album, Trrmà tells us ""The Earth's reliefs" is dedicated to unreachable peaks, at the same time it represents the desire to challenge the highest goals, a metaphor for the research behind our music with which we always try to surprise ourselves."
