New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Experimental, Afrofuturist-inspired producers Trrmà shared the new video for their single, 'Makalu'. The hypnotizing video was premiered via Music Week. The track is lifted from their upcoming album, The Earth's Relief, to be released on the 1st of May via 577 Records. The duo has received support from publications VENTS Magazine, 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, and have lit up stages across Europe playing at L'homme a deux oreilles and Time Zones Festival. 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.

Based in the South of Italy, Trrmà is comprised of Giovanni Todisco on drums and percussion 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 finds inspiration in the beginnings of Afrofuturism, SUN RA taking centre stage with the more structured aspects of composer IANNIS XENAKIS providing support. Having been known to work with the stochastic system of composition, Trrmà manages to strike a delicate balance between aspects of ancient dance and strict mathematical processes. 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.

The ferocious energy of Trrmà's 'Makalu' takes on a visible form in this strikingly psychedelic visual feature. Equally absorbing as it is shocking, Trrmà worked in collaboration with exciting visual artists Tai Ogawa, Dunja Jankovic, Bernharda Xilko and Misa Sugata to produce this hypnotizing audio-visual spectacle. Trrmà met the artists behind the video at festivals of art, comics, and experimental visuals where they were invited to play in the last years, namely Festival in Bari, Novo Doba Festival in Belgrade and The Fuckups Festival in Verona. Impressed by their works, it was only natural for the duo to initiate a collaboration.

Speaking on 'Makalu', Trrmà explains, "The music and video is our way to represent a new vision of funk in 2020, a sort of new manifesto of futuristic aesthetics that put together afrobeat with space electronics."
