New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Afrobeat experimentalism producers Trrmà will release their latest single, 'Dhaulagiri' on 9 April. The track is lifted from their upcoming album, The Earth's Relief via 577 Records which will be released on 1st of May. Their previous single, 'Shishanpangma' from the album was premiered via VENTS Magazine. The duo have received support from Italian publications Son Of Marketing, Music Week, 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, specifically, the town of Bari (Puglia) and Messina, Sicily, 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.

Taking tribal percussionism to the next level, Trrmà combine two simple elements of drums and electronic embellishments. However, that is where the simplicity stops as 'Dhaulagiri' writhes in its own experimentalism. Polyrhythmic flourishes throughout the single break up the expected beat, ensuring that the listener is encouraged to pay attention to the details found within the nuances of the sound rather than allowing for passive listening.

Trrmà take the time to describe the track to their fans, "'Dhaulagiri' combines afro-jazz percussion elements with abstract electronics that remind spacey 90' scratch DJ works. An unconventional form of broken beat composition."
