“Night Safari,” the most recent album by Populous, out on the 30th September 2014, marks his comeback six years after the issue of “Drawn In Basic”, his last full-lenght published by Morr Music.
After dedicating some time to LIFE & LIMB, a side-project shared with the New York singer Michael McGuire, he is back from an exotic trip amidst world sounds and the exploration of electronic music, from ancient ethnic instruments to the low pitch of the 808.It
is an imaginary nighttime safari with his partners in adventure (Clap! Clap!, Cuushe, Digi G’Alessio, Iokoi, DJ Khalab, and Giorgio Tuma) using field recordings from the four corners of the world,
samples taken from hidden records, african polyrhythms and kraut synths. Here he is using a crossbred language, which moves easily across borders and boundary lines, naturally mixing continental glitch-hop and tropical splendor.Whether it is Mumbai or Tunis, Berlin or Rio, Lecce or Tokyo, Populous
sketches a new world map removing all political borders, only to leave his very personal sound aesthetics in charge.
