AD DIG 006 – Cape – Le Post EP
Fernando Cappelletti aka Cape – pronounce [cà-pé] – is originary of Rosario, the beautiful capital of the province of Santa Fe, which stands right on the banks of the Rio de la Plata, north of Buenos Aires. Born in 1985, Cape discovered house music when he was 11, with tunes like Van Helden’s Funk Phenomena or Inner City’s hits, he immediately identified with the genre while feeling his feet moving and twisting and the groove slowly entering his core.
In his formative years, he also develloped a strong appreciation of rock while learning to play the guitar and listening to Depeche Mode, Sonic Youth, Pink Floyd and the Sex Pistols, offering him a great knowledge of contemporary music. It wasn’t until the year 2000 that Cape discovered Ricardo Villalobos’ creations and a whole new dimension of electronic music, which left him speechless. He then started following Franco Cinelli in clubs like El Faro or El Sotano, legendary clubs of their home town. Some experiences which left a permanent mark on him.
Cape naturally started producing and received the great help of his city neighbours and friends Nico Purman, Franco Cinelli, Lucas Mari, Jorge Savoretti and Andres Zacco, letting this clear Rosario sound to impregnate his productions. Also following the influences of Laurent Garnier, Robert Hood, Basic Channel, Speedy J or Terrence FM on one side and Cabanne, Luciano, Perlon, Mathew Jonson or Baby Ford on the other, Cape creates an interesting and rich blend of techno and house with dub patterns and Detroit sonorities.
It is a real honour for us to announce today the release of the first productions of who has become one of our favourite emerging artists.
