2018 Countdown | Tommaso Cappellato

Tommaso embodies the art form: gentle, flowing, dignified yet absolutely curious. A traveler with a message who is just as comfortable in his native Padova, Italy, as he is in a New York studio. A student of the drum and the rhythm, and a man who embraces technology as it applies to music. He came to Ropeadope via Mark de Clive-Lowe’s imprint Mashibeats, delivering his acclaimed debut album Aforemention, in 2016 and this year he reworked the project with remixes that developed through random encounters on his tour of the world. Nia Andrews, Natalie May, and more bring the album out of the studio and into the world in a soulful way. Drop in right here for both albums.
