Primo Zanasi – Con Occhio Benigno
Primo Zanasi is an obscure beatmaker, a multi-instrumentalist and a vintage and analogic gear collector based nearby Bologna. During last years he has produced large amounts of ultra-limited edition cassettes – all identified by a very specific and original sound – that circulated among a small group of followers, becoming kind of a real Underground cult.
“Con Occhio Benigno” is probably the first Christological Beat-Tape in Italian Hip Hop history. Most of the samples were taken from a well-known Italian radio specialized in religious broadcasts. It’s about a sound collage that becomes a semi-serious reflection on our country’s Catholic tradition.
The material was recorded during a very intense production session in which Primo Zanasi composed several beats for Prince Metropolis Known and Kool Keith, a legendary American rapper and Ultramagnetic MC’s former member.
All tracks are short and range from hammering raw Hp Hop beats to more abstract and expanded moments. Everything sounds lo-fi – it’s thanks to the gears the beatmaker works with that run at 12-Bit.
The cover’s artwork is a handmade collage by Primo Zanasi himself, created by cutting and assembling various holy cards and sacred images.
