Tapefeed is an electronic music project born from the collaboration between the two italian djs and producers Alessandro Boni and Rick Vayo.
After a long period of b2b sessions, the two artists started to enter/begin together in a process of musical evolution and growth that lead both acts to join under the name of Tapefeed.
Their music is characterised by evolving and hypnotic ambient sounds merged together with techno-tribal percussions, heavy basslines and emotional melodies.
One of the main things that contributed to creation and evolution of the sound is the very different music background of the duo. Alessandro’s music knowledge comes from his long experience as music/art director, event organiser and dedicated music listener while Rick has a strong music experience as drummer in rock and funk bands enriched by recent production and piano studies.
They are resident Djs and Organisers of Tales, a new party and creative platform in which different artistic expressions merge together to create a unique audiovisual experience.
