Umberto & Antoni Maiovvi // European Tour // May-June

Umberto & Antoni Maiovvi will be performing together live for first time in Europe and this is the first full european tour booked by Sidewalk. Go check them out!!

Antoni Maiovvi and UMBERTO combine the creative talents of two of the underground's most resilient modern-day composers. United by Death Waltz at the first annual Beyond Fest in LA, the pair worked tirelessly on a fictitious soundtrack taking influence from a shared adoration of early industrial and experimental music. Shedding the retro-futurism of their solo work to fully embrace the darkness at the heart of it all. They will be performing together for first time in Europe with their new collaboration live set. Death Waltz Recording Company will release their new record 'Law Unit' in April.

Death Waltz are proud to bring you an all-new aural experience via the latest installment of the Death Waltz Originals series. Law Unit is a brand new creation by maestros Umberto and Antoni Maiovvi, an original concept that in the composers' own words “moves past the retro-futurist works of their individual solo releases to explore a world of early industrial and experimental music”. The resulting album is made up of ten dangerously cool and evocative cuts, the kind of tracks that put you in the mood for LA circa 2019, or the Detroit of 1987.

Law Unit feels like exactly that; to paraphrase a certain TV show, “a lone crusader in a dangerous world”. What makes this record doubly worth your time are the snatches of beauty hidden within, of wonder. Reflective synth lines, guitar, sometimes ambient, other times in the foreground. Law Unit is a masterpiece of hard beats and harder synths that you'll want on your stereo when you're making that next trip into the dark unknown.
