Ambient-electronic producer Mattia Cupelli will be releasing his latest single ‘CHANT’ on the 11th of June. Cupelli will continue to treat fans with the release of his upcoming RUINS LP on the 9th of July via MC Records. Along with ‘CHANT’, listeners will find the album’s first single, ‘MONOLITH’ which was accompanied by an eerie video as well as the second provocative single ‘EGERIA’. Cupelli has received support from the tastemaker publications including CLASH Magazine, Son Of Marketing, Mxdwn and XS Noize, to name a few. In total, the producer has earned over 76 million plays on Youtube and Spotify alone with features on the Sir Chillicious Youtube channel and La Belle Musique’s Spotify Playlist to boot.
Hailing from Rome, Italy, the producer seeks inspiration in the classics, calling upon the likes of Nils Frahm, Nicolas Jaar, Ryuichi Sakamoto. As he creates his own unique style, Mattia Cupelli uses neo-classical influences and modern concepts, blurring the line between electronic and organic. Calling to mind the likes of Tim Hecker, Ben Frost and Forest Swords, the producer manages to create fantasy worlds within his music.
A gentle break from Mattia Cupelli’s previous two dark singles ‘CHANT’ sees the producer return to the routes of delicate ambience. The third single to be released from the producer’s upcoming album, ‘CHANT’ adds an additional layer of complexity to the overall sonic creation we expect to receive from Cupelli. Striking a balance somewhere between mournful and nourishing, the producer continues to lure the mind to unexpected places.
Mattia Cupelli tells us about the inspiration behind the unique single: “I composed ‘CHANT’ as a reference to a sort of religious mantra, spiritual in its repetitions.”
