Banana Moon: “Tie Me Up”

A great tune from Massimiliano Pagliara and Luigi Di Venere’s debut collaborative EP as Banana Moon

Massimiliano Pagliara and Luigi Di Venere drop their debut collaborative EP as Banana Moon.

The ninth release on Berlin label Funnuvojere Records comes from Banana Moon, a new collaborative project from label founder Massimiliano Pagliara and CockTail d’Amore resident Luigi Di Venere. The pair’s debut release as Banana Moon is a four-tracker called “Delphinium Blue”, a killer EP filled with luxurious vocals, funky bassed and joyous rythms confirming the duo’s unconditional passion for the Italo groove.

The duo’s name Banana Moon is an acronym born on a summer night walk in the south of Italy, hinting as well to the legendary 1970s Florentine Rock Club. The title of this debut EP “Delphinium Blue” is a flower favoured by Derek Jarman, it evokes feelings of joy and warmth, urging us to open to new experiences. The record features the Chicago neoclassic “Full Service”, the title track “Delphinium Blue (Kabuki Mix)”, a theatre of sounds inspired by Detroit techno, a genre much esteemed by Banana Moon, and “Polyamory”, whoch sings to interspecies love, leading us for a swim in the blue depths grasping the tail of a playful whale.

Today we’re psyched to premiere the EPs opener “Tie Me Up”, a great Italo proto-house track. Clocking in at nearly six minutes, “Tie Me Up” sounds like a demand. An unorthodox arpeggio drives the slinky rhythm, crowded by luxurious vocals flared by cheeky claps. Blast it below exclusively on LAGASTA.

Banana Moon’s “Delphinium Blue” EP arrives on October 18th via Funnuvojere Records.
