Mushrooms Project

Mushrooms Project are Giorgio Giri and Marco Lentano who met back in 2003. They were joined through a love of DJing and a passion for all forms of music. Their inspiration has come from the Idjut Boys and the Mateo & Matos duet.

Pushing the boundaries of DJing they introduced themselves to using 4 turntables, which enables them to fuse together deep house, disco and funk. After making their debut in their home country of Italy they have gone onto play at various parties around Formentera and Ibiza. In the middle of the Mediterranean their Balearic approach to music fitted in perfectly with their surroundings! In 2008 the pair had their first production signed by London's Bear Funk Records. As an established label with releases form the likes of Lindstrom, Chicken Lips, Idjut Boys, Fabrizio Mammarella it was a promising start for Giorgio & Marco.

Shortly after a new demo arrived at Electric Minds who were quick to snap up their latest EP for the label. "Space Mushrooms", "Wilkommen" and "Special Guest In The Camping" are newly created tracks with live instruments throughout. The baleraric and techy sounds provide an original and new sound for the ever growing house / nu disco scene. As an added bonus to this new Ep is a remix from Toby Tobias. As a friend to the label and with his consistency of releasing his trademark sound on labels such as Rekids and Tiny Sticks it's great to hear Toby's work on this excellent EP.

With their great club Mushroom Projects at the Veronika Club in Italy attracting some stunning guests right into 2010 including a Vs night with Disco Safari,Mudd(Clarmont 56),Steve Kotey(Bear Funk/Chicken Lips)and loads more,its definitely some where to be checked out. Keep up the good work fellas....
