“Nato in seguito a una denuncia, il termine Diodrone suonò subito come qualcosa di incompreso, allo stesso tempo blasfemo e potente come un punto di rottura. Sotto questa parola suoni e arti diverse trovano un riparo accogliente e vi si riuniscono come una congrega, o come una famiglia di emarginati. Una terra di nessuno in cui progetti sperimentali coesistono e ballano insieme sotto stelle scure.” / [Raw English translation: “Born as a consequence of a condemnation, the ‘Diodrone’ term [i.e. Drone-God, meant as an Italian fake blasphemy] immediately sounded as misunderstood, and at the same time heretical and powerful as a breaking point. Under this word several arts and sounds find a comfortable shelter. Here they gather as a crew, a family of outcast. A no-man’s land where experimental project cohexist and dance together with dark stars.”]
Bad Girl is Leonardo Granchi’s solo project, separated from his activity with the Downward Design Research group. The musician from Florence, Italy released two records on the Diodrone label: a self-titled EP and a live recording called π – Il Live Del Delirio (recorded at Rullante Club, Florence, Italy, on Sunday 08 December 2013), respectively out in 2013 and in 2014. A project whose origins that cannot be precisely located in time, Bad Girl estabilished as a path for experimenting sounds from all sort of sources, occasionally assembled in stand-alone tracks. The full-length album Cosmi was released yesterday the 6th of June 2016 on Diodrone (to stream the whole record: here).

PAYNOMINDTOUS is a non-profit organization registered in December 2018, operating since late 2015 as a webzine and media website. In early 2017, we started our own event series in Turin, IT focused on arts, experimental, and dancefloor-oriented music. We reject every clumsy invocation to “the Future” meant as the signifier for capitalistic “progress” and “innovation”, fully embracing the Present instead; we renounce any reckless and ultimately arbitrary division between “high” and “low”, respectable and not respectable, “mind” and “body”; we support and invite musicians, artists, and performers having diverse backgrounds and expressing themselves via variegated artistic practices.
