“Mace. is the solo project of italian producer Enrico Cesaro and it’s been active since 2013 with releases in labels such as Further Records, Lux Rec, Veleno Viola and angoisse. Having a degree in economics, Mace. serves as Enrico’s outlet for a dystopian interpretation of world economics and its inevitable effects. Further departing from both the cyberpunk waves of ‘Splendore Finanziario’ (Veleno Viola, 2015) and the industrial leaning technoeconomics of ‘Four Things Everyone Will Be Talking About Today’ (Lux Rec, 2016), Mace.’s new work, ‘Life, Intelligence, Joy, Breathing’ on angoisse (an ever-exploratory label and publishing house based in Barcelona) is marked by a shining blend of disconnected rhythms, undecipherable and synthetic cut up vocals, and a sentiment of mutation in the emotional perception of present and future world economy. The atmosphere has changed; the dirtyness and rawness of previous releases makes now way for a deeper exploration of the emotive and abstract mechanics that control the fintech scenario” [via]

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.
