8 Tracks: Of Saudade Cyberpunk Feelings With Rico Casazza

Ten years of production, and a love of nostalgia and melancholy.

London based Rico Casazza has been producing diverse electronic music for over 10 years. With releases on labels such as Soma, Archipel and Plastic City, his sound has covered ambient, electro, techno and IDM, all sharing a moody and melancholic quality. He has also released music under a trip-hop alias Raw Axe and has performed live and DJ'd at Fabric, AKA, Village Underground and further afield. His selection is based around the Portuguese word "saudade", a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing.

"I've got to say that I love sad and melancholic melodies and atmospheres, but I’m not a sad person. I love the cold and distant places that only you can reach with your imagination. For me these types of music don't represent sadness, but instead represent joy and liberation from everyday worries and anxieties."


Rico Casazza - Yaman is released by Archipel Canada on 30th November 2016 and can be found HERE.

Blade Runner Blues - Vangelis - 1982 - [Hd]

The first thing that comes to my mind when I say cyberpunk is Blade Runner. This is not only the best piece of music ever written, but also represents the imaginary world of a dystopian city surrounded by dark clouds, rain, fog and an uncertain future. This is probably one of the deepest tunes I've ever heard in my life.
