Expressing a musical venture that draws from the combined roots of IDM, house and techno, Mind Against are the Italian native but Berlin based project of Alessandro and Federico Fognini. The project is born in 2011 and in 2012 they recorded and released their first single "Cagliostro" on breakthrough label Life and Death. Through the same imprint, Mind Against released in 2013 their debut EP "Atlant" to critical acclaim. In 2012 and 2013 they have also composed several remixes for, amongst others, WhoMadeWho, Art Department, Róisín Murphy, Green Velvet on labels such as Kompakt, Cocoon Recordings, Vakant and aforementioned Life and Death. The duo embody a sound that they say is “difficult to describe”, instead referring any attempts to define their sonic identity to the psychedelic hooks of 1980s soundtracks and dance floor antics of European’s imperative parties. Their second EP "Avalon" has been released on 24 Feb via Life and Death.
