Italo disco, Funk, Electronic
Bruno Belissimo is an Italo/Canadian producer and multi-instrumental solo artist. His sound is deeply influenced by the italo and space disco classics together with the original soundtracks of the ’70s and ’80s Italian horror/sci-fi movies. The result is an unique approach to disco music, a sort of “New Italo” enriched by balearic atmospheres and jazz vibes.
With the Italian record label Locale Internazionale Bruno has released three singles: “Ethiopia/Galaxy” (2014), “From Canada/To Paradise” (2015), “Infradisco” (2015). These successes led to his first full-length self-titled album that came out in 2016. The album has been critically acclaimed and helped labeling Bruno as a rising talent in the European disco scene. Bruno complements the unique sound of his album with a powerful live set combining audio and video while he showcases his instrumentalist talents.
Since the album release in 2016 he intensively toured throughout Italy and abroad: he went to in India – Bangalore, New Delhi, Pune, Mumbai; Chile – Santiago De Chile; New York and in Sweden – Gothenburg.
He works with many Italian artists, both in studio and live, and currently is the bass player of the Italian songwriter Colapesce. Previously he has released three critically acclaimed albums playing bass with the band Low Frequency Club and toured extensively in Europe.
