Born in 1990, today we bring you to discover a unique artist, no it’s not just to say, it really is. It will take you only a short time to be charmed by the very personal sound of Dario Jacque, driven by a passion for jazz, soul and electronics and a Mediterranean approach to melody.
Dario Jacque is the alter ego of bassist, composer and producer Dario Giacovelli and on May 14th his debut album “Wait, What?!” was released by Totally Imported. The ten tracks tell unique stories and are each a spokesperson for a specific message. They start from the emotional representation of the anxiety towards tomorrow with “Burrone” and “Melancholy Future”, to the desire to break down the logic and certainties of today to meet the unknown, as in “Quantum Gravity” and “Eternal Disorder”, up to the provocative scream of “Vamos Burrito” that wants to be the spokesman of a message related to social and cultural disparities.
“Wait, What?!” is a synthesis of the artistic evolution and personal growth path of bassist Dario Giacovelli.
What makes Dario Jacque’s project even more special are the feats chosen, capable of adding a personal touch to the album, without having to compromise and without distorting what the young artist from Puglia has created.
From Arya to Emanuele Triglia via Marco Apicella and Simone Cesarini, all the guests have managed to enrich an album that is already beautiful and complex.
“Wait, What?’ represents a pure and instinctive part of me, which has been put aside for a long time. It’s the part most linked to the music of memories, to the music of discovery, to adolescence, to that feeling that pushed me to become a musician so many years ago.
We are sure you have been waiting for it. Like any self-respecting Vinilica you can not miss the playlist compiled by Dario Jacque exclusively for Collater.al Mag with all his influences and his favorite pieces or almost.
“Hi Collater.al! How hard is it to make a list of tracks that you are attached to! Maybe I’m a little crazy, maybe I love to change, but for me every moment of the day has its own soundtrack. I have chosen ‘only’ 30 songs that still give me emotions; songs that tell stories in which I have immersed myself, in which I have found refuge in times of need, songs that are memories of people, places, that tell my journey, that are a source of inspiration for my music, food that feeds my putting myself in service for the music, every day.”
