Bio

The careers of Milan, Italy's bass player/dj/producer Matteo Curcio and singer/art director Marinella Mastrosimone converged in 2006 to form Musetta.

The duo's backgrounds are rather different: while Matteo has his roots deep in electronic music, with a love for Kraftwerk and 70's German cosmic music, but grew up studying jazz, Marinella's main influences are Italian 70's prog rock and Indian classical music.

They started touring as Musetta the same year, playing at various live events, among which the famous Heineken Jammin' Festival, Arezzo Wave, Rock Contest, MTV Day '08, MTV Sunset, always with a great response from the audience, and played live for many corporate events (Toyota, Samsung, Nokia, Heineken, Luxottica, Lines, Tampax).

Their music has been chosen by some great designers like Romeo Gigli, Krizia and Enrico Coveri for their Milan fashion shows and for TV ads.

Musetta's image and mood is inspired by early 20th century arts, film-noir and science fiction - a retro feel with a futuristic edge.

"Mice To Meet You!" is their debut album, which sees the collaboration of UK producer Rob Ellis (PJ Harvey, Placebo, Tricky, Melissa Etheridge).

One of the tracks on the album, 'Ophelia's Song', was licensed to Creative Commons and has become the 'most remixed acappella' on ccmixter.org and got featured - among others - by the French Rails SNCF, while the remixes of 'Peace and Melody', soon followed by 'Red Star', 'Nicotine' and 'Standing by my Side', released on over 150 records by Morrison Recordings (Canada) and Armada Records (Holland), climbed the Beatport charts and got the endorsement of Pete Tong, Tiesto, John Digweed, Sasha, Armin van Bureen, Markus Schulz, Paul Oakenfold, Laurent Garnier and David Guetta.

On August 2009 "Mice to meet you!" won first place for best album in the category of Electronica in the 2009 Just Plain Folks Awards - selected from a pool of 42,000 albums in 96 genres.

On January 2010 the track "Ophelia's Song", remixed by David Miles Huber, gets a nomination at Grammy Awards 2010 as "Best Surround Sound Album".

Musetta are now working on their forthcoming album while touring as a quartet (bass, vocals, drums, guitars, electronics) featuring a VJ set specially conceived to interact with the music.
