“really is glorious…” – Mary Anne Hobbs, BBC6 Music

Berlin-based drummer and percussianist, Andrea Belfi is newly launched FLOAT label’s first signing.

Over the years Belfi has built a sound-world that artfully combines a modest drum set-up with an equally concise electronics component. Belfi became an instant highlight following a sold-out gig at London’s Barbican Centre, lighting the stage with an impressive and explosive drum solo that became one of the most memorable moments from the evening.

Building upon his reputation for energetic, charismatic performance, Belfi has worked both as a solo musician and within numerous collaborations, 2016 seeing him tour with Nonkeen, the German three-piece band headed by Nils Frahm. This year, he brings his raw, enigmatic solo performance to the Supersonic stage.
