Science dropped by Martini & Jopparelli. Nov-11-2007


This time our guest is really special and we are particularly proud to have him on our blog. This man is a musician (a superlative drummer), music journalist, DJ, collector of rare groove vinyls, producer and tutor for the Red Bull Music Academy. Is that enough? He is also the managing editor for Superfly Magazine, probably the best music magazine here in Italy (featuring an excellent column about breaks :-) ). His name is David Nerattini aka Little Tony Negri and if you still don’t get it, I give you some links to make up your mind…
