69th Sanremo’s winner Mahmood Releases New EP “Ghettolimpo” From Netflix’s series “Zero” Soundtrack
The new album “Ghettolimpo” takes inspiration from influences and references of life transformed into an artistic and sound dimension with multiple contaminations.
A universe populated by the gods of Olympus together with various characters, where the suggestions drawn from Greek myths are combined with the experiences of modern heroes who live their daily lives, trying to overcome obstacles in different situations. In Mahmood’s Ghettolimpo we do not find omnipotent figures belonging to an unreachable place, but the description of simple extraordinary people who try to give meaning to their lives.
No one is immortal and no one is a simple human, but we find entities with a common soul aimed at facing the unattainable on the one hand and the crudest and most everyday reality on the other.
“Ghettolimpo” creates a new imaginary for an artist who in a short time has conquered a place among the most important exponents of urban pop songwriting, with a unique trait that distinguishes him in the contemporary scene.
And so there are two precious collaborations with Elisa among the most popular Italian singers in “Rubini” and with Woodkid in “Karma“, a multifaceted international artist who also produced the song. Mahmood also involved some of the best producers such as MUUT, DRD, Francesco Fugazza, Francesco “Katoo” Catitti and authors such as Davide Petrella, Salvatore Sini.
