HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM IDM MUSIC
One of the biggest living Italian tenors, Andrea Bocelli, is having a big solo concert this Saturday, November 29, in the Zagreb Arena. Andrea has already visited Zagreb twice: in 1999, when he presented himself to our audience with a legendary concert in the Vatroslav Lisinski hall, and in 2005 in the Arena of Pula, where he was accompanied by the HRT symphonic orchestra.
A brief reminder, the Italians started taking Andrea for serious when he won the San Remo festival in 1994, but it is the song 'Con te partirò' in a duet with Sarah Brightman that brought him the international fame. After 1997 and the compilation album “Romanza” sold in 20 million copies, nothing was the same. He received numerous international awards as well as the Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for the song “The Prayer” – a duet with Celine Dion used in a soundtrack of the animated movie “Quest for Camelot”.
The shows in the biggest concert halls around the world, millions of records sold, armies of fans and the tenor voice coming out of this world –these are all the synonims of what you can expect of the great Andrea Bocelli this Saturday in the Zagreb Arena.

FLYING LOTUS SAMPLED ENNIO MORRICONE
The famous experimental producer, musician and rapper Flying Lotus released a new killer album entitled “You’re Dead!” on Warp Records. His 5th studio album debuted at number 19 on the Billboard 200 chart and instantly received praises from the hip-hop community and critics.
One of the songs on the album, "Turtles", uses a sample from the known Bixio theme “"L’Uccello Dalle Piume Di Cristallo" (a/k/a "Theme From The Bird With The Crystal Plumage") by Maestro Ennio Morricone, showing once again how Bixio catalogue is still an inexhaustible source of inspiration for hip-hop producers.
Listen the album below and don't forget to enjoy!
