GET TO KNOW: MIND AGAINST
Mind Against. We’re brothers Alessandro Fognini and Federico Fognini, born in Milan (Italy), respectively in ’88 and ’89, where we started playing and producing electronic music four years ago. Since we grew up together our musical backgrounds are very similar and have been influenced each other. It varies from 70’s/80’s rock to 90’s/00’s electronic and IDM.
We have always been into music to be honest, we was already playing in several college rock bands ten years ago but Mind Against is definitely our first serious musical project.
We moved to Berlin last January and we’re currently living and sharing the studio with the others guys from Life and Death.
Moving to Berlin gave us the opportunity to meet and work with people that continuously inspire us, but we can say that EVERYTHING that surrounds us influences our music every day – it’s difficult to find something more specific.
Music is a hobby which occupies most of our time but we also like to travel, listen to records and as any good Italians, we definitely love good food :)
We actually just finished recording our first EP, “Atlant”, that will be released on Life and Death at the end of the month. We’re currently working on some remixes and a second EP that will probably see the light next winter.
We have some gigs ahead around Europe for the months to come. We’re really looking forward to play at B my Lake Festival in Budapest on 19th August and definitely to come back to Istanbul and Malta in September where we really had amazing times previously.
Check Mind Against’s EP, “Atlant”! Amazing work!
Atlant is definitely one of LifeMusicFun’s recent, favorite songs and has been played all over the US at many festivals and sets! Check it out!
Life and Death’s most recent Podcast, Number 5, has gotten raving reviews. Definitely worth a listen or thousands of listens. :)
