New single „Diastema“ by Tomat is out today. For fans of Jon Hopkins, Four Tet, Alessandro Cortini, Lorenzo Senni. His new EP „Diistemi“ is scheduled for release on October 1st.
Diistemi is a collection of images and sounds Davide Tomat was feeling, experimenting and creating in lockdown days. A crooked ’stop and go‘ of personal ideas and simple mental processes that helped Tomat pass by the first pandemic, locked at home, yearning for a world outside, trying to face a restart, a new beginning, an escape from the personal shelter he was building, while we were all divided.
„As a collection of photographs of that period, every track is a simple image, an elementary mental phenomena, an unshiny personal elaboration of feelings I had in my mind at that time .
Forced at home for the first time, for something nobody knew and that nobody could face or recognize, I felt the urgency to do music, but it was tough.Breathing but not living what was happening outside my room, producing was unsatisfactory. I was deleting my projects at night and then trying to recover them the day after with cheesy recovery softwares.“ – Tomat
