about

Divus is a duo from Rome, comprised of electronic musician and techno producer Luciano Lamanna and saxophone player Luca T. Mai, of world-renowned band ZU.
Lamanna has a 20-year long career as a DJ, electronic musician and event organizer in the electronic and techno scene. He has many musical projects that goes under his name or with other collaborators, like Lunar Lodge who also made a split album with Mai Mai Mai. He recently he focused his work on the duo with Davide Ricci called Balance, devoted to improvisations on modular synthesisers.
Luca T. Mai is the man who blows the infernal saxophone with ZU, one the most powerful band on the planet which toured extensively in the last 15 years bringing their surgical heaviness everywhere.

Following their eponymous debut in 2018 on Boring Machines, Lamanna and Mai expanded their dialogue on nocturnal and atmospheric sounds and brought the collaboration to a brand new level.
The sober use of synthesisers and long sustained notes from the saxophone, have been expanded to more dynamic moments, with a more angular approach.
It is like the duo, after an initial conversation where they defined the broader sense of their discourse, has finally reached the core of their discussion, with more specific thoughts/sounds.
The music is so smokey and dark, it could suit perfectly a b/w crime movie shot in one metropolitan suburb.

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Luciano Lamanna at Subsound Studio, Rome in 2019
