We are proud to announce another new signing to the Reprise Publishing roster – Tom Dicicco
Since 2009, Manchester based Tom Dicicco has slowly been emerging as a fine dub and techno craftsmen. Early on it was labels like Germany’s Baud who saw something they liked in his heavyweight productions, whilst in recent times Finale Sessions have served up a Dicicco, Fred P and Luke Hess split 12” before Traut Musik did the same with Jonas Kopp and Dario Zenker completing the three tracks. Arguably the man’s crowning glories thus far have been a split EP with Kowton on London’s fast rising Project Squared, and a more recent solo release on Stockholm LTD.
Influenced heavily by dub, reggae and associated legends like King Tubby, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and Prince Jammy, Dicicco’s goals are simple: “I just want to keep creating music that people can connect to on different levels. Same when I DJ – my sets consist largely of deep dub techno but range to include harder edged stuff, with house a bit of dub reggae always included along the way.”After quickly forming a strong working relationship with Manchester’s AnD, together the pair have not only produced and remixed, but so too did they start their own vinyl only imprint, Inner Surface Music, in 2011. As well as releases from Dicicco and AnD, there will be similarly erudite electronic sounds in the near future with releases 003, 004 and 005 already signed and sealed.
