2Blue is formed at the end of the 90s as an open collective, around dj Luca "Rocca" Roccatagliati and architect Enrico Marani. DJ Rocca is a founder member of Maffia, the club which is a focus of the Italian electronic scene (venue for artists as Howie B, Bill Laswell, Fat Boy Slim, Roni Size) since more than ten years. He has parallel projects: with British dj Zed Bias works as "Daluq", together with Pressure Drop founded the "Cane Matto" combo, and with Fabrizio Tavernelli "Aiello". He is also the pillar of Maffia Soundsystem, with whom he toured most of Europe. Enrico Marani's experiences as performer and musician started at the end of the 80s, in the industrial-noise group T.A.C. During the 90s he worked with Manitù Rossi in "Le Forbici di Manitù", that released 7 albums on various independent labels, in Italy and abroad: one of these is dedicated to Luther Blisset, and attracted the attention of international press (Wire). At the end of the 90s he founded Duozero with Fabrizio Tavernelli (AFA, Groove Safari). 2Blue released two albums for the label Kom Fut Manifesto. The first, Fattore Sonoro, is meant as accompaniment for Andrea Chiesi's paintings, and comprises electronically generated instrumental suites. With this soundscape, Andrea Chiesi's work has been exibited in important national galleries, like Galleria Civica (Modena), Palazzo delle Papesse (Siena), Inga Pin Gallery (Milano). The second album, Light Transmission, is the condensation of 2Blue's artistic efforts, looking also at the human voice for the constitution of a consistent textual plot, accompanied by an accomplished rhythmic and sonic research. Collaborators to Light Transmission are: Ursula Rucker, poet and singer from Philadelphia, with two albums on k7 (Supasista and Silver or Lead), Dave Watts, voice in Fun Da Mental and Tim Motzer, guitarist active on the Philadelphia scene (Les Nubians, King Britt, Patti LaBelle, Ursula Rucker). Light Transmission gets very good reviews on the Italian press (Alias, Rockstar, Mucchio Selvaggio, Rockerilla). 2Blue are working on their third album, weaving new sonic textures.
