In an era when dance music gets weird as hell, Whodamanny, AKA Raffaele Arcella, still cuts an odd figure. The Neapolitan is a key player in the Early Sounds Recordings collective and one of the founders of the Periodica Records. He’s also half of The Normalmen and one third of The Mystic Jungle Tribe. He’s spent a great deal of time experimenting with phase distortion synthesizers made by Casio and on several kinds of toy keyboards creating a really weird fusion between cosmic sounds, proto-house, jazz-funk and electronica. The results can be heard best on 2016’s Cosmic Morphology album on Periodica and on his Primaria Industria opus our own Unthank label.
