Christina Siravo "Magenta" Soulful, attention to detail, authentic sound of the 80s. Great voices and dynamics-album tells a story and takes you back in nostalgia. Uplifting album , I will recommend to my friends who are just discovering new 80s music ! Favorite track: Bring Me To You (feat. Mayah Camara).

Alpha Chrome Yayo From the opening school-clock-tick-tock and the peal of an end of class bell, this album throbs with pure after-school sunny-day energy. And it is infectious!

An extraordinary, effervescent musician and songwriter, MicroMatscenes injects so much of his personality into Back 2 School, making it absolutely irresistible.

It funks, it grooves, it swaggers and, frankly, it'll make you feel brilliant. The best work to date, by an actual superstar. Favorite track: Position Chrome.

Mayah Camara I am obsessed with this album. It's my favourite so far from Micromatscenes. And that has nothing to do with my being on it, it's because it has everything! There's soul, pop, new jack swing, vapourwave and more! Complete neon goodness! One of the best albums to drop this year if you ask me! Favorite track: Position Chrome.

Manhatten (Fan) Song writing and production has gone to a new level on this album - wonderfully conceived ideas, rock solid sounds and soaring vocals. You can hear the Michael Jackson influences everywhere - a little bit of the King of Pop will live on through this record.

Awesome job. 👍 Favorite track: Postalmarket.

I’ll remember the year 2020 for at least two reasons: the birth of my daughter Beatrice (she’ll join us right before Christmas!) and the good friends I made, especially during the lockdown.

This new album is a celebration of friendship in the music community, and I want to thank Roxi Drive, my long time friend Riccardo De Angelis, Bronster Bridge, Konstanza and Mayah Camara for joining me in this wonderful party.

Back 2 School is the last leg of a journey that began with the instrumental EP “Scenes”, and after the appreciation of the song “Tra le Fiamme e le Stelle” in my second album “Allegria” I decided to give more importance to vocal compositions.
The search for a warmer, “realistic” sound brought me to a multi-genre album, where you’ll find classic synthwave, r&b, pop-rock and even vaporwave.

As a kid I remember getting a little melancholic but in a strange way also happy when the time to go back to school approached in September; that indefinable feeling pervades the whole album, and you will find yourself bouncing from the classroom to house parties, to psychedelic trips, to school balls, or lost in the echoes of summer memories.
