What was it like working on Giustizia &Noches new album?
For me it’s a great new style, a combination of black soul and sophisticated pop style of the old indigenous, often likened to a LMFAO, combined with NERD So just imagine how many functions are held by their energy! Working on Giustizia & Noches album was fun and a next god step for me as a producer. It’s really good to work with such talented people and to this so positively crazy. Doing 4 out of 6 tracks gave me the opportunity to set the tone of the album and having a variety of features with Joe Luca, Noches made it a lot of fun too! They are really great and extremely well to work with their sensational vocals. We originally met in studio and always a good vibe in the studio between all people – from lawyers to managers to us artists.

I always have a lot of melodies in my head. Time is not enough to get them all done. If to this you will find great buddies from the music industry which works so well as with Joe Luca & Noches. And always having a vision, knowing how you want to connect to people. Working with the guys, it was really something. Every time it’s like a great explosion of our ideas. They are really great. It is just that I have my own ideas and compositions that they are well able to arrange and vice versa. For them and for me to count the true emotions communicated fans. New, clean energy.
Giustizia and Noches
Giustizia & Noches are independent artists embodying the irrepressible energy of a new vanguard in world music today, high-octane North American pop, electronic, and club tracks shot through with multi-national inspiration. Raised in Canada’s capital city and steeped in both the rich Italian and French traditions of their families and a pulsing proximity to American rap, Giustizia began writing and recording tri-lingual hip hop tracks as early as 1998 and Noches was his first fan and then became an artist on Giustizia La Bomba music as well as co-founder. Friends since high school, the two realized they had highly-compatible creative gifts: Giustizia the natural poet, melody-master, multi faced talented artist, actor and crowd-winning performer with an explosive physical presence, and Noches the technical craftsman with grounding, soulful base and a darker, smoldering appeal. Their partnership manifested in the creation of the Giustizia La Bomba music label which has signed independent artists from all over the globe, many of whom are featured on the label’s latest album, “Secrets and Treasures by Joe Luca” (released June, 2010). That celebrated release as well as previous albums by Giustizia “International Playa” (released March, 2000) and “In tha mix – The art of a champion” (released 2001) have led to continuous sales and downloads in over 20 countries, and Giustizia & Noches have amassed hundreds of thousands of international fans and followers across digital platforms while consistently ranking in the Top 100 Canadian artists on ReverbNation. They are currently at work on a collaboration with Italian rap artist Il Cappallaio Matto, and Hitfinders as well as two, new addictive club tracks for Summer 2013, “Goin’ Out” (now available on iTunes) and the soon-to-be-released “Summer Life.” The future is exciting for Giustizia & Noches and they continue to work hard to produce the most excellent independent Pop, electronic music they can release to their fans.
