Clap! Clap!

A Thousand Skies


One of Italy’s brightest new talents, Clap! Clap! (aka Cristiano Crisci) returns with his second album for Black Acre, following on from his colorful breakthrough debut LP Tayi Bebba. Bringing together disparate inspirations and styles onto the dance-floor of his mind, A Thousand Skies sees Clap! Clap! create a high energy and inventive kaleidoscopic fusion of sound – drawing on the traditional global rhythms of the old world, Hip Hop, Footwork, UK Bass and House. The new album follows Clap! Clap!’s debut album, 2014’s Tayi Bebba, which sound-tracked the tour of an imaginary island. A Thousand Skies is a mix of Crisci’s career to date combining samples and live instrumentation from Clap! Clap! and collaborators such as South African folk singer Bongeziwe Mabandla, John Wizards, and OY. As with his debut, the album is anchored by a story — this time of a young girl’s journey through the stars - which completes the work. Clap! Clap!’s unique blend of global dance and timeless sounds draws from nature, traditional music, field recordings and the electronic savvy of modern centres like Chicago and London. At its core is the inspiration of everyday life, what Crisci calls “the search for new flavours.”
