Originally released in the summer of 2013, Vincenzo Salvia’s full-length debut, Auto Radio, marries classic Italo disco elements with more modern electronic sounds and is truly a masterwork of the synthwave genre. A concept album realized as fictional radio broadcast from 1985, Auto Radio takes you on an imaginary journey through Italy – along the Amalfi Coast, through the busy streets of Milan, and into the lovely Italian countryside.  But more importantly, the album takes you on a very real aural journey through the wonderful sounds of Italo disco’s golden age. Soaring melodies and rolling bass lines transport you to another time and place. But remember, nothing stays the same…

Just as the Eighties came to a close, so too did the popularity of Italo disco, as the country embraced the much different sounds of new wave, Eurobeat, and house music.  Fortunately, you can now relive that glorious decade and the wonder and beauty of great Italo disco music, with a modern twist.  Lipstick Crush Records is proud to present Vincenzo Salvia’s Auto Radio, for the first time ever on double vinyl – in two colorways (golden yellow and blue and white marble) – with redesigned artwork by George Gold (Nightcrawler) and mastered specifically for vinyl by Jeppe Hasseriis (Dynatron).  So grab your suitcase in the night, hop in the car, and just drive.  You’re tuned in to Auto Radio and the possibilities are infinite.  Lie on the beach of Rimini.  Watch the sunset from Maratea.  Enjoy every moment of your travels – but be sure to grab a postcard to remember them by, because holidays are not forever.

Ships within 7-10 business days.

My interview for Drive Radio. Not only pizza.

Question N°1:
Can you please introduce yourself to those that may be new to your work?

I started to join the synthwave music in 2012 with my first EP Voyage. After this album my music had lots of evolutions, jumping from nostalgic ballads to some groovy Italo Disco tunes.

Question N°2: What are your musical influences? What kind of music do you listen when not producing?

I’m from Italy, so my main influence is the Italo Disco. This kind of music was always included in some funny italian comedies (Cinepanettoni) which I always loved and still love to watch. When I don’t produce my music I sometimes listen to some chillout not to focus on pizza.

Question N°3: What is your earworm at the moment? What have you listening to on repeat recently?

In this moment I’m listening to the Vacanze di Natale ’83 soundtrack, in loop. I’m already in the Christmas mood!


Question N°4: What inspires you while working on new Music? What inspired you for the work on your THE SUMMONER track?

60% of my music is focused on pizza. 20% on girls, 20% on Milfs. That’s all.
When I worked on my THE SUMMONER track I wanted something powerful for my scene. I searched for some 80s workout music style because it had to be fast and hot like a pizza in the wood oven.


Question N°5: What programs and instruments do you use for your Music? What is your favourite VST you use? And which Drum Machine do you prefer?

I work on Steinberg Nuendo as DAW with some plugins such as Arturia V Collection, Minimonsta, Zebra 2 and OP-X PRO II. The last two ones are definitely my favourite!

Question N°6: What are your favourite Movie flicks and why?

My favourite ones are almost all the movies from Robin Williams. I loved him, he was always such a strong inspiration for me.
Another one is Rain Man, with Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. I love everything in that movie, the story, the music (by Hans Zimmer), the interpretation from Dustin Hoffman was amazing.

Question N°7: What is the next step for you after the release of THE SUMMONER OST? A new Album? A new ep? Or other projects youre involved in?

I’m working on a new album feat. Pj D’Atri. He’s a crazy guitarist based in Austria. I also have a side project with an italian singer and we are focusing on some radio italo-pop tunes. Hope you’ll have the chance to listen to everything as soon as possible!
