Montefiori Cocktail

The two brothers, sons of sax player Germano Montefiori, a talented 60’s and 70’s musician, before becoming Montefiori Cocktail, have worked separately. Francesco was a producer of house and breakbeat music, while Federico played sax in many bands, such as Ladri di Biciclette and Good Fellas . Their career as Montefiori Cocktail starts in 1997 with the release of “Raccolta n. 1” followed by “Raccolta n. 2” in 2000 and "Re*Shaken-remixes album" in 2002, published by Irma.

After three years and their move to Sir Richard Branson’s V2 Records, their third album, titled “Raccolta n.3”, was released in November 2003. Their music is inspired by the sound that used to be called "Easy Listening" and that has become in its modern form, "Lounge Music". Montefiori are Italy’s major representative of the easy listening evolution, offering the 60’s sounds enriched with technological elements. Their style is inspired by the 60’s and the beginning of the 70’s. They grasp the vitality spirit conveyed by that period music, by reproposing it in musical forms that belong to our time, through the contamination with house, breakbeat, jungle, drum 'n bass sounds, etc..
It sounds like they want to prove that good music never gets old and, as the years go by, it gains its own consistency.
