Italian producer and visual artist My Dry Wet Mess, aka Giovanni Civitenga, is a name that has resonated in the world of left field/beats since it's most exciting fledgling years. Though his father is the bass player for Ennio Morricone's orchestra and a studio guitarist on numerous Italian records, from a young age Gio was drawn towards hip hop. Having released albums on Daedleus' Magical Properties imprint and Flying Lotus' Nina Tune-associated Brainfeeder venture, it is a great pleasure for Fine Grains to present the 'Laptop Lapdance EP' - his debut vinyl release.

My Dry Wet Mess' unique sound is instantly recognisable for it's multi-layered intricacy and offbeat charm. Skittering beats slide through surreal melodies and distorted vocals or keys. An uplifting and awkward dance-inducing experience often ensues. In 'Laptop Lapdance', Civitenga encapsulates all of these exciting elements with four engrossing story-telling tracks. Remixes are provided by Hyperdub' Ikonika, Glasgow-based beats experimentalist Dam Mantle and Highlife' Auntie Flo.
