Andrea Passenger & Angie Backtomono


  • Disco
  • Global
  • Jazz/Funk/Soul

One of Italy’s best kept secrets, Andrea Passenger is a passionate lover of all black things in music, with an uncommon sensitivity for particular and unique tunes. His selections give life to imaginary scenarios that transport the dancefloor from the intensity of Detroit to the hedonism of New York, from the darkness of a suburban club to the first lights of the dawn of an open air.
Over the years he has joined the Jazz:Re:Found Festival DJ crew, after being a resident of the 'Boogie Nights' parties. He manages the record labels Dora Exp and Icon Of Desire, his productions are published by labels all over Europe, while his dj friendly reworks can be found on Light Touches Records, Rain&Shine, Musica Altra. He also hosts monthly shows on Radio Banda Larga (IT) and Universal Rhythms (UK).

Hopeless vinyl addict, from the post-punk teenage years Angie quickly switched to the black music universe, starting collecting 7"s (R&B, exotica, latin) and then arriving to funk, soul, afrobeat and to jazz in all its shades.
Remaining true to the motto “I tried with the four-on-the-floor, but I can’t make it”, Angie tempted dancefloors and festivals.
She’s been hosting radio shows for several years and she’s currently working as journalist, social media manager, communication strategist for festivals, events and labels.
