Jolly Mare

IT / Bastard Jazz Recordings

Apulian producer and dj, Fabrizio Martina, a.k.a Jolly Mare, conquered every part of Europe with his Italian disco-music revival.

Fabrizio Martina is an established turntablist and multi-instrumentalist, hailing from Salento with a master degree in engineering. Defined as the “new face of Italian Disco”, his success started with taking part in the New York 2013 edition of Red Bull Music Academy, followed by sets in international festivals (Sonar in 2014) and collaboration with artists such as Roy Ayers, Thundercat, and Soul Clap.

His debut album “Mechanics” (2016), was conceived as a “conceptual journey through the mechanics of groove and the dynamics of love”. “Mechanics” draws from ‘80s dance to explore vast musical lands, thus creating an original and unique sound, thanks to Martina’s technical abilities and deep knowledge of funk.
