Seamlessly incorporating influences of movement, expression and soul into his production, Valentino Canzani Mora has never strayed far from this ethos since his first productions. Raised by Uruguayan parents – of which his father was a trained musician and sound engineer with a home studio; Mora was always surrounded by music and began his experimentation with it at a very young age.

Before taking on his given name, Mora had a string of releases including one LP under his previous French Fries moniker, during which time he co-curated ClekClekBoom Recordings, as well as handled the artistic direction for the label. Since then he has shifted his attention to his own label ‘IDO’ – or – Intercontinental Dance Organization. Drawing inspiration from the early ambient house scenes, IDO centres around melting percussion and modular synthesizers into a rhythmic migration of hypnotic soundscapes.

Furthermore, IDO is Mora’s outlet for researching alternative anxiety relief methods and meditation through sound. He recently started curating a compilation series based on this concept called “Transcendental Movements” featuring 10 international artists. He reveals a more techno and experimental sound on the labels Dement3d and Spazio Disponibile, with a full-length experimental album coming out in 2020.
