The first 2 songs by Modulo5, compiled by EZ Louge FM by DJ Robert Passera, entitled "Check-in all'aeroporto" and "Spy Samba". These two tracks, well-suited for a soundtrack were the starting point for what is now a well defined project. After a short break of musical productions, due to the continuous search for sound influences to be inspired by, Dave met Paolo "Apollo" Negri in 2006.
This famuos and widely appreciated organist devoted to Hammond Groove, was met during a Mastica live act, an Italian Hard Rock Band, in which he is still collaborating. Apollo has an impressive curriculum since his name is linked to bands such as "The Link Quartet", "Wicked Minds", "Kims Teddy Bears" and "David Stockdale". After a quick chat, Apollo decided to accept Dave's proposal of being part of Modulo5.
After 3 months of hard work the 10 tracks making the full-length "Soundsational Movements" were completed. The concept of this album is what everybody is looking for while listening to music: "get emotional from an original and intense sounds and groove". Dave and Apollo wish this record to be a hypothetical soundtrack for listeners.
Between influences contaminating the sound of Modulo5 there are the Space Age Pop, Sci-Fi cinema of 50’s, Soul and Funk, Hammond Groove, Bossa Nova, Italian B-Movies from the 60s, and the Soft-Core cinema from the Italian 70s.
