There are many producers listed under the name Milano in the Discogs oracle, but the only real one is the first: a mysterious man who started to put out his first releases and remixes in 2001 and who - around about 2009, after a long hiatus in his musical activity - came to land at the Turbo label with reworks for Zombie Nation and Zoo Brazil & Adam Sky, putting out his debut EP in 2011, “The Fall”. Now, Milano has prepared his follow-up to that powerful display of techno, a new 12” titled “Ejection” that Turbo will put on sale this week. Here you have an exclusive opportunity to listen to it in its entirety, and also to read a few of Milano’s answers to our questions. The truth is that he remains hidden behind his mask, impermeable in his mystery.
