Like many of music’s most gifted, Andrea Tirone, the 27-year-old Italian songwriter and producer behind Mind Enterprises, is a perennial outsider. Forming a post-punk band in his teens, he soon started to crave the UK’s more vibrant music scene. Two years ago he decided to leave his family and friends in Italy; London, for Tirone, signified freedom, and a place where you could be surrounded by other oddballs and music obsessives, possibly even make a career out of it too. Once arriving to London, he armed himself with a laptop full of songs and made a list of 100 labels he wanted to send his music to. Luckily, one of the most exciting independent labels in the city, Double Denim Records, replied before he’d even got to ten. At the hazy end of last August, a taster single was released entitled ‘Summer War’. It was soon after this that Because Music came on board. A perfect fit for Mind Enterprises, his eccentric and intricate recordings would be developed by the label who housed the talents of acts like Metronomy, Django Django - an ideal home for an artist who wants to experiment and mould their own genre. Now living in London and recording his debut, the change in location hasn’t had much affect on his sound, mainly because Tirone works in darkness; curtains closed and laptop on, “I can’t work in light. You focus more on the sound in the dark.” As a result of the dream-like state his mind inhabits, his lyrics are more like a mantra, looping and weaving in and out of heavy beats and samples. It’s this passionate nature which makes Mind Enterprises’ soundscape so brash, beautiful, intuitive and full of imagination, and perhaps the reason he’ll never quite fit in to any scene or category. Perhaps the reason why he’ll succeed!
