High Heels Breaker


A true sound innovator, Domenico Ferrari aka High Heels Breaker used analog electronics to create the sound textures for his new tracks and blended them with sophisticated beats. Inspired by soul, techno and hip-hop, he has developed a unique sound with a futuristic touch. Zurich-based DJ Kalabrese and singer/songwriter Sarah Palin, with her exceptional voice, signed on as guest musicians. High Heels Breaker brings plenty of electronics and fat beats to his live sets and gets the crowds dancing until their heels break. Ferrari's focus is concentrated on electronic aspects in music and he also works as a composer for movie scores, visual artists and contemporary dance companies and teaches composition and producing at Zurich University of Arts. Besides High Heels Breaker, Ferrari also produces for the electronic duo Ferrari & Tomasi. He has worked with Jamie Lidell, Kalabrese, Swiss rappers Big Zis and Skor, among others, and performed at Sónar Barcelona with spoken-word poet Latasha N. Diggs and star drummer Jojo Mayer. High Heels Breaker performs his live sets "solo" or as a "live band," including drums, keys, electronics and visuals. Domenico Ferrari grew up as the son of Italian immigrants in Zurich, where his parents ran a restaurant. Following his music studies, Ferrari lived in Zurich, New York, and Rome. He won an award providing him with support to work for one year from Zurich, is a member of the Istituto Svizzero Roma, and has received a composition contract from Pro Helvetia. He became a father at a relatively young age and has been involved moving between club music and composition jobs since then, between party and family life. The successful musician has succeeded in reconciling his life's different aspects and emerges strengthened from an initially challenging situation. This, and a certain composure are reflected on this album and Ferrari demonstrates that he is still one of the most trend-setting artists in contemporary electronic music.
