Biography

1.) Francisco - released Cosmic Beam Experience in 1976. Hints of new age before there really was a such a thing, darker electronic passages and psychedelic world music swirl together. Francisco, aka Frank Lupica, was a member of Shanti, a San Francisco based world music and psychedelic fusion band that featured a young Zakir Hussian.

2.) Francisco is Francesco de Bellis (known as on half of Matt101 and Jollymusic) solo project, other aliases include Mr. Cisco. His professional career started in 1996 when he met Marco Passarani from Nature records and together they decided to start a series of projects: releases, radio-show and organization of parties.

At the beginning the first musical project was called MAT101 and it was realized with Mario Pierro (aka Raider of The Lost ARP) and Emiliano Tortora who lately decided to split from the band. They’ve released an album and a couple of singles that helped them to become popular in the electronic underground movement. So far they’ve collected many live performances, many tracks on compilations and remixes using the name MAT101.

After 3 years MAT101 decided to start another project called JOLLY MUSIC: While MAT101 is more electro oriented, JOLLY MUSIC is more into psychedelic disco and electroacoustic soul. The first track came out on a FINALFRONTIER 12” sampler with tracks from the rest of the NATURE RECORDS crew and it did get the attention of the most respected underground crews. Then a couple of singles came out in order to anticipate the full lenght album called ?Jolly Bar?.
