Modo may refer to several artists:
Mo-Do's real name is Fabio Frittelli (1964–2013). He was born in Monfalcone, (North-East of Italy). His mother is an Austrian teacher, his father a translater in a import-export company. Fabio had his first musical experience as a leader of the hard rock group Blue The King. Then he was bassist for a group called Validi Alibi. He also used to be a model for Dolce & Gabbana, Armani and Kenzo. Afterwards he met the producer Claudio Zennaro, they joined under the name of Mo-Do (Mo for Montfalcone and Do for Domenica because Fabio was born on a Sunday).
His first single Eins, Zwei, Polizei, co-produced with Einstein Dr. Deejay (aka Claudio Zennaro & Fulvio Zafret) and inspired from 2 old German songs (Der Komissar of Falco et Da Da Da of Trio), remained n°1 during 1 month in Italy before triumphing in the whole Europe. His recording studio is located in Udine. He speaks Italian, German, English and a few French. He uses German for his songs because he thinks it fits well to this musical style. He loves to dance. According to him, his main quality is to be honest. His weakness in that he is not very physionomist.
After the extreme success of his first hit, 2 other singles were released in the same powerful style. Super Gut (which means 'Super Good') in 1994 (# 28 in Israel) and Geh Mal Tanzen (which could be understood as 'Come Dance A Little') in 1995. Gema Tanzen was very different from the original album version : it was completely remixed, with new sounds & styles.
(2) Mo-Do is also an Italian progressive rock band from Italy.
(3) Modo is also the name of the nocturnal incarnation of UK national OTL.
Only appearing late at night when stricken with insomnia, Modo needs to keep himself occupied without disturbing others in the vicinity who are successfully sleeping. This he does by playing around very softly with synthesizers and found sounds, and occasionally a track is deemed suitable for public consumption.
Minimalist debut release "Small Hours" was released to universal critical acclaim, and the follow-up: "Stasis - for the Long Journey Home" is set to follow in a more rhythmic style, cementing a sturdy sense of progress through each track rather than the free-form sonic experimentation found on its predecessor.
