Massimo Discepoli

Drummer and multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and teacher, since many years Massimo Discepoli works in the most different areas of music. He began his artistic career studying and participating in workshops with leading international masters, also attending the Berklee Schools clinics at Umbria Jazz 2004, receiving compliments by Giovanni Tommaso. Among the most important projects that see him involved in that period should be noted the trio Vibrham, active between 2004 and 2006, that allowed him to create an original fusion of jazz, funk and drum ‘n’ bass. With the trio he realizes the self-titled album in 2006 (which also contains his own compositions), as well as taking part in an intense concert activity. At the same time he began to study piano, bass and guitar, and also approaching electronic music; here he got the idea to start making his own music, which became reality with the creation of the Nheap project
