Music has always been an important part of his life, and at the age of 13, after hearing Marcus Miller's music, he decided to learn to play the bass. In 2019, in his first participation to Victor Wooten's bass camp, Lorenzo played Marcus Miller's "Power" on the stage. Victor Wooten was kind enough to shoot a video of the performance and send it to Marcus Miller, who responded "Damn, Lorenzo is trying to take somebody's head off!". Lorenzo's biggest bass inspirations are Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, Victor Wooten, Stuart Zender. Since 2018 Lorenzo has been playing at Umbria Jazz festival almost every year, and participated to the Berklee clinics where he met some of the musicians that have been involved in the making of his first official track.

Duoya

Duoya is the funky brainchild of Gustav Horneij and Dimitrios Karatzios. The two met through a shared obsession with jazz vinyl and later started jamming, eventually forming Organic Pulse Ensemble together. While that band in time would turn into a one man venture, their creative chemistry was still there when they decided to start sending recordings and song sketches back and forth during the spring of 2020. The resulting record is a socially distanced synthastic funk record. It draws from a wide variety of inspirations but mostly, it's based around the idea that anything goes as long as it's funky.
