Spy From Cairo
BIOGRAPHY: Real Name Moreno Visini was born in Italy on june 21st in 1969 from non married parents. His mum roots could be traced in Eastern European/kurdish Gypsies ( not sure about the father..). Started to play his fathers guitar when he was 8 years old and immediately loved music ( he learned then, that "MUSIC IS THE ONLY PLACE WHERE MAGIC REALLY HAPPENS").At 15 he left his family to fulfill his dream of musician and run away to London England where he struggled with horrible jobs and language barriers for a year untill he was eventually eccepted in the Arabic/Indian and West Indian community of Ladbroke Grove ( west London ). In the mid 80's he played with a few different bands ranging styles from funk to reggae and world music and then fell in love with electronic music ( the "SAMPLER" was another "magic making instrument" to him! ). In 1986 his father passed away and Zeb returned to Italy to spend some time with his mother, he then went to Spain where he absolutely fell in love with Gypsy flamenco and started to play the classical guitar ( flamenco style ). Back in Britain a year later, he started to create his own style of music, mixing the sounds of the peoples who had been closer to him such as Arabs and West Indians. He was then hired by the band "The Indians" based in the US to record "Indianism" (the band first album ). Moved to Los Angeles for a few months to play guitar with the Indians and make the record then moved to New York ( where he stilll lives almost 20 years later... ). The band The Indians fell apart only 2 years after the release of their first album on Polygram US so Zeb decided to focus on using samplers and keyboards to make his own music trying to learn as many instruments as possible to avoid being depending on "other musicians"
