Chris Costa, Hot Dust and new crepuscular music
Hello! I’m Chris Costa.
After a year of deep commitment I got a NEW ALBUM!
The new alias is HOT DUST.
This is my first full album since 2012.
In the past years I produced albums of my original projects and
worked and played with different artists.
At some point I started to play solo live shows, testing different setups
and improvisin’ a lot. Yes! I had a wonderful time!
After years of experiments it was about time to start a new journey.
I followed my instinct and started to work exclusively on MY MUSIC.
This journey brought me towards new music and sounds, and now it’s time
to share them.
I RECORDED, PRODUCED AND MIXED the album in my studio in Milan.
I did some recordings at the Q-Room, the stunning analog fetish wonderland created by Sven Miracolo.
Some artists I admire joined me on this journey:
Dj Luca Fronza - subs/bass/beats
Nicola Peruch and Giovanni Boscariol - Oberheim 4 Voice
Marco Maccarini - spoken word
The result: 9 TRACKS, intense and crepuscular, they were born in winter.
Along the way I met the spanish artist JOSE MOLINA.
I love his artworks, they are in tune with my music.
He allowed me to use one of his amazing paintings for the album cover! Wow!
I produced the first VIDEO with the help of:
Matteo Bittante - choreographer, art director
Shake Plastic Dreamer- director
Luca Caon - director
And an amazing team who worked with passion for Art’s sake!:
LUCIA SANTORSOLA, CRISTIAN CUCCO, MARIO GIALLANZA, LUCA CONDORELLI, GIOVANNI LEONE, LORENZO COBELLI, VITTORIA FRANCHINA, ALICE CARRINO, FABIO CALVISI, MRK, CATERINA, CLAUDIA RUSSO and TOM REBL, amazing designer that is featured in the video and kindly lent us his collection for the shooting.
CARBONI ARTI E MESTIERI e KILLER KICCEN helped us with essential logistic support
The result is magic, it’s without any doubt the best VIDEO I’ve ever produced,
I wanted to do Art and I think we succeeded.
This is just the beginning and now I’m here to ask for

Project created by
Chris Costa - new A.k.a. Hot Dust
Chris Costa, singer, performer, multi-instrumentalist, arranger and producer.
Hot Dust is the new A.k.a that was born during this musical journey.
In these fast and shallow times of blind consumption I took a year off everything, startin’ right at the beginning of a pretty cold winter.
I wrote a lot and explored sound while listenin’ to Chomsky’s heavy information about the world and interviews of the genius energetic mind of Robin Williams and other great forward thinkers. After I finished the first roughs I finally got out of my studio and I noticed I had grown a beard in the meantime.
I found my new home in this crepuscular space, nevertheless connected to a supernova.
