A smooth mix of earthy breakbeats, classic house, and jazz-funk made Buscemi an interesting addition to the ranks of trip-hop acts.
The work of Belgian producer Dirk Swartenbroeckx (who indeed named his project after the American character actor of Fargo and Reservoir Dogs fame), Buscemi debuted in 1997 with the Plus Belle Africaine EP and earned airplay on Kiss FM through Gilles Peterson's radio show. The following year brought debut album Mocha Supremo and in mid-2000, Our Girl in Havana. Camino Real arrived in 2003 with guest vocals from Michael Franti and Isabelle Antena. Antena returned for the 2006 release Retro Nuevo. ~ John Bush, Rovi
