About this project

Versione ITALIANA

A little something about me

Over the past 20 years i’ve been traveling across different countries of the world, thanks to MUSIC. I am a dj /music producer and vibe designer, coming from an underground music scene .My name is Fabio Genito http://unda.vision/fabiogenito

myself :)
myself :)

Music and traveling taught me to embrace life with “open mind”. That’s what programmers call “open source”. That really improved my life.

Having started from the bottom and living different experiences taught me to appreciate every single breathe and enjoy every single journey. Never-ending curiosity, continuous hungry for knowledge and need to evolve to improve are what i live for.

Life is an extraordinary journey which i decided to live without compromises (taking on my own risks , in good or bad).

That need to express ideas, shapes and feelings through creativity is something marvelous and illogical at same time. Something magic which moves the world and a huge potential that we all have built-in . (i call this “the Ducky factor”) 

The Ducky Factor
The Ducky Factor

I met so many people . Different kind of humans but still humans.

The birth of UNDA (Underground Not Dared Atmos) as record label

Unda , the record label , was born because of a strong need to have an independent voice out of any market impositions, out of any “free work for nothing” , in a totally fucked up music industry where music and talent are not the core factors anymore.

We built the label on quality and research, to develop our very own sound identity. Something unexplored but deeply planted to my roots (when “house music” was a movement, not a genre), unique and not necessarily related to any specific musical genre (House is not a genre, it’s the motherboard , just like Rhythm is the essence of Music). No boundaries.

The ones who categorize music into genres are ignorants , because they ignore its prime essence. Musical genres and categorization are just a dumb invention of devastated markets. You should trust only to one thing to “find your Music” : i like it or not.

When i started the label two years ago, I still didn’t have a name and a logo for it, though. But i knew exactly where i wanted to start from : the underground culture . The idea was to dare, producing unexplored sounds coming from the underground (not just “house” at all and with a big “world /ethnic” influence), to discover and create new atmospheres without any boundaries. And so Underground Not Dared Atmos came out.

The birth of "Amando" and what UNDA spiritually means to me

But i still wasn’t satisfied..i felt something was missing. I also wanted to express the more spiritual and deep side of my vision. And it was there ! Right in front of me, as seen the latin origin and the meaning of the word UNDA. It means "wave" and sound it's an oscillation of waves , vibrating on frequencies!

I did develop the whole concept from there, naturally, going with the flow like if some guiding spirit was showing me the way. I felt a powerful , warm and ethereal light inside me. And this has nothing to do with religion. Although i respect every human who has FAITH and believe in his/her own religion or goal, i do believe SPIRITUALITY is the real upper perception of life.

That’s how “Amando” was born, our first release. Inspired by a wonderful state of natural ecstasy which got me mind traveling very quickly to apparently dissonant world corners. An intense passion feeling was filling up my soul. I was living a giant gratitude feeling. I felt in harmony with Universe. And that’s when something majestic happened inside me, like if i was connected to a divine UNIVERSAL LOVE consciousness.

The evolution from record label to a bigger "mother core" inspired by a vision  

The feedbacks i got from the industry people in my segment (some of the best dj’s in the world , press and media..) were truly encouraging.

I always felt to create something big like a “mother core" which could have been getting together everything i loved. Something which could have been giving me the chance to express myself through creativity in different freedom forms, not just music, according to an “inner voice” which i always have been listening to. Some call it consciousness , instinct, inspiration , flow..i call it GUIDING LIGHT. So i’ve been collecting apparently disconnected “things” for years, in a sort of continuous brainstorming, guided by this LIGHT. Sounds , words, styles, objects, perfumes, remembers, feelings, happenings, clothing, tastes and so on…   

The vision of global team : my Dream Team

but that wasn’t all.. i kept updating an eventual “list” of people picked-up among my network, like a Dream Team i felt , first or then, would have been related to my life masterplan. I was imagining them all being seated around a big elliptic table, like those being used in corporate meetings, and everybody with their own belief and their own skills . Talented and successful people all differents from each other but everybody with a common factor : we want to BE OURSELF.

A Dream Team eventually born in Italy to reach a broader area : the WORLD, to change the status quo. The will to create that “mother core” base was stronger and predominant. And it was happening...

The creative flow and inspiration behind the birth of  UNDA fashion brand and "i Was Born Amando"

So i started designing sketches on some post-it about everything was flowing thru my mind, without paying much attention to technics (i’m not a great designer), going with the instinctual flow to don’t loose ideas and inspiration. I was immersed in “flying paper notes” (lol) and i was ashamed of them but i was caring about them like they were my Holy Grail (and they still are!) . And some of them doodles were exactly the same ones i was drawing when i was a kid. Weird forms/drawings/sketches i wasn’t able to explain (and i’m still not) but they sounded so familiar to me and they always came out so naturally. You know when you are talking on the phone or you feel bored at that meeting or you are at school and you do those weirdo doodles on the paper or on your tablet? There you go! And by them doodles the “I Was Born Amando” capsule collection was born. That's when the fashion brand was born.

The launch of the startup  

So i launched the startup which we could now define as “Style Factory” , empowering what we call UNIVERSAL BEAUTY.

UNDA
UNDA

Style (not fashion..) is something you gotta feel inside. It’s something i always considered fundamental and distinguishing in everything. Everybody of us has its own style. It’s actually style which elevates something up from its apathetic condition to a wider Illuministic vision. And it has nothing to do with “fashion” or so called “trends” (horrible words to define a style, though).

From visions & ideas to real product: research and company setup

So i didn’t do nothing but followed that light, with a huge dose of “i don’t give a damn if i fail” . And with that risky foolish attitude, i started to brainstorm trying to understand how to get those “doodles” into something “wearable”, to also have others experiencing on their skins what i experienced or “saw” yet.

This research has been going on for years. Years spent in learning a lot by some people and very less by some others (usually i call those “poets”, with all the due respect to the real poets). Years of great peaks but most of all of great downs, doubts and “this thing is freaking me out. I want to give up” moments..

I was completely fascinated by that so called “fashion system” mechanism and its impact on “beauty”, but also very stressed out as newbie approaching to the unknown. I had no clue how to do that but i knew what i wanted and i knew it wasn't easy to transform that into reality, especially when most of the people in that system are not on your same path : they only look at profits and follow the status quo.

The prototyping phase and the definition of "i Was Born Amando" as a fashion collection

After a long run we reached the “prototype” phase with plenty of them done. Those prototypes actually got us to define “I Was Born Amando” as a collection. A limited edition unisex / man / woman apparel capsule , unique and funky, inspired by the harmonic sound of Universe . And what’s that sound ? Its' LOVE.

A sustainable piece of art shaped on you, designed to last

Eeach piece of the capsule (which consists of t-shirts , beanies and sweaters/jumpers, so far) has a unique design, special treatments and prestigious details. Every garment has a different story, a different sound identity and a different perfume. It's a piece of art shaped on you. It’s designed to last, not to be thrown away like some “fast fashion poets” want you to do.

We can still show this Planet the due respect by remodulating our habits and build a sustainable world by creating timeless VALUE.

A non-linear excellence product made against any imposed and ridicolous industry rules : the Universal Beauty Revolution

Every garment is entirely made in Italy from scratch (and from those “doodles”!) by the hands of experienced masters artisans led by our vision, in a textile industry destroyed by itself , by its arrogance, usually full of approximation and , again, blinded by profit. A supply chain who only complains but barely does something to evolve. How? Believing in the new, believing in startups , young brands , new ideas , to create a sustainable chain. Despite this , it’s still the best textile industry in the world and the most envied and imitated. But it has to change. And we are here to enhance that change.

We still believe a lot in the Made in Italy supply chain , though, but it's time to speak our mind, as italian startup, to ensure style a new era : the Universal Beauty revolution.

Every detail in both the creative and production chain we built is not a detail : it’s a world of its own. I pretended excellence-finished detail care on everything , from textures to packaging. And most of the times arguing with the status quo “poets” (remember them?) .Some might be skilled in their jobs but they don’t have a clue of what “having a vision” means.

Company goal in the near future: a total look brand

One of our goals, as company, is surely to bring the venture to be a total-look brand (not only related to fashion) to express at 390 degrees (yes..lol..that additional 30 degrees is what we call the “Undafined") the values of the concept and so of the brand.

Why Kickstarter ?

We believe that Kickstarter is probably the best tool ever created in this century to make this happen. We look forward to find and meet other humans to share our vision with. We need peers to build a tribe with, a movement which can be capable to overcome the status quo with creativity and love. And we know you guys exist ! This is also a great way to give all our friends and supporters a chance to show some love on different levels. The time is now.

Knowledge , experience and reputation

We got everything ready-to-go yet : knowledge in the industry, a tested, experienced and trusted supply chain, a stylish website http://unda.vision , a performing shop online platform http://shop.unda.vision , a quite good following on all the socialnetworks and , most of all, a solid reputation and a priceless network of people (including worldwide Ambassadors and "Messengers" http://unda.vision/messengers) built on more than 20 years of relations, ready to take off .

The limited edition test run on the market

We already produced a little stock of garments in limited edition which had a test run on the market (via the shop online) with some interesting results. And we proudly can say now that we got the proper technical assets to guarantee the production of small or big quantities with the same accurate handmade excellence quality. 


What do we miss ?

Funds! Funds to ensure the entire production on the capsule and set the base for new products. Funds to set the base for a worldwide network of multi-sensorial pop-ups to be launched in 25 cities all over the World in 3 years. Funds to produce a larger advertising campaign, better made, for a broader audience which doesn't mean "mass", we don't need everybody, we need a tribe who believes in us! We need funds to build a marvelous team. We want to hire all over the world ! We need other creators ideas and skills to be inspired and to form them to what’s next, to build together something never done before. We don’t need employees, we need fellas !

This also includes the creation of a base for the production of non-linear UNDAevents including fashion shows , parties, guerrilla marketing and advertising campaign , photoshootings, castings, models, locations , as well as funds for specific hardware / software equipment for prototyping , product design, pressing vinyl and so on.

Risks and challenges

Hopefully we explained this big challenge in the project description yet. The concrete risks are : 1) in order, to produce new items and new products, and so to ensure Rewards can be shipped as scheduled (maximum 2 weeks from funding) we need to pay for the "I Was Born Amando" Capsule Collection production expenses first as we have some suppliers still pending to receive full payments. This has been possible thanks to our personal reputation built in 20 years but , as explained in the video and text description yet, not all the suppliers are on our same path. So, the sooner we fund, the sooner we can process their payments which, despite our total requested funding goal of €190.000 is a very small part. The challenges? We got so many. Just check out the video and the description of the project. It should be clear to you after that but if you still need additional infos and details just ask. We are here to evolve and to try to make our part in changing a part of this Planet which could be a whole World
