THE SWEETLIFE FAKTORY
Corso Dante 118 10126, Torino
Music is the DNA of all the Faktory activities. Born from the experience with the band “The Sweet Life Society” which can boast more than ten years of international tours in the most prestigious festivals and clubs, as well as numerous studio works. Thanks to all this, other artistic works have come to life over time, including the Black Seed Records label and the One Blood Family band, the first Italian band made up of asylum-seeking migrants.
The Sweet Life Society musical project was born in 2009 with the partnership between the two producers from Sabaudia/from Piedmont Gabriele Concas and Matteo Marini.
In 2013 a cast contract with Warner Music Group is signed for the release of the first album, Swing Circus, which sees the light in the summer of 2014 and through which the project takes its sound on tour in the United States and Canada, with an exclusive audiovisual concept.
The band presents three albums and boasts participation in prestigious festivals and venues such as Glastonbury, Eurosonic, Bestival, Lovebox, Wilderness, Latitude, Boomtown, Fusion, Lowlands, Paradiso Amsterdam, Village Underground London and many others.

The first Italian band made up of asylum-seeking migrants, it was born from a project conceived with Cooperativa Atypica of Collegno (To) and Studio Rubedo.
One Blood Family is a talented multi-ethnic ensemble made up of some asylum seekers who have been able to find in music the suitable language to express anger and hope, and to conquer a leading space in a new world, which does not always know how to understand or value them.
“One Blood Family è un progetto di fratellanza che trova
affermazione attraverso lo strumento della cultura e della musica. Ma OBF è soprattutto la trasformazione delle disperazioni in speranza, in felicità e partecipazione. La trasformazione della nostra utopia immaginaria in qualcosa di concreto: l’affermazione di quel principio base per cui tutti apparteniamo alla medesima comunità umana.”
Born in partnership with Egea Music and the producer from Salento Moreno Turi, BlackSeed Records travels on the thin line that divides the most experimental and poetic electronics from dub music, hip hop, beats and club atmospheres. More than an electronic music label, it is a great common space. A large garden for the sake of precision, of fertile land for good ideas and musical proposals, with respect for the artist’s roots, with an eye to the future and, above all, with a soul.
Music production shows an ample activity: the creation of original soundtracks for cinema and theatre, sound addition for commercials, productions for the likes of Sean Paul and it has been worth the signing of a publishing contract with the Sugar record labels and BMG.
Moreover, thanks to the creation of the soundtrack for the films “Le ultime cose” (“The last things”) and “Brutti e cattivi” (“Bad and ugly”), The Sweet Life Society took part in the editions of the Venice Film Festival 2017 and 2018.
