Emilio Larocca Conte, aka Slow Wave Sleep, is an Italian songwriter, composer and producer. Before starting his solo career in 2015, he has been a member of RELIC (death metal, ITA), Jureduré (pop/folk, ITA), Spookshow Inc. (industrial rock, LIT), as well as having collaborated with numerous artists as guitarist. Furthermore, he has worked as production assistant for the composers Jacopo Baboni-SchilingiMichele TadiniMarco BiscariniAntonio RimedioDaniele Furlati, and he works also as soundtrack composer for movies, short films and videogames.

After numerous demos and collaborations, in January 2018 the debut album L’Ultimo Uomo is released by Cockroach International Production, in which each musical style is incorporated into an eclectic and surreal song form with Italian lyrics called liquid pop. Due to the versatility and theatricality of the music, SWS’s live shows are emotionally intense with songs are rearranged for band or played as electronic sets or acoustic duo. The entire production is focused on Réfles, a fictional character, and the bizarre narration of his life through dreams.
