Mo-Do is the pseudonym used by the Italian musician Fabio Frittelli (24 July 1966 – 6 February 2013[1]). Mo-Do appeared in the 1990s as an Italian techno band. Despite being Italian, Mo-Do's songs are in German.

Origin of the name[edit]

The name Mo-Do is claimed to originate from the two first letters of Frittelli's birth-town (Monfalcone) and the day of his birth (Domenica, i.e. Sunday in Italian).[2]

Career[edit]

Mo-Do was formed when Frittelli met the producer Claudio Zennaro. Other producers who worked with Frittelli (sometimes quoted as members of the group)[3] were Fulvio Zafret, Mario Pinosa and Sergio Portaluri.

Mo-Do is probably best known from the single "Eins, Zwei, Polizei" (co-produced with Zennaro and Zafret) which reached No. 1 in the German, Austrian and Italian music charts.[4]

Death[edit]

On 7 February 2013, Fabio Frittelli was found dead at his home in Italy. Police ruled that suicide was the cause of death.[5]
