Fabio Frittelli (24 July 1966 – 6 February 2013[1]), better known by his pseudonym Mo-Do, was an Italian musician. Mo-Do appeared in the 1990s as an Italian electronic music act. Although Mo-Do was Italian, his songs were in German.

Origin of the name

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

Career

Mo-Do was formed when Frittelli met 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

Frittelli was found dead at his home in Italy on 7 February 2013 at age 46. Police ruled his death as suicide.[5]
