With support from the likes of Mihalis Safras, Osunlade, Davide Squillace, Joris Voorn, Dubfire, Matthias Meyer, Richie Hawtin, Rocco, Mario Aureo and Özgür Can the young Italian hot shot Riccardo Rizza is kicking off the fall on the Swedish imprint Colourful Recording. The track, >I m Liebe< has been a firm favourite with the Colourful crew over the summer. Now backed by a solid remix pack from Tiger Stripes, Boghosian & Torquato and label honcho Orange Muse, the release radiates a healthy dose of funk infused grooves.
The original mix carries Riccardo’s signature sound of deep thick bass, rolling pianos and haunting vocal snippets. A superb slice of new school tech house from the young Italian. Tiger Stripes brings a darker more upfront energy with big synth lines and percussive stabs, driving yet fragile and beautiful. The Sao Paolo crew Boghosian & Torquato takes the track into deep after hours territory with wood timbres, thick percussive groove and spaced out vocal chants. The Orange Muse remix displays a warped piano loop, solid tom action, sub bass drops and techno rides gunning for peak time plays. All in all a really diverse package adding colour at any given time of the night. More info at www.colourful.se [info from wa]
