Richey V & Simone Zino
12" Vinyl D
Redimension welcomes newcomers Richey V & Simone Zino to the label with an exclusive collaboration from the young Italian duo.
Hailing from Milan, the pair cut their teeth performing regularly at the cities best known techno clubs and events, leading to Simone gaining a spot as resident DJ at famed Italian venue Bolgia, and Richey launching his own weekly techno event, VOID. With further support on their releases from well-known DJs such as Joseph Capriati, Tale Of Us and Adam Beyer, they have built a strong and growing fan base. “Hysteria” is the first collaborative EP to come from the couple, and it does not disappoint. The eponymous track creates tension with a stripped back groove, and uses hypnotic synths and an arpeggiated lead synth to generate an extra wave of intensity, resulting in a brutal workout, worthy of its namesake. Track two, simply titled “Action” lifts the Ep’s energy even further. With a sinister lead vocal throughout, the hard-hitting drums and warning sirens give a taste of what’s to come. Next up, “Rave On” is a nonstop workout that takes the EP deeper using unique vocal chants, and a buzzing lead synth. Keeping the spirit of the rave alive, “Rave On” is a throwback to the origins of techno, and is set to damage dance floors from warehouse raves to intimate clubs. The fourth track on the EP, “Empire” uses a thick and driving bassline, and the accompanying melodic synths to create moments of euphoria. The driving techno track is relentless in its dramatic suspense, and leaves the Dancefloor wanting more. Last up is the EP’s digital exclusive. “Meteora” is an epic slice of melodic techno, using snare rolls and swelling synth pulses to create waves of sonic energy, the track is a welcome finale to the EP and rounds of a truly unique and powerful EP from the young Italians.
