TUSK WAX TWENTY SEVEN (FEAT ZOMBIES IN MIAMI REMIX)
12" Vinyl UK02.08.18
milanese pair francesco mingrino and marcello carozzi have already asserted themselves in the field of adventurous disco experimentation via two sterling outings on the highly rated bordello a parigi. and now they prove their calibre once again with an ep on the ever-vital tusk wax. there s a delicate tone to younger than me on this record. from the heartstring tugging melodics of easy rolling acid throbber -mubai garden tea- to the subtle synth pop touches of -arizona dream.- -manchester s teen- is a tougher affair with the kind of slow filter sweeping lead hook that rave dreams are made of. while -near to bali- finishes the ep on an ominous beatless note. zombies in miami turn in a remix of -mubai garden tea- that maintains the romantic mood of the original while injecting a little more dancefloor heat into its bones.
uncertainty. no set route. destination unknown. younger than me know it s the journey that counts. and they premiere with quite the musical journeyman. the dulcet tones of none other than the don. fred ventura. accompany the title piece. a grooving melody ticks over against clean beats. san proper kick up some dust. adding some grit and soul to the original. the flip takes on a darker aspect. the giallo flavoured -not for all- looms and lurks before the dream woven depths of -don demorder-.
younger than me are marcello carozzi and john ming. a rising dj and producer duo from milan. they teamed up with singer lara caprotti for their debut release. the uplifting synth arrangements combined with the soulful voice of lara results in an ultimate sexy-disco-rave euphoria. fellow italians massimiliano pagliara and uabos handled the remixes and and put their sophisticated signature on top. a future club classic. sweet as honey!
hard ton. italy s extravagant duo of all things house music are back on luv shack records. unleashing six steaming hot tracks on the -queer nation ep- - a precursor to the first full hard ton album that is due for 2017. -queer nation- has singer max swapping his falsetto with a dark mangled voice. reciting names of queer icons over a dry acid house track that rejoices in repetition. and rightly so. classic music head honcho luke solomon s remix of -queer nation- builds up an intense 707 drum pattern. underlining rhythm guitars and max s voice. ending in a bold acid climax. italian newcomers younger than me also take on -queer nation-. marrying an early 80 s wave touch with a classic house approach.
