This shit is dope! Stefano Ritteri presents his new DOPE MANIA EP
Viaggio is back!
Two powerful originals, showcasing a range of different influences to label head, Stefano Ritteri’s music alongside a killer, cosmic house remix by WOLF Music’s, Medlar.
Giving a fresh take on an ‘80s sound, ‘Dope Mania’ slams with rough rhythms, snappy drum machine sequences and warped vocal samples. It wouldn’t be a Ritteri track without a generous helping of analogue synthwork - heavyweight hazy pads sending you straight back to the old school, yet interspersed within a modern, modulating Viaggio sound.
Having been a fan of Medlar’s work for many years, Ritteri enlists the WOLF Music and Delusions Of Grandeur family member to provide a driving, spaced-out house cut full of frenetic arps, crunchy 808 hits, sci-fi samples and an insatiable bassline that’s bound to cause a stir.
Closing it out, ‘Ready For Tonight’ weaves African samples and joyous refrains to form a punchy, bubblegum-esque number. And with all these tracks getting heavy rotations from the likes of Axel Boman, Midland , Kincaid, Soul Clap and many more, it’s destined to become a certified weapon for any discerning DJ.
