T. Ruggieri – No Way

February 21, 2013 in Singles

T. Ruggieri No Way Mesmerize MusiqueAnother new label makes its TIWWD debut! Tonight it’s the turn of Mesmerize Musique, set up by three young Italian producers and now coming with what’s only their second release.

T.Ruggieri, a name that should be familiar by now, is the man at the controls. You get two mixes of No Way itself: the original’s a bass-y, throbby, Berlin-y kinda deep/tech groove, topped with a multitracked vocal that sounds like it might be sampled from something old, but if it is I couldn’t tell you what. French producer Julian M supplies the remix, pitching down the vox and stripping things back till we’re in almost minimal territory. On the B, meanwhile, you’ll find two rubs of Where You Go. The original chugs along in atmospheric, cinematic fashion doing the pitched-down vox thing again, while A++ supplies a dark remix from the very techiest end of the tech-house continuum.

To these ears No Way is the stronger track, but it’s a solid (almost) debut from the label all round, and sufficiently in keeping with current trends to ensure it could find a place in plenty of sets.

Out: This week
