Luigi Egitto – Let It Be/Something

January 23, 2016 in Singles

Luigi Egitto Let It Be/Something SP RecordingsA two-tracker here from Italian producer Luigi Egitto, brought to you by Essex label SP Recordings.

On the A, Let It Be is a serviceable lil’ houser that tops contemporary-style shuffling percussion and dark, throbbing bass with a spoken female vocal (“if that must surely come, then let it be”), a woman’s laugh and sung “ooh baby” snips, as well as hand percussion, and synth-work that nods to the classier end of early 90s Italo-house. But while Let It Be is plenty playable, it’s Something that’s floating this reviewer’s boat more, a stripped-back affair with meaty kicks, crisp claps and bass that comes surging out of somewhere just below Hades. Chuck in a nagging two-note keys riff, spangly synth chords and party whoops ’n’ hollers, and you’ve got the perfect eyes-down groover to keep proper house floors moving through the wee small hours.

Angelo Draetta & Luigi Egitto – Sun Goes

December 27, 2015 in Singles

Angelo Draetta & Luigi Egitto Sun Goes SP RecordingsMore sweet fem vox (see Andi Rivera, below) on this single-tracker from Essex label SP Recordings.

Sitting somewhere between deep, soulful and ‘beach’ house, Sun Goes is predicated around langorous synth sweeps, soaring sax, gently tinkling chimes and, of course, that gorgeous (but uncredited) sultry, wistful vocal. It all adds up to something with a vaguely ‘sunset in Ibiza in the 90s’ feel… but that’s by no means a bad thing.

Not much more to tell you, really.

Out: This week (on general release)
