some review :
Deeper EP (Midnight Riot) It seems like an eternity since slow, chugging edits were all the rage. It’s good to see, then, that Mantova-based Massimo Vanoni is still keeping the flame alive. The Italian producer’s style feels like a slightly less loopy take on fellow countryman LTJ, with the emphasis on head-nodding grooves and tactile disco shapes. There’s much to enjoy here, from the pitched-down AOR disco stomp of “Got The Power”, and 12-minute boogie chugger “69”, to the undulating sweetness of “Deeper”, and Italo-influenced, Moroder-ish bob of “Deeper”. Judge Funk remixes the latter track, pitching it up to 112 BPM for additional dancefloor pleasure.
Music in 2015 – 2016 – Many tracks “in style” for Massimo Vanoni that gives precedence to it’s Black mood on the characteristics slow-down & nu-disco-funk. The tracks produced in 2015 is a gripping groove ceiling with more emotional loops and thick and ascent. Contamination collected by the clubs console converge in the creation of new songs that recall an interesting recovery to the new that is beat by the dynamic pace.
