DESCRIPTION
 

Time to welcome another newcomer to Freerange with a brilliant debut that
has already been gaining a lot of interest from early spins. Stefano
Ritteri should be a familiar name to many, having dropped several well-
received releases on key labels such as Pets, Rockets & Ponies and Get
Physical as well as his own monthly Rinse France radio show. A producer
in the old school sense, he has the ability and desire to flip from deep,
emotive and down tempo jams to the most impactful, high energy floor
fillers, all with a deft touch and unique and experimental spin. The
Italian producer, now relocated to London, has a studio chock full of
vintage synths and hardware outboard which keep him inspired and ensure
his output sounds fresher and fatter than most, as can be heard on this
excellent two-tracker entitled A Different Happiness EP.
The title track is a spaced out, percussion-heavy jam which takes a
minimal approach but wins hearts and minds with an ear-worm of a melody
that gets gets you hooked in from the start. Snippets of spoken word add
to the intense atmosphere making this one of those sure-fire, perennial
tracks which can work in a variety of sets and still guaranteed to make an
impact and stand out in the crowd.
Flip over for Pocket Melody, another simple yet effective and inventive
track which sees Stefano letting loose on his synths and coming up with
some warped Zawinul-inspired vibes in the process. The playful melody
snakes around in an improvised way whilst the dubby drums and classic
analogue machine beats ensure everyone stays locked into it’s hypnotic
groove.
Definitely a producer to watch for us and we’re sure Stefano is on track
to continue making some amazing music. We hope you love this as much as
we do!
