Chiqito is the next in line to make his debut on the famed Hot Creations imprint with his standout four-track EP titled Phantom Of the Opera. A big fan of the label, he fits perfectly into the diverse and celebrated catalogue.
Dance Of The Sugar sets the tone for the EP with solid, tech-house beats, reverberated vocal cuts and a heavy bassline, before a break-down with a familiar melody takes you by surprise. Next up Phantom Of the Opera has a swinging groove and shuffled percussion, with hypnotic vocals that come into full play, making the title of the track fully apparent. Bumpa has more minimal undertones with delicate percussion, yet stays true to Chiqito’s sound with infectious vocal hooks. Last up, Freestyles is a pacey number with an off-kilter groove and is a perfect way to round off the EP.
Chiqito has always been a music addict. In 2012 he released Gangbang on Cuartero’s Sanity Records, which helped propel his name into the limelight. An army of supporters ensued in the form of Jamie Jones, DJ Sneak, Matthias Tanzmann, Maceo Plex, Nic Fanciulli, Andrea Oliva, Carlo Lio, Loco Dice, Cocodrills, Nathan Barato, and many others. Releases soon followed on the likes of Elrow Music, Dirtybird, Snatch!, Brock Wild, Toolroom, Suara, Rawthentic, Stereo Productions, Inmotion Music, and I'M A HOUSE GANGSTER.
