Definitive dance label Play It Say it hits a landmark 50th release with new music from Leonardo Gonnelli & Adne including a remix from Jean Pierre.
Leonardo Gonnelli is a suitably large figure to take care of this big occasion, having risen through the ranks in his native Italy to make it on the world stage. Next to headlining the likes of BPM and Space Miami, he has released on labels like Stereo Productions and Defected and picked up plenty of Beatport hits as well as support from giants like Adam Beyer, Carl Cox and Seth Troxler. Here he links with countryman Adne to great effect.
Opener 'Subbeat' is high class minimal funk that hypnotises from the off. The drums race along in supple and rubbery fashion as deep synths weave in and out and sci-fi sounds and fx add further detail.
Jean Pierre steps up to remix and does so with some darker, filtered vocals taking things in a freakier direction. The drums still hit hard and there is plenty of cosmic energy in the synths as this late night classic rolls on. 'Acidsia' is a paranoid melting pot of unhinged synths, whispered vocals, icy hi hats and compelling drum programming that is sure to be irresistible in the club. A stylish Synthless Mix is more physical and propulsive for when you need to make an even more direct mark.
