Fausto Messina - Amor Lleno De Esperanza

Fausto Messina is, we're assured, a hot name on the Italian house scene, thanks to his Better Day and Kisses From Venice parties in Milan (good job that's not confusing eh?). He's had stuff out on various labels (Wir, Big City Beats, International Freakshow, Suara) before and here he comes to Solomun's Diynamic with this four-track EP.

So much for re-typing stuff from the hype sheet, then… is it any good? Well, yes it is or I wouldn't be writing about it on here! The title cut is a solid enough chugging houser, not a world-beater but playable, certainly. Boungaville is a bit tuffer/techier, but not too much so, and has an eastern/Arabic kinda flava. And then finally you get Tomelas Frias, which comes in original and Swing Version mixes. The former has energy in spades and a little vintage jazz flava that makes me think of Parisian street cafes; the latter isn't that dissimilar but ups the Classic-esque boompty-boomp factor even higher.

If all goes according to plan, I should be getting the Mixcloud thing off the ground again next weekend (there were some technical problems re: the recording equipment you see, which is why it fell at the first hurdle despite some great feedback), so you should hear Tomelas Frias then, hopefully… watch this space!

Out: Tomorrow (Aug 23)

About: Think I've told you as much as I know, but you can find Diynamic online here.

**UPDATE: This did indeed go on the second Mixcloud show, scroll up for the link
