The hype sheet cites the Detroit techno of Derrick May et al and the house music of Defected as key influences for Rizzuto, but it's definitely the influence of the latter that's more evident here. Not that this is in any way a retro outing, you understand: instead, the two tracks here – I Can't Go On itself and Moonlight – are textbook examples of the more tech-y end of the contemporary tech-house spectrum. I'd suggest there's hints of that East European techno sound, too.
As such, they're perhaps a little TOO techy for yours truly to get majorly over-excited about… but, being as percussive as they are, they'd make useful tools in a set for sure. And if harder, more techno-fied tech-house is your bag you should definitely check this.
