Stefano Noferini and Leonardo Gonnelli are two of the most influential artists in the current house and techno scene. Their many years of experience and contribution to the dance music industry has to be honoured and, therefore, we are very excited to announce their VIVA MUSiC debut with this expertly produced EP.

The Italian pair have both enjoyed illustrious careers, releasing numerous quality records subsequently winning a variety of awards. Noferini’s creation of Deeperfect Records has played a huge impact in both careers, as Gonnelli’s, ‘Whaa’ and ‘She Likes It’, have arguably been his best tracks.

Many of the world’s best DJs have shown support to Noferini and Gonnelli, as a result of numerous successful releases on big-name labels. The latter has produced on Defected, Knee Deep In Sound, Get Physical and Material whereas Noferini has mostly released his best tracks on his own imprint, Deeperfect.

The quality in this three-track EP exemplifies the countless years of production that both these artists possess and there is no reason why the title track in Awake can’t reach Beatport’s top ten.

New remixes on Knee Deep In Sound

Athea returns to Hot Since 82’s Knee Deep In Sound imprint for a brand new EP backed with remixes from Leonardo Gonnelli and Gorge.

With previous support from Sasha, Marco Carola and Steve Lawler, James Dutton aka Athea ends another successful summer in Ibiza with the release of ‘Capoeira’.

‘Capoeira’ kicks off the EP in typical Knee Deep In Sound fashion with driving rhythms dressed in swells of white noise that slip and slide before ‘Into The Deep’ leaves its mark with a thunderous low end steeped in bubbling energy.

Up next is Italian heavyweight Leonardo Gonnelli who turns in two remixes, the first of which focuses on smooth atmospherics before a ‘909 Vision Remix’ provides crunching drum arrangements for those peak time highs. Finishing off the EP is 8bit records artist Gorge who’s exhilarating remix draws from deep and tech house flavours to sign off the ‘Capoeira’ EP in style.

Leonardo Gonnelli #TONADA on Seth Troxler’s #PlayItSayIt label !

Seth Troxler offers up the next installment in a lauded series of 12’s on his no nonsense, club-focused imprint Play It Say It. With previous releases coming from Butch, The Mekanism and Steve Lawler, next in line is a new addition to the roster: Leonardo Gonnelli. Based in Florence, Leonardo Gonnelli has recently release on Defected and has also on Dirtybird, Snatch Off, Suara and Deeperfect. Throughout, the Italian native has consistently pedalled a sound heavily indebted to 90’s Acid House and Detroit Techno and it’s this in conjunction with a sound understanding of how to work a dancefloor that aligns him perfectly with the ethos of Play It Say It. ‘Tonada’ is a rich, hypnotic dance floor track propelled by clever sequencing that has it twisting and turning throughout. Arresting Spanish vocal passages punctuate progress while a circling sequence tumbles through the mix. The Dub version then omits the vocals in favour of distant whispers and caps off another solid addition to the Play It Say It series.

#Abisinia is OUT NOW, Leonardo Gonnelli’s second collaboration along with Chus&Ceballos after their succesfull previous single Soledad!

The imminent arrival of Chus & Ceballos debut album called ‘Nómadas’ in September 2015 brings a serie of previous singles gems, like the one we are presenting to you right now Abisinia feat. GiGi, second collaboration along with Italian producer Leonardo Gonnelli after their succesfull previous single Soledad. Abisinia takes its cues from the African region where GiGi was born, Ethiopia peninsula and is the basis of the musical journey imprinted in the forthcoming album of Chus & Ceballos. Hypnotic synth sequences and soaring ethnic vocals that transport your mind into this musical trip. Yet it retains a clear modern sensibility, the quality of this production wont let you indifferent and will inject a nomadic mode in your veins. Chus & Ceballos have reached his musical maturity, they are back to their roots and Nomadas is the result of many years exploring new sounds, blending and carrying them all on their baggage. Abisinia includes a master piece cut from one of the most outstanding Spanish talents, UNER, DJ and producer but also an excelent musician which imprints its full potential in a superbly sensory and emotional work.
