Usually we talk about italian djs and producers. So why have we dedicated this post to Joey Negro?
The reason is very simple, the master of british house music decided to release a compilation about italian house music scene of the late 80s and the early 90s.
We think this is a very important operation to revalue a genre that was never rightly emphasized for its influence.
Thank you David!
Before you start listening the preview we want to leave you with the thought of David in regard.
“The late 80s were undoubtedly a golden era for dance music. A time which saw the birth of many genres and sub genres – from acid house to hardcore to Balearic – and of course Italo house. If you ask Jo Raver to name an Italo house track, they’d probably come back with Blackbox, Jinny, Fiddlefatti or one of many big piano tune. At the same time there was another equally distinctive sound coming out of Italy- a warmer, deeper, more emotional style which didn’t yield any commercial hits. The sound was more jazzy and soulful with syncopated percussion, dreamy pads and, though piano was often used, it wasn’t in the obviously programmed, big breakdown style which became a cliché of the Italo house genre. This more underground side of Italo was closer to the original American house sound- but still retained a very European flavour.
In common with other Z compilations which have featured Britfunk and GoGo, this album was an important release for me. Important because I love a lot of the records, many of which have been largely forgotten about, but also because there really was a unique sound coming out of Italy, spread across many labels and involving numerous producers. As a result, it has never really been fully showcased like this before. I’m glad this album exists for other people to discover or re-discover the deeper side of Italo house“

This month To Rack & Ruin vol. 6 will soon released and the 12″ will includes 4 edits by DJ ROCCA featuring N2B.
On the side A we find “Get Up”, an edit of a classic reggae song, where disco boogie meets reggae and dub; the second track is called “Weird Safari”, and as the name suggest, we could define it a weird travel through spatial highways sided on techno territories.
On the side B, DJ Rocca featuring N2B to edit two songs by two famous italian singers.
“Dubby Pino” is a balearic disco soul piece with a jazzy flavour. And last but not least (is our favourite one!) “Mr Rossi’s Backpain” an explosive disco funk track ready to burn all the dancefloors.
On 21 may a new compilation signed “Danny Was A Drag King” will comes out.
It’s called “A Night Out With Danny vol. 2” and contains the best latest production released by Danny Was A Drag King and mixed by DJ Rocca.

If there is something to be said about the italian producers, is that we don’t hear Techno music from their hands.
Is not the case of DISCOFORGIA that, with this bomb track with KinderWhoOore, leads us to discover this kind of music with a sensual voice and a beautiful bassline.
We are very glad to host this kind of artists on our pages because, when we think about techno, it’s just as easy to think about USA or Berlin. Perhaps we were wrong…and we are happy about this!
