Italians Do It Better

October 11, 2007


A few years back, I was lucky enough to visit Milano and DJ at a May Day Parade after party (you need to visit Milano on May Day!) but what struck me while I was there was the dominance of Dub & Dancehall, everyone bloody listened to it, which made me glad I had packed all my Soul Jazz comps haha. Saying that though I was staying with a bunch of green smoking anarchist artists.

It’s all change these days obviously with Crookers remixing all and sundry and an album soon come and other producers like 3isaCrowd and Love Supreme are bubbling under. More Italian hype comes in the shape of The Sample Truth, the new digital EP by Nic Sarno, out next month on ESP Records. As a little taster ESP are putting out Work (In The Club) one of the EP tracks for free. Taking a easily recognisable Missy vocal sample and cutting up the guitar riff from Beck’s Loser over a nice bumpy house beat, it’s obvious this would go down well on the dancefloor
