Young Marco mines deep into the 90s era Italian house underground and strikes absolute gold… Part 2
At the tail end of the 1980s, a new take on deep house began to emerge from Italian studios. ‘Dream house’ drew inspiration from key U.S deep house records of the period – the spacey melodiousness of Larry Heard’s productions, and the rich jazziness of tracks originating in New Jersey in particular – but sounded distinctly different. Its’ ‘head-in-the-clouds’ feel – all rich chords, tactile basslines, fluid piano lines and starry electronics – made ‘dream house’ a uniquely Italian proposition.
Welcome To Paradiso celebrates one of the most evocative and imaginative musical styles of electronic music’s golden era. Kick off your shoes, turn your gaze skywards, and immerse yourself in the music.
