Obviously, we have a bit of a soft spot for blogs that evolve into record labels, even more so when there's vinyl involved. Not because vinyl is inherently better than digital, but simply because it takes a set of fairly big balls to put out records these days. James, the man in charge over at Sccucci Manucci, definately seems to know what he's doing though. For Sccucci's maiden voyage he lined up 4 choice tracks by 4 up and coming producers in the midtempo/beatdown/deephouse/nudisco realm.
Our very own Francis Inferno Orchestra kicks things off with the massive Horizon Beat, a bassheavy, druggy and chuggy reconstruction of Cloud One's classic Disco Juice. Jonno and Tommo, two new names for me, deliver the goods with Scare The Night, a filtered out disco pianofest. On the flip Scott Featherstone & Tino up the tempo a bit with Circles, a pleasant enough percussive deephouser. It's Ramboiage's Pretty Baby that is my pick of the bunch though. Clocking in at around 109 BPM and featuring heavy low slung drums, it doesn't really do much, yet the groove locks you in and won't let go. Ace stuff and congrats to the Scucci crew on their firstborn!
