It is with great excitement and with much anticipation that we present to you the first release to be taken from Luca Lozano's forthcoming debut album: "Life in Black & White". The label boss has definitely crafted a fresh and exciting sound as Luca tailors an album that is part house, part hip hop, part soul and part techno. He neatly intertwines these with ease, style and originality; the first results of which can be heard in ‘Need Nothing’. What is set to be Luca's fourth release on Klasse is undoubtedly his most considered, intricate and interesting work to date and when it comes backed by remixes from Portico Quartet and Sacha Robotti there is no doubt that what you have here is a release that merits its place in the bags of many tastemaker DJs.
"Need Nothing" is a slow building club track with a heart melting vocal that builds and bubbles into a crescendo of superb sonics and stellar sounds. It begins with a luscious warm pad that undulates beneath a neat trip hop loop before a drugged up synth stab washes over it; neatly encapsulating the lot into a hook which yearns with emotion and creativity. The track steadily builds with a thumping 4/4 kick and deep hollow low end until the amazing vocal amalgamates all the sounds in the stunning breakdown, and a drop that will be rocking dancefloors over the coming months. A brilliant and timeless dancefloor record for the heart, mind and feet.
Lending their deft hand at remixing "Need Nothing" is Portico Quartet’s Keir Vine. Their unique take on trip hop and electronica has won the band a legion of followers in recent times, particularly with the release of their third studio album earlier this year. With "Need Nothing" band member Kier Vine takes the remix into a new and exciting and unique direction, that instantly has that Portico sound. He make full use of the vocal sample, chopping it up into labyrinthine morsels and lay down a fat chunky synth beneath bringing the track into new and exciting pastures. The track builds steadily into a crescendo before the surprise of a beautiful new synth line brings the track to a close.
Last and by no means least, Sacha Robotti steps up and steps in with his trade mark style and cutting edge bass jacking approach. Also hailing from the Klasse Recordings camp, Sacha lays down a straight up 4x4beat before enticingly bringing in the track's irrefutable vocal at which point a killer bass line is drafted in to great effect. This remix is undoubtedly one for the frenzied dance floors and brilliantly showcases Sacha's superb skills behind the mixing desks as well as his ability to turn any track into a club monster.
With this first foray into "Life in Black & White", Lozano announces himself as a key name to look out for in the future as his refreshingly original sound is guaranteed to win him fans across the globe so keep your eyes peeled and your ears to the ground on this gentleman with a penchant for big bass lines and bicycles!
