ALESSIO RIZZO & ILARIO LAGGETTA – BREAKFAST IN LEBANON (PISTON RECORDINGS)

Italian DJ and producer duo Alessio Rizzo and Ilario Laggetta debut on Piston with the fantastic Breakfast In Lebanon. Alessio got into music from an early age and by 14 years of age he started to DJ and found himself playing at various parties around his hometown. Over the years he has honed his skills to perfection, his sets are engaging and charismatic that convey his passion for music with every beat. This will be his first outing as producer and we are sure that you will not be disappointed with the outcome. Ilario found music early in his life also and in 1988 he stepped into the DJ world and began a magical journey that would take him through various clubs and top spot at various DJ competitions. His sets deliver a cool blend of rhythmic tech house with melodic touches. Another debut producer that shows us the goods.

Breakfast In Lebanon sets off with a fantastic, thumping kickdrum with crispy hats cutting through the low end like a knife. An acid style bass fades in and adds a cool driving groove to the sound with a little help from cool vocals and an iconic ‘woo’ thrown in for good measure. Tight drum arrangements keep the rhythm flowing here as a much deeper bass joins the fun and locks this groove up for the duration. Top notch stuff that will definitely light up the floors.

Alessio goes solo on Distraction and toughens up the vibe with a monster kick and superb spoken vocal that hangs over the sound beautifully. A warm bass creeps in and adds a cool contrast between the crispy hats, echoed claps and the lower frequencies. The vocals definitely dominate this track and give it a great character that will feed into the floors for sure. A full on banging track that will keep the club pumping no doubt.

Alessio is up again on The Start and he delivers another absolute stomper. The pounding kicks on the intro are matched with sharp hats and claps and really get the rhythm flowing nicely. Cool spoken vocals come through and give the groove that real club feel while a deep, probing bass thunders along at the low end. The break sees the bass filter out while keeping a foothold on the sound as that vocal rattles out another phrase. Super tight drums are on offer to keep the dancing feet shuffling and the floors alive, brilliant stuff.
