“Disco never died, it just went underground, had a baby, and named it house.” Someone who’d start their bio with a statement like that can hardly be a bad person, can they? And they’re definitely in good company here at HUGO Tracks. Italian DJ and Producer Scuola Furano from Gorizia interprets the roots of dancemusic in his own digitally coated way and the results are usually pretty uplifting and danceable. Check out “Danceteria” which features a great vocal performance by Fiorious right here and get into the groove!
Fun fact: Spitzer are brothers Matthieu and Damien from Lyon, who named their band after Al Pacino’s favorite cocktail in ‘Donnie Brasco’ (The Spritzer). They’ve just released their solid debut LP The Call on France’s much acclaimed InFiné imprint and as an antepast we’ve picked the savory “Too Hard To Breathe” featuring Kid A. Though it has its source in the french cuisine, it possesses a slight nordic touch and sounds a bit like Trentemøller having Björk over for dinner…. Delish!
Stylish and sexy are two attributes that come to mind while listening to Axel Boman’s Remix on the “First Sparkle” EP of Cécile & Refleksie. That’s hardly surprising, since we’re dealing with two attractive Milanese boys flanked by a pretty bloke from Stockholm. Together, they’ve cooked up quite a jam, which on the one hand is rather easy to decipher for people on the dancefloor, yet it impresses with it’s subtly complex production. Stream the track here and tell all your friends about it!
It’s far from euphemistic to call the œuvre of UK-producers Andy Meecham and Dean Meredith legendary. Considering the large number of great releases these guys have collected under their belt ever since the late nineties, it’s no surprise they’d come correct on their newest twelve inch. It’s called D.R.O.M.P (Don’t Rain On My Parade) and flaunts that NYC eighties vibe that made so many clubbers fall in love with the Lips over the years. Talk about a potential club hit…

RYFN is a duo from Barcelona and their music makes one suspect that they a: have been to more than one club in their lives where electronic music was played and b: probably have more than one Depeche Mode record sitting on their shelves. Doesn’t sound too unappealing, does it? We thought so! Curious? Check out their track “29s” right here, which has been on heavy rotation on our players ever since we first heard it!
