German duo Piemont consists of long-time friends Frederic and Chris, the pair first decided to make music
together back in 2007 and, since then, they have gone on to establish themselves in the techno scene with releases on acclaimed labels such as Monaberry, Lapsus Music, Glasgow Underground, Exploited, Definition Music and Toolroom.

Piemont’s sound can best be described as organic techno with a preference for ambient sounds, melodic lushness and abstract electronica.

Their new EP “Caress” will be released on their own imprint Moonless Air on Friday, March 2nd and we’ve got the premiere of the B-side track “Endless Sea” which is a rolling tech-house stomper complete with intricate percussion and eerie vocals.

We’re starting the weekend off with a pretty huge premiere.

Stefano Ritteri was born in Rome but now calls London home and he’s amassed some serious releases during the past couple of years. His brilliant new single “You’re My Lover” is released by class A label Glasgow Underground and has already seen support from Annie Mac (who has chosen track to be included in her most played mix for March), Groove Armada, Maxxi Soundsystem, Huxley, Ben Pearce, Waifs & Strays, Doctor Dru, Jacques Renault, Riva Starr, Claptone and many more. It basically sounds like a classic disco party track meets jacking house and it’s something that relentlessly will set dancefloors ablaze. The remix comes from Danish producer Christian Nielsen who repays Stefano for a remix on his latest single “Do You Mind” with a housed up corker.

If the name of Romanthony doesn’t instantly conjure an association with classic house music, boundless creativity and weirdness, you should revisit his discography for a reminder (currently spanning about 570 releases).

One of the perhaps overlooked classics in his catalogue is 1994’s “The Wanderer”, which started out as a white label vinyl with a vocal track cool enough that it kind of makes Prince sound like a dork in comparison (well, that’s a stretch, but Romanthony does ooze cool out of every pore on this one).

Fortunately, Glasgow native Kevin McKay has updated it while still leaving the aesthetic intact. Working something slightly more modern around the structure of Romanthony’s fantastic vocals, McKay repackages his voice to fit with a more modern set, but without overwhelming or cutting up the track into anything unrecognizably jarring.
