And the Black Loops phenomenon continues Fresh from a whole slew of killer releases this year on the likes of Happiness Therapy, Neovinyl, Madhouse and Smile & Stay High, the Berlin-based Italian returns to Pets with this almighty four-piece that runs his entire groove gamut.
The long-awaited follow-up to his evergreen For The Lovers EP in 2017, once again he not only tick every box but tickle every inch of your music-addicted soul.

Keep A Secret is just beautiful deepness with shades of Europe and the West Coast. Somewhere between Ian Pooley and Hipp-E & Halo in a state of perpetual sunset.
Last but not least, we hit Born In The 80s. Dont be fooled by the title, this aint no nostalgic throwback; its another timeless slab of deep house heaven where the era is referenced beautifully in the gentle, dreamy but insistent melody that folds and pleats so majestically over the top, its one of those tunes that really does make you forget where you are and what era youre in.
