So here is our final release for 2011. Festina Lente "I Don't Want You ep"
Another collection of slick deep house tracks found here, three originals and a pair of remixes supplied by BMM artists Richie J & Rob Clarke.
Festina Lente started to dj and collect vinyl in 1999 and has always been in love with funk, soul, disco classics and house music. He began to play soulful house in bars around his home town in Italy during the summer of 2000. The main influences in that moment for FL were the main house dj's of the house scene at the time including MAW, Kerri Chandler, Joe Claussell, Frankie Knuckles and so on. More recently FL moved made the transition to more deeper sounds but still with the soulful touch. After some years, whilst he was still working as a dj, he found the need for making his music and started to mess around with it. After a few experiments he found himself making deep house music that includes different styles, from very deep sound to funky and so on. Lately whilst he is still making music and collect vinyl he made the move to London. The futre is bright for this talented chap and we at BMM are proud to add him to our family rosta!
His passion for house music started back in 89′ when attending his first 'Yikes' party near to London. He would spend the next seven years travelling all over the UK to attend the best parties, listening to a variety of evolving electronic dance music. He admits that his own sound is 'heavily influenced by the early 90′s deep house scene, in particular Nottingham's DIY collective'.
It wasn't until 2001 that he would first get involved in dj'ing. Starting on a small internet station with a friend (for a laugh) he would often raid the vinyl vault for classics not heard for years. At present he has a popular prime time radio show on London's Pointblank.fm (est1995) First heard Sunday mornings playing anything from northern soul to chill out to old school house and everything inbetween! His current show, 'The Lunchtime Lock-In' has been running since 2006 and can be heard every Friday 12-3pm GMT, regulars are treated to the best in deep house music.
