It is this relationship with Luciano that brings Gianni to Cadenza, not just as an artist, but now also as a DJ (now on the Aether Artists roster alongside many Cadenza stable mates).
The Modular EP is technically Giannis debut release (save for a track included on Nic Fanciullis Balance 021 mix compilation in 2012). And its a confident and assured debut release on Cadenza. Title track Modular is steady in pace, and hypnotically uplifting in melody, without ever resorting to clichés. Subtle touches to the hi-hats and percussive patterns keep the deep groove locked in whilst the synth work wraps around your head and doesnt shift. A track already road tested many times this year already, we know this cut has the power to lose a few minds whilst keeping the feet firmly moving.
Girls On Acid is less heady, going for a playful loose beat and choppy vocals. Subtle synth sweeps pick up the energy throughout on this simple, yet effective, percussive club cut. Wrapping up the release is Boogie Curls, a skanking and bass shaking track that builds nicely, again without ever over cooking the elements, a great mood piece to sign off with.
