Hannah Wants makes a blistering return to Solardo’s Sola imprint this July alongside renowned Italian artist Leonardo Gonnelli. Featuring an emphatic pairing of underground cuts, their collaborative ‘To The What’ EP checks all the boxes to deliver a sophisticatedly subterranean dancefloor offering.
Kicking off the release, the title cut ‘To The What’ comes in hot with a flurry of rolling drums and crisp percussive flair whilst gritty synths and glitchy fills bubble up throughout the mix. A track with an undeniably underground feel, its weighty body and piercing melodies carve out a perfect choice for packed peak-time dancefloors and potent sound systems alike. ‘Shake Em Down’ comes next, packing an almighty punch from the outset. Pounding kick drums and shuffling hat grooves join a chorus of quirky analogue flavours and mammoth sub-bass whilst a hypnotic vocal topline keeps you in a trance from end to end.
