Happy New Year everyone! 2015 was a great year and we hope all of you took a well deserved break over the holidays. Instead of taking a break for ourselves we decided to hit the ground running and ring in the new year with a brand new mix from the one and only Simone Vescovo aka Simoncino!
One of our favourite albums from 2015 was Simoncino's 'Amazon Atlantis' on Creme Organization. His distinctive sound is purely analogue and the first time we heard Amazon Atlantis it felt more like an unearthed gem from the past rather than a new release. Simone achieves this by using a large collection of vintage equipment which he constantly switches in and out of his home studio in Perugia in order to keep his sound fresh and evolving. Another quality we've become huge fans of in Simone is his highly productive work ethic. Within three years he's released three superb full length albums and since he first debuted on Jamal Moss's Mathematics recordings he's released over twenty highly regarded EP's for a variety of internationally respected labels including Creme Organization, Finale Sessions, L.I.E.S, Syncrophone and Quintessentials. Many of his productions have caught the attention of some of the best producers in the game including Larry Heard, Chez Damier, Virgo Four, Gene Hunt, Ron Trent, Dream 2 Science who all went on to remix his music. Simone has also worked with Legowelt, Robert Owens, Mark Rogers, Julian Jonah, Boyd Jarvis, Vincent Floyd to name a few. If this wasn't already pretty impressive, he still finds the time to manage his own imprints called. HotMix Records and Hot Island Records.
For the 20th edition of the Phonica Mix Series, Simoncino has prepared an hour long blend of late 80's and early 90's obscure techno and deep house tracks. We also took the liberty to ask him a few questions down below to help you get to know him better. Enjoy!
