From universal adoration right through to Nike TV spots, 17-year-old Finnish spectacle Lenno has proven something of a catch on the European radar. But in celebration of his reaching 3,000 fans and counting on Facebook, the Espoo hopeful drops the extended version of his soundtrack scooping remix for Gracias as a free download.
Rife with feel good vibes and eclectic lead work throughout, Lenno’s adrenaline-fuelled take on the original’s purely urban sound scope proves one of the more successful House remodels of a Hip Hop track for a long time while acting as a firm indicator of the young producers ever-expanding studio dialect. With a huge surge of attention already greeting him for 2012, Lenno’s lazy Disco stylings signal further positive musical manoeuvres ahead for this budding mark on the European House scene.
