As the Italian House scene continues to engulf the globe, Fucecchio asset Federico Scavo returns to Hotfingers Music for a much-needed injection of unpretentious House in ‘Ride Like The Wind’.

Blending subtle keys, instrumental samples and the familiar grooves Scavo has continuously perfected, ‘Ride Like The Wind’ may not be his best work to date, but what it lacks in overall energy, it makes up for in solid production values and infectious lead play. Armed with his groove-induced sound, Scavo’s latest release marks a digression from the wobbles and grinding Electro that are doing the rounds and replaces it with the sun kissed groves that are sure to fuel the post-summer season.

As the Italian House scene continues to engulf vast shores and clubs alike, 303 ring leader Alex Kenji is joined by fellow countryman Federico Scavo for a much-needed injection of unpretentious European club fuel. Pitting subtle keys and instrumental samples against the familiar House grooves this duo have continuously perfected, ‘The Funk Is Alive’ certainly isn’t the duos funkiest endeavour to date, but what it lacks in overall energy it makes up for in solid production values and infectious lead play throughout. Having scaled the globe with a sound as distinct as Kenji’s, this collaborative effort beckons a digression from the atypical Progressive House anthems that are doing the rounds and replaces it with the sun kissed groves that are sure to fuel the approaching summer season.

Among the cheesy European assets and immorally mainstream movements of House music, Germany’s Kurd Maverick has kept it as pure and accessible as possible. With his sights set on the distinct grooves that Euro House stronghold 303/Hotfingers have become synonymous with. Where its distant leads drive ‘Happy Days’ into a somewhat ambient start, its solid rhythmic accolades and subtly tuned bass line make for a truly vivacious set-piece for the German producer to shine. Still packing a significantly soulful punch of funky guitar leads and mixed vocal samples, ‘Happy Days’ is a poignant reminder that outside of the oversubscribed realms of Electronic music, thoroughbred House music can still exist.

But with slick Sicilian beatmaster Davide Vario and his Dubaian accomplice Darko De Jan readily on the beat to get 2012 rolling, the magic that has fuelled Ibiza’s second-to-none club scene for years on end makes an early emergence. Soaked with sun kissed horns and insatiable melodic grooves, De Jan and Vario inject some essential summer vibes into the gloomy winter days with this quintessential nod towards the outright favourite season on the global clubbing calendar.

Despite the fact that he’s been around since late 2006, Libero Bovolenta has, until now, been flying a bit under the radar. As he now ups the ante for the disco-influenced sounds of 2 Get, the name of Libex is certain to be flying under the radar nomore with a groove that could make the indulgence of any living soul turn in favour of the Torino-raised talent.
