Renowned for his releases on Riva Starr’s Snatch! Records, Ruben Mandolini’s first solo release of 2013 sees the Italian beatsmith make his label debut on Mark Knight’s Toolroom Records with ‘Aporia’.

In the same, sophisticated manner as previous releases, ‘Aporia’ showcases ambiguous vocal samples and churning bass manoeuvres throughout. In a mixture of fittingly crisp hi-hats and swift drum patterns, it is the Italian producer’s inimitable knack for detail that drives home this simple yet inherently infectious track as one of his best works of late.

Out now on Beatport.

Riva Starr’s distinguished abode for all things Tech House Snatch! Records greet familiar underground advocate and Italian groove master Ruben Mandolini for an infectious new EP. While ‘Slevin’ embraces the rhythmic properties that have excelled Mandolini’s international appeal, title track ‘Forget About It’ drives an artillery of deep bass play into a far heavier set display of eccentric beats and rerunning vocal samples. In a genre that is too often dismissed as back-to-back beat tracks, Mandolini provides a collection of skilfully executed cuts that instil a strong degree of enthusiastic energy for club-rooted Tech House.
