Youtube Premiere: Riccio – Pretty Eyes

A few months ago, we resurfaced a wondrous, vinyl-only release on Fly By Night Music, from Italian soul-wielding disco wizard Riccio. A year after contributing to their 5th Anniversary Stallions Compilation, he’s returns to Florence imprint, Bosconi Records. The Tuscany label and promoters count San Proper, A Guy Called Gerald, DJ Nature, Mark E and The Revenge as part of their extended family, making Riccio in very good company. Since unearthing Lil Boy, we’ve been pretty besotted with Riccio, so a new release on a familiar label wasn’t a hard sell and we’re delighted to be hosting the Youtube premiere. Much like the FBNM release, Pretty Eyes borders the regions of 70’s disco, hip-hop and detroit house with a playful vocal sample. All the ingredients for a certain detroit legend to take the control on remix duties. Former Slum Village DJ and producer extraordinaire, Andrès, takes the original into deep territory with new, dusty drums and added bass, which you can take a listen to below.

Riccio – Pretty Eyes EP is out now at Juno Records.
