Orazio Fantini

Deep Series
DS005-x | 2014-02-19  
The Berlin-based Deep Series imprint returns this February with a four track EP from Orazio
Fantini, backed with a remix from Kindimmer.
Deep Series is a sub-label of Diaphan Music, and is the brainchild of George P. The label has
welcomed the likes of Ekkohaus, Santos Reisak and Sek onto its roster and has continually delivered
raw, organic house music of the highest quality, picking up the support along the way from Sascha
Dive, Julietta and Federico Molinari. Canadian jazz enthusiast Orazio Fantini joins the roster here with
his debut feature release.
The release opens with B.A Nights, a low-slung house cut employing loose, shuffling drums, warbling
Rhodes chords and a smooth, bubbling bass hook. The track slowly blossoms with ethereal pad lines
and setback atmospheric building tension, while a blend of cutting synth stabs further build the
melodic movement.
Next up is The Music, picking up the pace slightly with an insistent energy, Fantini samples a warm
pad line, as the initial driving force while introducing a mixture of piano hits, gritty bass hits and
orchestral shots, all tightly infused melodically to create a profound depth and dynamism. Kindimmer
steps up to the plate next to remix The Music, taking things a darker, more hypnotic direction,
weighty drums run alongside the heavily side-chained originals pad line, the track builds with an
insistent peak-time energy steadily progressing while sax licks, penetrating stabs and vocal snippets
brilliantly meander around the rock-solid groove.
To close the release Fantini offers up Take My Heart, a perfect way to wind down the release.
Veering things into NY house territory with stripped, swinging drums, soulful, emotive vocal lines and
more intelligently crafted melodies in the synthesized elements, fluttering synth chords run alongside
punchy bass stabs, bright one-shots and reversed sweeps. Fantini displays his proficient ability to
create soulful house here once again.
