Seems like the recipie for the perfect sunshine tune. Take, what is arguable Madonna’s most chipper tune, Holiday, and give it to Italian Fico Disco pioneers Fare Soldi. right now we can’t think of a more perfect match to produce something that will, without fail, put a smile on your face.
Of course they kept the little synth Funk riff, why wouldn’t you? But Fare Soldi have teamed that up with a big bouncy bassline and a sweetly shuffling beat. Upbeat arpeggios and starlight keys spread out over a pair of duelling basslines (one bass,one synth) to serve up something think and funky and genuinely upbeat. Add a bit of Madge over to top and you’ve got something instantly recognisable to your ears and irresistible to your feet.

If you haven’t already picked up Gigamesh’s new self-titled EP rest assured it comes highly recommended for putting some groove in your weekend.
In celebration of the recent release Italy’s madcap Disco heads Fare Soldi have dropped their reMix of ‘So Intense’ that features on this weeks full reMix package release. The track is classic Fare Soldi, only the most powerful and in-your-face Italo influenced Disco-House, with a sense of fun. When the bassline kicks in you can’t help but move, and grin, to this.
Italian production team Fare Soldi have turned their attention on Toro Y Moi, turning the Chillwave into Funkwave.
Our favourite crazy Disco duo give ‘New Beat’ a thorough Italo influenced Disco going over. The track is cowbell crazy and features June’s official funkiest bassline. Be prepared to be put in a good mood!
Justin Faust had just dropped a selection of reMixes from his ‘Sloppy Chic’ EP of last year.
The standout for me is Super Mal’s heavy Nu-Disco workout of ‘Your Life’. What more can you want from a track like this? Killer bassline, rapid fire synths that shine like a beacon in the darkness all over the place. This reMix has got a groove that is just going to slay dancefloors worldwide. Italians Fare Soldi also turn in a killer rhythmic Italo/Disco mix of the title track. It’s a low-down dirty and grimy Disco track that gets inside your head!
Italian masters of all things crazy Italo Fare Soldi have got their funky hands on Duran Duran’s ‘Rio’. This can only end well (or badly, depending on your position).
Spotlighting the tune’s mental bassline over a 909 beat whist dropping in bits of the song over the top is the path to true Italo enlightenment. Fare Soldi always manage to keep thing fresh and he they do a spot-on job or working the retro and the contemporary into a dancefloor slaying package.
The sun is shining and it may be April but we can pretend it’s summer, no? To help us in our delusion Italian Italo masters Fare Soldi are about to drop a new EP.
Titled ‘Houstria’, the EP’s lead track ‘Pompa O Non Pompa’ ask the incredibly important question “to pump, or not to pump” and answers it with, well, pump! It’s full on Italo Disco and defiantly not to be missed if you’re parting in this fine weather. Also on the EP is ‘Stambulia’ with more of an Electro-House vibe to it but remaining just as ‘out there’ in Fare Soldi’s own particular style.
