My Son’s Smile EP
Its been four years since label co-founder Pablo Valentino became a daddy, and almost as old is the idea of him releasing a record on our imprint. So what makes more sense than to dedicate this record to Hugo-João, his son? On “My Son’s Smile” we can hear a recording of Hugo-João’s laughter over a mellow, summery house track that has been a big favorite of Danilo over the years. With a little help from Lyon producer Patchworks, who played bass on the track, Valentino pulls off one of his most sophisticated productions yet.
GE-OLOGY, legendary Hip Hop and House producer from New York, flips it into a more of a peaktime thing, replacing the Fender Rhodes from the original with layers of thick synthesizer chords and a very vibrant, musical vibe reminiscent of his earlier release on Sound Signature. “Atlantic’s Calling” is one of those signature, late night House tracks that Pablo Valentino has been championing both as a producer and Dj throughout the years.
