Review: Lorenzo Bartoletti – Smokey Job EP

Italian producer Lorenzo Bartoletti has cropped up on a series of esteemed releases over the years, with the likes of Natural Rhythm, Trapez and VIVa all playing host to his inimitable and emerging talents. His debut outing for his own Alfa Romero imprint, however, might just be his best yet, as he really brings his A-game to the table courtesy of the exceptional strands of the Smokey Job EP.

The title-number gets us underway, and it’s a stunning bassline-led track that keeps our attention perked from the first beat to the last. Undoubtedly catchy but still given enough space to breathe thanks to its half-way-point vocal, it slides, shimmies and impresses with all the hallmarks of a producer at the top of his game.

On the remix front comes Cadenza staple, Reboot. The jovial German injects the original with a mound of drums. His interpretation doesn’t reference the rave era quite like its bigger brother, although it too makes quite an impression thanks to its more restrained manipulation of the bassline and a stripped-back, hypnotic vibe. Brimming with rich energy from the get-go, this one is sure to make a serious impression on numerous dance floors this winter.
