SSOH, the underground house imprint set up and run by Paris’ favourite champion, Claude Monnet, introduces a brand new name – Francesco Tarantini.
Perfectly representing the underground house scene at present, Francesco expertly blends driving, penetrating beats with melodic influences and a solid harmonization that’s sewn into the core fabric of his music.

Francesco releases his first triple single ‘Saturday Night / Sunday Morning / Coming From Chicago‘, a welcome addition to the same musical camp that previously saw the likes of Dimitri From Paris and DJ Gregory release killer cuts to rapturous, global applause.

A progressive concept runs throughout this triple-header – first up, Saturday Night encapsulates that all important peak time rush. Funky, low slung bass, a disco rhythm soaked in percussion and a glorious, feel-good vocal sample add further funky weight to this dancefloor killer, lighting up dancefloor’s from Rome to Paris, and London to Montpellier and beyond.

Naturally, next up comes ‘Sunday Morning’, a slick progression and a poignant reminder of those early hours ventures.

Melding the mechanized sounds of digital hardware, and adding real late-night magic, the track pushes live, organic sounding percussion and jazzed up saxophone hooks, mixed with a solidly confident 4-4 beat, dripping in soul and nodding graciously to the warmth and hypnotic influence of Detroit techno.

Elegant, strong and sophisticated, it conjures up the vibe of the early hours after party, beautifully representing its sexiness, pace and unexpected charms.

Bringing back the funk for a final round is ‘Coming From Chicago’ – in tune with the blistering sound of the Chicago house scene, dipped with funky-esque elements and a cool, fresh timbre, its new school twist is reinforced and revitalized by the sounds of the old school, able to give it the elements to fuel the floor of any house, techno or disco club – big or small.
