Nasty Mo EP is a selection of two tracks of Rush Hour Raw Chicago-Acid techno from Italian producer Gioele Cantoni, also known as ProOne79.
We start with "Nasty Mo", 303 acid synths combined with 909 elements; Claps, cheery hi hats and those vocal samples that give an old school sound vibe. Here the mix of percussive elements, vocal takes and melodic layers is labyrinthine and intelligent at the same time. Pure and raw, warped and harmonic, ProOne79 succeeded perfectly in the quest to create its own distinctive sound.
"Let There Be" has a rhythm driven by low toms and clever use of open and closed hats, here the acid feel of Chicago explodes after every drop of this track.
Here we have a sexy, groovy and properly crafted two-track release, all under the umbrella of Gioele's signature raw, synth-based sound, highly essential recommended tracks!
We have had the pleasure of interviewing him and this has been the result.
Can you tell us a little about your experience? Where are you from / how did you get into music?
I'm a dj/producer from Sardinia, Italy. My passion for dance music started in the middle of the 90’s, when I began exploring clubs in the north of my home island. A couple of years later I bought my fist pair of turntables and started collecting and mixing vinyls.
How is your sound evolving? What artists and genres do you enjoy mixing right now?
My sound is often raw and powerful, simple but effective. I produce house and techno music with an old school flavour. I love mixing other artists’ tracks that fit in well with my productions, regardless of genres.
How do you feel that your music influences or impacts your listeners?
It makes them dance and that's what I’m looking for!
Which projects are you working on right now? What can you tell us about your last job?
I'm always working on new stuff, cocking some beats on my drum machines, making arrangements to my tracks, editing, etc. My last EP, “Nasty Mo”, is a selection of two peak time Raw Chicago-Acid techno tracks.
Where are you and what have you been doing now?
I'm living on the island with my family. I work for a local newspaper and I produce new music day by day.
Has that sound changed a lot in recent years?
My sound is probably harsher since when the pandemic started.
Do you feel safe now in playing a more experimental sound?
It sounds completely new, this could be the key! However, I still love the old school touch in my tracks.
We all know that the digital revolution has affected sales, but has it affected creativity?
Yes, I think so. Right now everybody with a computer can produce music, people are getting more creative nowadays, this is a good thing in my personal opinion.
Can you tell us what your present and future projects are?
At the moment I’m working on a couple of new house tunes with my mate Alfrenk. In addition, I have brand new original tracks coming out soon on various techno labels.
