Nic Fanciulli’s Saved imprint marks 15 years of quality music with a fresh compilation featuring Italbros, Denney, Franky Rizardo and more
Saved 15 represents a journey from Afro House through to upfront Tech House, starting with the mellow and mood enhancing sounds of ‘Nic Fanciulli ‘Virgo’ and Themba ‘Kenshō’ to the psychedelic tinged progressive sounds of Franky Rizardo ‘Air’
Joseph Edmund works up a lather with the clever edits and dirty acid of ‘Parental Guidance’ which warms up nicely for the chunky Techno influenced by ‘Bump’ Mark Fanciulli. Carlo Lio works the disco loops for a goodtimes jacker on ‘Gave U’ which precedes the pounding drums, soulful vox and tough, techy shots of Mar-T’s ‘Keep On Movin’
It’s time to get locked into the twisted, trippy grooves of Buick Project ‘Chancer’ before slowing it down and amping up the energy for Black Circle’s ‘Strangers’
Simone Liberali’s’ ‘Out There’ makes for a great minimal warmer that grows and grows, perfect for peaking the crowd. Gel Abril’s heads down, bleepy tech house/techno slammer ‘Entra’ is perfect for switching gears and taking things to the next level.
Anthony Attalla’s ‘Solar’ is a timeless funky tech house roller with all the elements from the busy drums to the continuos build up of synths and hooky vocal. Ross Evans takes us to ‘Birdland’ with a quirky jazz influenced stomper. Denney & James Dexter get dark and deep into techno regions with ‘C’mon’
The final quarter of this tasty comp steers into peak time Tech House territory with upfront bangers like Andrew Meller’s ‘Swag’, Groovebox’s Hip Hopy ‘Bruh’, the Latin style drum driven ‘Tamale’ by ItaloBros and the carnival style ‘Free Soul’ by Carloh. So in summary, team Saved have put together a diverse and excellent VA, one that you need!
