Italian producer Stefano Fontana is back on his Beatraxx label with five jazz-infused house tracks entitled ‘4 Those Who Likes The Underground Feet #5’.
Colourful sounds, eclectic producer, international profile: this is Stefano Fontana in a few words. Growing up in Milan around the Plastic Club – the main club of the Italian artistic circuit – Stefano has always had a real obsession for that imaginary street halfway between turntablism, funky B-lines, hip hop, old school dance and everything in between. Stefano became one of the most hyped Italian when his Stylophonic alias became world-renowned before he launched his Stefano Fontana project. Having already released on Supernova’s label Lapsus, Paolo Martini’s label Paul’s Boutique, NiCe7’s labels the D-FLOOR Music and a track on Mousse T’s Peppermint Jam, Stefano is now back on his exciting new imprint Beatraxx.
‘Jazz 4 My Brother’ kicks off the EP with a jazzy aesthetic featuring enticing keys, a luscious sax line and organic percussion that pulsates energetically throughout before ‘Fly Fly Fly’ offers up a ravishing house beat that balances harmoniously with the slick melodies and engrossing, retro samples. Next up, ‘Rhapsody’ Of Love’ kicks off the EP with a funky bassline fused delightfully with effervescent drums and soulful vocals that introduce a new layer to Stefano’s vast sound palette whilst ‘Soul 3 Soul’ keeps the energy flowing with high-spirited atmospheres, soothing piano notes and shimmering low-end reverberating underneath. Closing off this vibrant release, ‘Party Going On’ keeps on jacking with bumpy rhythms and sharp grooves.
