Three years after Uno EP, Rico Herrera returns on Roots Underground launching a new series of 7″ releases called Excursions, produced by Herrera himself with special collaborations with other artists from the Italian and international scene.
On this first volume we find the wonderful voice of Jane Hamilton, Scottish singer already known for some of her works on Sonar Kollektiv and on the legendary Theo Parrish’ Sound Signature, and multi-instrumentalist Filippo Guerrieri, already present on the previous Uno ep, on keyboards. The result of this trio of wonders is Favourite Dream, elegant Soulful House track characterized by hard-hitting Latin percussion, deep jazz chords, as well as the sparkling voice of Hamilton, which give the track a special brilliance and harmony as well as a sure grip on the most sophisticated dancefloors.
I Love my Pork Pie Hat is the title of the incredible jazz-flavored track that completes this first volume of the series where we find another old friend of R.U., Lorenzo Morresi, who brings his guitar on this vibrant Rico’s beat, full of percussion, for a result that will warm the hearts of all lovers of the most authentic and genuine New York Garage sound. Excursions with this first volume promises to be a cult series, which will surely make all collectors and and all the real “House Heads” out there lick their lips.
