Roots Underground continues its travel deep down in the vaults of quality dance music, releasing UNO EP, the debut of hystorical Tuscan dj, producer & MC, Rico Herrera.
Known for his hip hop production for italian and american artists since the early ’90s, and for his participation with the turntables collective ” I Maniaci Dei Dischi”.
On this release he gifts us an unexpected “house” record, along the best tradition of music “made in Chicago/Detroit”.
The opener, Pojama (A1), starts things off with warm and soothing piano chords, interlaced with synth phrases and supported by a broken beat and a boogie bassline.
Datz Koreas (A2) has electric piano samples filtered, in a classic house manner, and played with the MPC. The B side has deep jazzy feelings with Ramsey’s House (B1), born from the collaboration of Rico with musicians @Brothermartino (Flute), Filippo Guerrieri (Electric Piano, Oberheim OB-8) and Paolo “Peewee” Durante (Electric Piano, Clavinet). The closing track is One for Ron (B2) a tribute track to the Chicago living legend Ron Trent, and Herrera with his MPC gives birth to a real dancefloor banger that every Prescription fan will love.
