Dutch DJ/Producer Alessandro Diga is set to open 2018 with the third and final single taken from his stunning ‘Figments Of My Imagination’ debut artist album on Paul Hazendonk’s Manual Music label. Two of the album’s lavish aural delights, are featured here and ‘Najarro’ and ‘Over You’ both display Alessandro’s bold and innovative creativity to perfection. Najarro is smooth, melodic and infectious. Clever use of delay on many elements of this track fuse this together with class.
The EP also features a superb remix of ‘Najarro’ from the masterful French hybrid Techno producer Teho. Taking the journey that focuses on the main synth hook and has a mighty intro that will set any set alight.
Alessandro’s expansive creative palette also includes the clever use of vocal elements in the deeply enthralling ‘Over You’. Although quite minimal, this does not disappoint in any way. One of the best tracks that’s hit my inbox this year so far, I just can’t get enough of this. Deep and emotive sums up this track.
Never one to rest on his creative laurels, Alessandro has already been working on new musical projects to be revealed through 2018. ‘The Void’ is a preview of what is to come from the melodic mind of this young artist, whose music neatly blurs those restrictive genre boundaries like truly great electronic music so often does so well. He undoubtedly has a very exciting musical future ahead of him.
For me, this has been an introduction to an artist who I will be looking out for this year.
