Flashmob alias Alessandro Magani is somewhat of the man of the moment when it comes to peaktime rollers that make the difference on the floor. The mighty Italian delivers a masterful two-piece assault on his Hot Creations debut, entitled The Lone Brazilian. The EP opens with the title track, fronting a funk-laden bassline and percussive, driving drums. Tribalistic male and female chants break the track up, adding depth to the unfolding journey. The track is a bit of a grower, but if you give it a try, it will satisfy you via its reactions. On the flip, ‘Lower Level’ supplies a deeper trip. A tight, assertive drum track counterparts a short, wandering bassline to form a settled, rolling feel. This is another winner from the busy man and of course for the Hot Creations family.
