Eddie Amador, Francesco Ferraro, Coco Street – Magdalena Del Rio (Like A River) – Nu Soul Records
Hot percussive drums, rhythmic cowbell and a catchy vocal from Coco, our new release is an upbeat slab of Latin House with a lot of energy to send the party crew into a frenzy!

Liberty City – If You Really Love Someone – Murk Records
To me this track is a sort of throw back to the pure classic MURK productions. It comes with a driving baseline on top of a straight dirty raw house drum groove. It’s always spiritually uplifting and deeply sexy. I can play this record today as well as 20 years from now! It has recently been exclusively reworked by myself for blanc.
Liberty City - If You Really Love Someone (Francesco Ferraro Remix)
Africanism All Stars by Bob Sinclar pres. Kalimbo – Yellow
Another successful reconstruction from the vaults of World’s African Treasures. This comes with an inspirational energy and outstanding music production and a sincere heartfelt love for mankind.

Noferini & DJ Guy ft. Hilary – Pra Sonhar (Marascia Mix) – Loud Bit
Smooth infectious sambadrome grooves blended effortlessly with an impeccable saxophone melody and a sublime vocal performance by Hilary Costa. Marascia brings his professional production skills to a higher level during on the intro and outro samba solos. A great house record that sets the right mood for a Carnival party.

Latin Project – Lei lo Lai (MAW Mixes) – Electric Monkey
Historical MAW’s Grammy nominee tune, battle horse for the latin- house movement, hypnotic vibes and a great vocal performance and lyrics. I’ve been listening to this production for a while now, picturing myself across the ocean, feeling the salty breeze and the bright blues skies defining the horizon. A combination that gives me the sensation of escaping to the freedom.
Latin Project - Lei Lo Lai (Masters At Work Remix)
Francesco Ferraro – Canto De Medellin – Natura Viva
This work represents the gap between my past and present. My main goal was to delight the entire season, at the same time itʼs very surprising and refreshing because of the use of popular Colombian music vocals mixed with Cumbia elements and Latin rhythms. A worthy reinterpretation with a unique, groovy and characteristic style.
Francesco Ferraro - Canto De Medellín
Phunk Investigation feat. Boy George – Generation Of Love (The Scumfrog Mix) – Miniatures
A solid deep tech track topped up with ‘fisarmonica’ vibes. It’s an interesting blend of hypnotic and psychedelic sounds, the kind of track I could play to close a set, keeping the crowd wanting to never leave. A majestic performance, Boy George at his best!
Phunk Investigation vs Boy George - Generations Of Love (The Scumfrog Remix)
Joeski – El Santo – Maya Recordings
Energetic instrumentation and quality audio sonics here. I love the reversed principle to let the bassline drop initially, and how the groove elements build the track every 8 bars. This release is another example of music with purpose, prayers with spiritual meanings and social impact!
El Santo (Original Mix)
Supernova – Marana (Francesco Ferraro Remix) – Street King
The challenge I encountered to transform a classic piano house track into an irresistible Latin percussion flavoured tech house jam for the terrace!
Maranà (Sllash & Doppe Remix)
Blaze, UDAUFL feat. Ultra Natè – A Wonderful Place – King Street
I am in love with the energy building through the full production, A classic that still find his deserved space on the dance floor. This is my meditation background music, that is a pace setter in the modern clubs.
