Young Marco was my #1. Probably the (double) album I spent more time listening to than any other and it sent me down a discogs rabbit hole in search of similar sounding artists.

also you should totally start an italian dream house thread

there's a Young Marco Boiler Room set from a year or two ago where he plays half the stuff on the compilation while Dutch ravers enjoy the sunshine and it just looks like the most fun imaginable. Do we have a general "Italo House c or d?" style thread?

so let's have a thread for Italian house that's sometimes dreamy from the early 90s

here's a chiming vocal number which sounds like reclining in the sun: SLP ft Janette Dawkins - "Gonna Lose My Mind"

Get this one out of the way early, often regard this as my favourite house track ever: Don Carlos - Alone

Love Quartet - Kiss Me (Don't Be Afraid) - this is kinda silly with its breathy sex purrs and love-as-salvation lyrics but those chords are deep and dreamy for sure

(slightly pitched up in this video but it sounds better for it)

Omniverse - Venere - bells like sirens, one restless chord and a diva straining to be heard

xp to saer - that Bermuda Triangle one was reissued fairly recently and was a bit of a gateway for me getting into this stuff

That Love Quartet record is top drawer - Ricky Montanari released some new stuff on 320KB last year too, sounding a bit like Fresh and Low!

Norrin Radd - Sea Of Quiet - there's a strong early Warp, bleepy vibe to this one

Jump St Man - Because (89 Remix) - not technically Italian or early 90s but parked in the same garage

There are a many of these records on the house and techno bobbins of the past thread, including one with a rap from Silvio Berlusconi's nephew

Is Last Rhythm too obvious? For me, time does not dilute its beauty

Will try to check in on this thread. I don't know enough to even approach a novice, but the Strings of Love's "Nothing Has Been Proved" cover was one of my favourite singles of the '90s. (That counts, right? I looked up the producers and it appears to.)

Double Dealers feat Opi Williams - My Love

love the jazzy piano melody on this, its delicate sophistication a foil to the brashly growled vocals

What current music do you listen to?

Just Italian Rave really. It's got a lot of guts to it.

A lot of this stuff is too tasteful for me. I prefer the cheesier, hands-in-the-air stuff. This one is dreamy and just slightly embarassing. Really bold melody and angelic (you'll see) vocals.
