Listen to Minimono’s new Vibraphone track premiere on Mixmag.
Bridging the gap between the old school and the new, Vibraphone reach out here to Minimono (aka Fabio Della Torre and Ennio Colaci), who represent the vanguard of quality Italian house and techno in the 21st century via their affiliation to Bosconi Records. “Oldest Friend” is a twinkling gem of bumping deep house, while “Questions” takes on a classic Detroit sound with a New Jersey swing. “Some Day” is a tougher beast, at least in the drum department, but there’s plenty of soul in those melodic elements, before “Eleven Days” pings off into broken beat territory with terrific results. For all the classic signifiers in these tracks, there’s an infectious freshness to the Minimono sound that makes it a perfect fit for Vibraphone.
