The deep sounds of old are given a revitalised re-rub…
Gianni Amoroso has been freely exploring his deep open sounds on the Italian digital imprint Morning Mood, a notion that seems to now be reveling in its results as this seems to be Amoroso’s finest work to date. He seems to have taken a sound that was strongly associated to the clubbing scene at the turn of the millennium and given it a revitalising touch-up that has produced an empowering piece of music by the name of “Don’t Control Me”. It is layered with continuous faded stabs that give it the deep open vibe that Gianni has been working a lot with, plus jittery vocal cuts that help open the space even wider with some well placed reverb. The art of this track is its simplicity. Amoroso has it key sounds in there and he has worked with them in such a way, engineering subtle changes to bring a slight air of progression, but in reality it goes no-where, which is exactly what you want when a DJ has a combination of sounds like this on the go. This one is taking you, and at 4am knows where!
“You Have Stolen My Sole” is where Gianni maybe going back even further in time with his choice of sounds and still with that magic Amoroso touch of revitalisation. The main synth, sounding like it been brought back from the 90′s, gently rides a low humming bass that set the pace of the tracks, whilst again Amoroso fine use of vocal cut sporadically appear from nowhere and then casual drifting past. The tone feels moderate until that synth starts gradually building to a modest level that provides an overwhelming feeling.
Gianni Amoroso delves into the mysterious workings of deep grooves…
“My Head Is Going To Flow” is the latest release by Gianni Amoroso on Morning Mood Records, a release that delves into that grooving deepness that Gianni Amoroso has been know to create. The title track resonates with its deep humming bass accompanied with ambient efficient sounds beckoning from the background. The occasional vocal cuts do well to emphasise the mysterious deep journey that this piece is projecting.
“Distant Love”, conveys a slightly brighter side of this general deepness, lethargic stabs being the main culprit of this effect. The deep laid back bass, rumbling ever so slightly, accompanies the stabs in creating the easy flowing deep groove embedded into the track, with again, vocal cuts being perfectly worked into the music to amplify the general feel of the track.
Ten of the finest tunes on the scene at the moment…
With so much great music out there Guerilla Sounds decided to put together a quick top ten mix of the finest. The GS Select mix is not just about the 10 most popular underground tunes out there, it’s about the most inspiring and dynamic music there is, whilst demonstrating and supporting some of the futures freshest artists. Not an easy task, but we feel that this June mix does exactly what we have set out to do. Especially as we have manage to incorporate not only new artist on the scene, but also new label standing alongside a couple of the pioneer labels of underground house music.

Gianni Amoroso releases two unique tracks on Morning Mood…
Gianni Amoroso’s Conga Plus EP become new digital imprint, Morning Mood’s third release, in an attempt to demonstrate some fine music.
The title track, Conga Plus, is first on the list and has one of those deep rolling bass lines that just rumbles a smooth rhythm and with the overlaying hits and vocal cuts Gianni Amoroso has really brought out some groove on this one. Things are let loose half way through the track when Gianni introduces a more intensifying synth.
Daily Mistake is the second half of this release and one which is offers a heavy funk side of things. Daily Mistakes introduces itself with a heavy future industrial sound with a sublimely open female vocal. Some open space stabs echoing in the background lead the way into the main bass, which is followed by more fine vocals. But it’s the progy style jittering synth that does the job on this remarkable and diverse masterpiece.
Gianni Amoroso really seems to have harnessed some unique sounds and blending them together to produce two very fresh sounding pieces.
