Italian Francesca Lombardo has been crisscrossing the globe and headlining all its most tasteful clubs and festivals for many years. Her powerful, heartfelt grooves have come on the most influential labels of the day, and her critically acclaimed debut album "Life of Leaf" showed that she can do all sounds and styles from downtempo to pop with equal skills. Her mix of innovation and compelling grooves continues on this latest EP.

The vocals on the opener "Magic Moment" are a poem Francesca's friend Victoria sent to her. She kept them for four years before finding the special inspiration that encouraged her to use them in these writing sessions. They lend the tune an intimate feel and draw you in deep to the elegant house drums and warming synths. It's an uplifting and classy tune with a standout Moog bassline that will lock in the floor.

After the dub version is "Sea", a much more twisted and peak-time techno tune. The synths are spangled over jacked-up drums, with edgy textures and late-night menace all making it a sure-fire winner. This is another tasteful take on techno from Francesca Lombardo.
