My Friend Dario and Hell Yeah label boss Marco continue to develop their renewed friendship with another magical coming together. Many years after they used to make music together, they are now older, wiser, and frankly, better at what they do. And so it is here with Dario continuing to explore his unique electronics, all inspired by the Sicilian breeze.

Dario is very involved with Catania's underground music scene: he has soaked it up and helped to shape it for many years and always with a warm Mediterranean current gently flowing through his work. His last EP, Calamari Fritti in late 2018, was a real gem, and this new one follows up in style.

Opener Prime Luci is for early evening drinks on a coastal terrace as the water glistens and sun turns red, while Domenica is for early evening swaying, with deep disco drums and Casio chords enriching your soul. Danoy is a cosmic trip with melodic droplets and shimmering lead synths that melts you over and over again, and Nonna is an ambient excursion with a suggestion of menace in the creeping bass synths that keep you on edge. Closer "Monti Rossi Sunday Vibes" ends with slow and lumpy drums awash with wispy pads and cosmic suggestions.

You might not have been to Sicily before, but after listening to this EP you sure will feel like you have.
