Mike Simonetti, militant crate-digger and label boss with broad tastes (you tell us how similar are the catalogues of Troubleman Unlimited and Italians Do It Better, apart from the fact that Glass Candy and Chromatics are present on both labels, albeit doing very different things), has been infected with the production virus. After almost two decades dedicated to releasing, spinning or making edits of other people’s records, Simonetti has decided to start making his own music. His debut will arrive in April in the form of an EP. The record will be called “ Capricorn Rising EP” and will contain seven tracks. Judging from “ Third Of The Storms” (with vocal collaboration of Sam Sparro) and some other tunes we have been able to hear (several tracks have been appearing on his SoundCloud page, only to disappear again shortly after), Simonetti makes a kind of slow and atmospheric pop-disco. Before his own record arrives, we can still enjoy another one of his remixes, this time for New Yorkers Midnight Magic.
