Nasty Mo EP is a selection of two tracks of Rush Hour Raw Chicago-Acid techno from Italian producer Gioele Cantoni, also known as ProOne79.
We start with «Nasty Mo», 303 acid synths combined with 909 elements; Claps, cheery hi hats and those vocal samples that give an old school sound vibe. Here the mix of percussive elements, vocal takes and melodic layers is labyrinthine and intelligent at the same time. Pure and raw, warped and harmonic, ProOne79 succeeded perfectly in the quest to create its own distinctive sound.
«Let There Be» has a rhythm driven by low toms and clever use of open and closed hats, here the acid feel of Chicago explodes after every drop of this track.
Here we have a sexy, groovy and properly crafted two-track release, all under the umbrella of Gioele’s signature raw, synth-based sound, highly essential recommended tracks!
We have had the pleasure of interviewing him and this has been the result
- Hi there! Where can we find you right now?
Hi! I live with my family in Sardinia, my home island. I work for a local newspaper and I produce music more or less every day.
- When did the idea of starting a project start taking shape? Has it always been something you wanted to do?
The idea of starting the ProOne79 project came up to my mind in 2005, but the first release under my artist name was in 2018. However, I have always been attracted by electronic music, synthesizers and drum machines. I bought my fist synth in the year 2000.
- How would you define the sound of your latest work? What is the concept behind?
The sound of the “Nasty Mo EP” is sharp and crispy. It’s the sound I like.
The track “Nasty Mo” is dedicated to the modified version of the 303.
- What artists are you interested in these days?
None in particular. I’m just interested in good, well produced music, that’s it.
- How do you manage to combine such different genres? How do you manage to give them unity and harmony? What do they have in common for you?
I combine genres probably because I don’t care too much about them. I start building on the first thing that gets my interest, a bassline, an acid pattern, a vocal sample, a synth sound or a percussion.
- How would you define your sound?
Raw and powerful!
- Can you tell us something about your current or future projects?
I’m working on some new house and techno tunes. Besides, I have two/three brand new EPs out within the end of the 2022 and other stuff coming out in 2023. Stay tuned!
