Having been born within the confines of Italy, Nick Anthony Simoncino has seemingly always had an ear for creating record after record of top-notch, forward-thinking music. He has graced the rosters of record labels such as Mathematics, Skylax, TLR’s Crème Organization and of course, Ron Morelli’s L.I.E.S. Records where his music has been remixed by one of house music’s earliest ambassadors, Larry Heard A.K.A. Mr. Fingers. Stylistically, Simoncino’s contribution to the musical soundscape offers much in regards to pure, unadulterated sleaze as his synths bubble and glide, providing backbone where it is due. He encompasses a sound that sits snugly in between the legs of electronic music’s respected predecessors, Chicago house and Detroit techno, adopting the light-headed soul of Detroit alongside the hard-hitting weirdness of Chicago.
However, as much as Simoncino’s production style and finesse is worth repeatedly banging on about, it’s his DJing that has caught the eyes of many since he made a name for himself back in 2009. Whether it be his Dekmantel podcast towards the back end of 2016 or his recent fabric promo mix, Nick Anthony Simoncino has been on form as of recent years in terms of his DJing output. If you haven’t already, head on over to his Soundcloud and indulge yourself in a blend of your choice, I can almost guarantee you that it will urge you to go back for seconds.
For today’s Tracks of the Day, we have none other than Simoncino gracing our website for the first time. He brings along with him four obscure techno tracks from the vaults from the likes of Dave Angel, Biosphere and Graphite, get stuck in.
