1st release from the artist formerly known as Solo

Remixes for dance music luminaries such as Crookers, Underworld, Depeche Mode and Wiley; a residency at Fabric; releases on labels including Defected, Dirtybird and Lapsus; mastermind behind the Congaloid label imprint; promoter of one of London’s coolest underground monthly warehouse parties; with a list of enviable achievements such as this, coupled with his inimitable production skills, it’s not hard to see why Stefano Ritteri (formerly known as Solo) is one of the hottest emerging talents in London’s underground house scene right now.

His latest cut exemplifies the Rome born maestro’s technical mastery, born out of raw talent and a superlative enthusiasm for all strains of music; an intelligent and gradual percussive ascension which teases its way up to the main refrain with a delicate yet driving bassline, which in turn is softened by the melodic and breeze-like synths and subtly sexy vocals; the perpetual and seductive series of build ups and satisfying drops that simply leave you wanting more. This fresh and original cut undoubtedly proves Ritteri has definitely mastered ‘The Rules Of Control’.

‘The Rules Of Control’ is out now on Defected.
