Adesso Sampler #5

Junior Jack’s Adesso label drops the #5 Sampler.

Massimo Conte ‘Can You See’

Hailing from Viareggio, Massimo Conte is an accomplished producer and DJ who has held several key residencies over the last 15 years in top clubs around Italy. He often plays long so he can dig deep into his collection, which covers many shades of house and tech and everything in between. As a producer, he knows how to lay down a killer groove and plenty of catchy hooks and has done so on other labels like LW Recordings and Ocean Trax. Following up on his recent collaboration ‘Goodbye’ alongside label boss Junior Jack, he returns to Adesso Music for ‘Can You See’. The vibrant ‘Can You See’ is a feel-good house cut with classic vocals that send shivers down your spine. Vamping chords bring energy and emotion as the warm drums roll on, and smart fills add extra drama as the track builds to the dancefloor-bothering drop.

Veednem ‘Maji’

Veednem has been involved in the scene for 20 years under several different monikers. He brings a mix of indie and melodic styles to his take on techno and progressive and has had tracks climb high in the Top 100 on Beatport. After donning his Veednem alias in 2019, the DJ & producer has made production debuts for the likes of Voyeur and LW Recordings, and now he makes his first outing on Junior Jack’s Adesso Music with ‘Maji’. ‘Maji’ is a hot and steamy number with Latin percussion and fiery female vocals. The weighty drums have a tribal edge, locking dancers in for a dramatic ride as the all-encompassing synths bring ever more intensity to the floor.

AndThen ‘Work It’

Having already released a string of EPs this year on WyldCard, Nervous Records and Adesso Music, AndThen continues to cultivate an ever-growing list of supporters. His ear for percussively engaging grooves stylised with tribal elements has garnered plays from some of scene’s biggest DJs, including Jamie Jones, Paco Osuna and Blondish. This winning combination for dancefloor weapons continues to be evident on AndThen’s latest EP, ‘Work It’. ‘Work It’ features a rolling bongo groove riding a subby bassline. Dubbed-out vocal cuts bounce around alongside jungle atmospherics, creating that AndThen signature tribal undertone. This is another signature AndThen release designed to send the dancefloor wild.

SUNANA ‘The Savannah Road’

London-based duo SUNANA are seasoned veterans of the global dance scene, receiving regular support from the world’s top DJs, including David Guetta, Don Diablo and KSHMR. Their impressive discography boasts releases on Sony Music and Black Lizard, while their prowess behind the decks has led to them performing on some of the world’s biggest stages including Glastonbury and Wembley. Known for their vibrant style, SUNANA’s productions combine vocals, live instrumentation and an array of cultural influences to create uplifting, powerful music. This style is on full display in ‘The Savannah Road’, an evolving techno track with mystical atmospherics. Cinematic vocal chanting and flute melodies play off each other, taking the listener on a journey, with the driving kick and bass combination ensuring everyone keeps moving. Live timbres and colourful cultural influences are blended together superbly, resulting in a deep, introspective techno cut sure to enrapture the dancefloor.
