Spiller will probably be a name many of you will be familiar with, the Italian is well-known for his collaboration with Sophie Ellis-bextor and their track ‘Groovejet’ – you’re almost certain to find it on any Ibiza Chillout CD. But there’s so much more to this Italian disco merchant.
His latest release is something quite different; two new tracks and selection of remixes. If we were to pigeon-hole it we’d say Ozio having a fisty-cuffs with the Fare Soldi boys over who can have the last baguette.
The title is a mispelled tribute to the old school house classic by Mike Delgado, and a reference to Spiller’s hometown Venice; once a glorious city, now a colony of tourists and… pigeons! The “B-side” of this release is “El Baile Mario”, an explosion of hysterical cuts and bangin’ beats.
The release has picked up some impressive support from a range of DJ’s as diverse as Boy Noise, Cassian and Human Life. It’s getting another release with a slew of new remixes from Dominique Torti, Louis La Roche, Leopold Gregori, 2 Guys in Venice, Gli Sportivi.
But wait it gets better. They are giving away the Dominique Torti remix for free. He is famous for all the cuts and edits on Dimitri From Paris’s productions in the 90s and for the official remix of Daft Punk’s “Voyager”.
And there’s also a momumental DJ mix from the Italian and a amazing video which were promised is completely clean footage – not a special effect in sight.
