The Young Marco-helmed label is serving up a limited edition sampler boasting two seriously sought-after cuts. Neither appeared on any of the previous Welcome To Paradise compilations! On side A you’ll find Ray-Rracing Sauna by Franco F, AKA Interactive Test label co-founder Franco Faisini. The track – a typically tactile, melodious and huggable affair rich in bounding Italo-house drums, life-affirming piano solos and evocative ambient chords – was initially tucked away on the B-side of the producer’s sole solo 12”, 1991’s Simulation Lab. Here, it is deservedly placed centre stage for the very first time. Over on the flip, there’s a chance to savour the alternate Ambient Mix of Marika Lenny’s in-demand 1990 Italo-house anthem Beat Summer. Typical of many Italian “Ambient House” tracks of the period – think driving drums wrapped in breezy, celebratory and sun-kissed instrumentation more often found in period “chill-out” records – it’s a gloriously rushing fusion of rolling organ riffs, Nu Groove style synth solos and chords capable of awakening even the stoniest of hearts.
