“This mixtape reflects what I have been influenced during the past months, and not only. I also selected some fragments of minimal/tech tunes that represented my early years of producing, and even some of these classics they can easily merge with the actual house flavor, this feeling gave me a sweet pleasure. I really hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed record it for you all, as I did in touch with mother nature in front a speechless Italian panorama. Stay Strong – “Music: On – World: OFF!” – Franceso Ferraro
