Hailing from Italy but now based in London, Pagano is back on Toolroom Trax bringing a cut of tech house. His latest release on the label imprint, ‘Hold Tight’, is in a similar vein to his previous Trax releases ‘Latin Tales’ and ‘Naxos’, but with a sharper edge.
The bass heavy record has some deep house and tech vibes that work for the imprint label. The single note acid hits throb repeatedly whilst the two-chord piano hook builds the tension, never quite resolving and aiming to leave you wanting more.
Although he’s a club DJ at heart, Pagano’s productions have been receiving support from Carl Cox, Adam Beyer and Danny Tenaglia to Nicole Moudaber, Roger Sanchez, Tensnake and Mark Knight. He has been making waves in the scene, releasing records on Tronic, 1605, Nervous, Deeperfect, Unity, Ministry Of Sound and as part of Toolroom’s ‘House Party’ Series.
It’s out today.
