Marcello Cassanelli – Sunset Tapes

As the weather sizzles here in the Northeastern United States, the music continues to sizzle all over the world. Today’s treat is from the maestro himself, Marcello Cassenell. This musical master, who holds a Masters degree in jazz from the G.B. Martini Conservatory, and has been applauded with a killer release in Overtour in 2018 is back once again with something hot entitled Sunset Tapes. On this go around, hooked up Black C.S. Franchetto on bass and Antonio Rapa on drums to gives us a killer funky, jazz filled and disco influenced EP. This five track record is definitely a summer banger. We get a treat for our ears in the track “Welcome”, which is early to mid ‘70’s synthy disco bounce. Ripe with keys and a bass line that hits it right on the head, this is the track we didn’t know we were waiting for. Shades of Lonnie Liston Smith, long DJ sets until the sun comes up, and feelings of not wanting the night to ever end come to mind. This for sure is a 12” that will get you moving and not caring if you have to social distance to do it. The influences of disco and house are evident, but the man Marcello takes it in his own direction. Keeping it upbeat for maximum dance floor swing, this record has something for the dance as well as more for a late night chill out session. This is another favorite of the summer (and year), and with no foreseeable DJing throughout the world for a while and a uncertain future of music events, it’s really great to see a musician like Marcello putting out HEAT. Creatives create, and this is some joyful noise to say the least. Listen to the track below, available on Jackie Brown as an EP.
