Italian house producer Dino Lenny arrives on Ellum Audio with a suitably sparse ode to the weekend in the shape of It's Saturday. Ellum Audio describes Lenny as salubrious which we guess is another way to remark on the London-based producer's prolific approach to making club tracks! You can sense the drop arriving on "It's Saturday" as Lenny draws out some four minutes of stripped back techno before sinking into a sea called atmosphere. Here the titular vocals wash over before Lenny builds the track back up. Lenny employs a similar strategy on B-side track "I Am Changing" which has Maceo Plex written all over it.
It would be fair to refer to Dino Lenny as a "veteran": the Italian producer has been churning out dancefloor hits since the dawn of the '90s. This release sees him join forces with Cajual and Hot Creations regular Doorly for a loving tribute to the joys of club culture. The action centres on a meandering, largely spoken vocal describing a mesmerizing late night dancing experience in "The Magic Room". On the lead version - a tasty re-edit by Lenny and Seth Troxler - this is accompanied by "Lazy" style pianos, and a chunky, disco-tinged house groove. The low-slung guitars and bass are pushed to the fore on Doorly's energy-packed remix, while Luke Solomon doffs a cap to the jazz-flecked boompty sounds of Chicago on his busy rework.
