Review: London tech-house hero Seb Zito has been affiliated with local outfit Fuse, who are responsible for the vast majority of his releases thus far, while finding time to appear for Vatos Locos, Rawax, his own Seven Dials and now Seth Troxler's Play It Say It. As you've come to expect from Zito: "On It" is another hypnotic, bass driven and swing-fuelled work out, that supports a 'delectable' vocal performance by a yet unknown singer. On the remix is good mate and Fuse London head honcho Enzo Siragusa, who strips things back on his dubbed-out rendition that's perfect for one of their notorious afterhours parties.
Review: UK tech house hero Seb Zito appears outside of his usual stables such as FUSE London, Seven Dials or F&Z for this fresh thumper on Josh Butler's Origins, following up some equally impressive work on Play It Say It, Edible, and Vatos Locos. Up first is "Skipin" a tight, boompty swing-fuelled roller that is aimed squarely at main room dance floors, whilst the early rave influenced "Breakin" (like its name suggests) utilises fierce breaks, booming sub-bass and hypnotic melodies. Lastly, Leeds duo Audiojack bring on their trademark Gruuv sound with their bangin' peak time remix.
Review: London minimal pusher Seb Zito is back; he's proven to be a label mainstay these days on Enzo Siragusa's Fuse London imprint but these grooves aren't as reduced and afterhours leaning as usual which makes his new direction a welcome change. He serves up some fierce and jacking pumping deep house groove with "Holywell" featuring some thumping 909 energy, moody pads and all round boompty goodness included.
We Need Love (Robert James & Jack Michael remix) - (6:41) 134 BPM
Review: FUSE London resident Seb Zito has been on the cusp of a big breakthrough for some time, and this (virtual) double A-side affair sounds like it could be the release that seals his star status. "4 Ever" is a sweaty and bombastic affair where echoing old school diva vocal samples rise above a bold, addictive bassline and restless, all-action drums, while "We Need Love" peppers a UK garage style bassline and swinging drums with turn-of-the-'90s style bleeps and more hazy, rave-era style vocal samples. Richy Ahmed's rework of "4 Ever" is notable for its' speed garage style drums and droning, elongated sub-bass part, while Robert James and Jack Michael's revision of "We Need Love" is an even chunkier and bolder trip into speed garage territory.
Review: Fresh off a great release recently on Seth Troxler's Play It Say It, Fuse London stalwart Seb Zito is back again - this time for the always reliable Edible imprint run by none othe than Eats Everything. The Twenty.2 EP features more swing than you can shake an MPC at -rolling and funtional tech house jams that you've come to know and love the man for. From "Slap Dash" with its druggy and wobbly bassline that's the perfect sound of an East London warehouse party after midnight, through to the very UK style bounce of "Bit Of Kip" and the soulful and bittersweet mood lighting of "Haphazard" being perfrct for all those afterhours solitary dancers.
Review: Seb Zito is undoubtedly a producer on the rise. There was a bit of hype surrounding the first two releases on his Seven Dials imprint, so expect this return to FUSE London to simply fly off. It helps, of course, that the two included tracks are all heavy hitters. Arguably the best of the lot is "Take No One", a slamming tech-house jack-track whose immense power is largely derived from a stabbing but driving analogue bassline. Then "So Good To Me" is impressively dreamy, spacey and warm with genuine rhythmic swing.
I Like It (Daniele Temperilli remix) - (5:39) 125 BPM

UK TINGZZZZ (Nick Beringer remix) - (6:39) 125 BPM
Review: It appears the UK production circuit is going garage crazy as yet another high quality UKG release hits out shelves, this time coming from the groovy sounds of Seb Zito via Seven Dials. We begin with 'UK TINGZZZZ' which is an adventure into spacious groovy rhythms and blissfully mixed chord progressions. From here we delve into the soulful arrangement of 'I Like It' which takes stunning vocal samples to the blender in classic garage stylings. On remix duty, Daniele Temperilli and Nick Beringer step forward, both bringing tasteful reworks of the original creations.
Review: As per usual, the UK's Toolroom imprint has put together the definitive summer collection when it comes to tech-house and anything minimal. As you can see - and hear - there are 67 tracks on here, all from the very best and most coveted talent in the scene; Mark Knight features prominently, of course, alongside established house entities like Erick Morillo, Format: B, Sascha Funke, Nic Fanciulli, and many others. But, don't stop there, as there is plenty of new talent to discover in artists like SecondCity, GotSome, Marcellus Wallace, ANOTR, and many more. There are three continuous mixes available, also, one for each summer setting. This is BIG!
