Italo Tunez is a project started in January 2010 by three Italian guys: Antonio Cangiano, Andrea Cariello and Angelo Ciaravola who now are out with the first single "Our Love" released on the label Italo Rumble Digital Records.

The single consists of 5 versions, all in italodance. The first one is the Original Mix. A pretty basic buildup since it starts right away, no intro, just straight on with a vocal in a fast piano-part which tells you to fasten the seatbelt because it's going to be a trip of power!
It is followed by a little guitar sound that continues to play throughout the track (mostly in the back) until the same main vocal part as in the beginning comes again yet again. Then the guitar comes through again and slowly the volume of the synthesizer chorus is rising from below until it ends up at max volume playing a simple and easy melody. It continues this style until the end, only 2 verses are added with different text, but no details just a straight ahead power version - and that is sometimes all you need.

What you will find next are two versions produced by the guy behind the vocal, Angelo Ciaravola, he made a remix in both a radio and an extended version. These are powerful versions, though the Extended begins a little different. It starts with a nice sound followed by a mix of voice cutting, where after the atmosphere changes shortly to chill-out mode with guitar and piano, but quickly the powerful sound comes back and the vocal starts. The buildup for the synthesizer chorus is one of the best parts in the remix with the powerful bass and the sound that follows it together with the voice cutting. The synthesizer itself is very common and is used by most young Italian italo-producers today. There are many great clean sounds, with nice details going well in harmony with the voice which makes it very melodious.

The 4th track on the single is a remix by GA.SA aka Gaetano DJ & Salvo La Mela. Their version is as powerful as the last two and maybe even more because of the almost "Hands Up"-style synthesizer chorus they used. It has same basic buildup as the original, powerful and simple, but this one starts with some voice cutting followed by a high sound that plays in the background most of the time, else it's just tunz tunz aus die Autobahn.

Last remix is the emotional version made by DJ G, which you might know from his remix of Emozioni Libere – Per Te also from Italo Rumble Digital. A beautiful violin intro almost makes a tear appear in the corner of my eye when the track begins to play. It sounds like water running down the river when the piano starts to play and together with the voice effects it makes you feel like you are floating away to dreamland. Also a matching effect is added to the vocal. A nice extra little detail is a voice with some kind of "mouse"(pitched up) effect that acts as a kind of choir giving this version a little twist. The synthesizer chorus is again the very used one by many young italo-producers and the main melody with few notes used. The vocal is as mentioned by Angelo Ciaravola and it has, like many other italo tracks, been through the effect-machine. It is not the best finish you could imagine also with the English lyrics and pronunciation being a bit difficult to understand, but when you have heard the track a few times you get used to it.

All-in-all it is a fresh italodance track with a catchy melody and some great remixes though a little more variation between the remixes would not hurt.
