The trio Gigi D'Agostino, DJ Maxwell and Luca Noise have been quite busy lately, first a third album from Luca Noise in February, a second album DJ Maxwell same month and soon to come a new album from Gigi. Already a fourth album of Luca Martire better known as Luca Noise, is out. Wygo the mixes 01 is the name of the album, perhaps indicating a new series with more volumes to come, I hope so at least.

The album consists of a single unmixed CD with 17 songs generally a little longer than previous Luca Noise albums, with a duration between 3 and 5 minutes, much appreciated.

Involved in this album are artists such as producer and singer P.s.S. (Paolo Schiesaro) and singer Lagoon (Alessio Venturi). Lagoon only appears in one song, however, as the second singer in the new version of Vedo l'amore, in which also Paolo Schiesaro sings.
Paolo Schiesaro is also the mastermind behind the songs Vedo l'amore Luca NoiseMix 011, Crazeology Luca Noise Mix, Spin and Antistatic P.s.S. dubstep mix.

Crazeology is one of the best tracks on the album. It is a lento violento song with a short sample from head out of 2008 by Super Marco May feat. Mad Bob, and a lead typical for Gigi's, Luca's, and Maxwell's songs.
The track reminds a bit of Siento as it only has one vocal phrase with a strong male voice repeating the same sample over and over.

The new version of Vedo l'amore reminds a lot of the old version, but still sees some improvement making it a better track marginally. The song Centrifuga is not particularly interesting. It has a strong kick similar to those used in hardstyle and includes a BPM acceleration followed by a break before restarting the kick giving a nice effect for clubs, but not so much for listening. The last song performed by Paolo on this album is Antistatic P.s.S. dubstep mix, which, as you probably already figured, has a lot of distinctive dubstep elements, something not seen in the Lento Violento genre before. The result of this "experiment" is interesting rather than good, although I think it would be difficult to dance to.

The rest of the songs are from Luca Noise. One of the most wanted songs on this album, at least for me, was In To The Bam Luca Noise Mix 011. I was not disappointed. It is much more melodic than previous versions from Gigi's hand, as in this case integrating autotune to change the intonation of the almost-famous phrase into the bam, bam, what the bam, bam, bam creating alternative melodies making a very successful result.
The track used in the promotional video at youtube is Danse de la Fee-Dragee which utilizes the theme from famous Russian composer Tchaikovsky's ballet The Nutcracker. The extended version on the CD is obviously a lot more interesting than the piece in the promotional video.

The vocals from the track Locomotive utilize a spectacular piano melody, which brings up great memories.
Testard, Tribbu fuoco intorno the mix, and Crazy (this one with a little faster beat) are three strong lento violento songs, 3 great tracks if you are into lento.

To keep the review in an eatable size I will not go too much into detail with the remaining, not yet mentioned, tracks. All the tracks of the album are generally of very high production quality and will be highly valued by fans of the genre.
I can fully recommend this album to anyone who appreciates the Lento Violento sound. The album is professionally produced and both mastering, sound and vocal quality is great. Luca Noise and Paolo have found their own slot between Maxwell and Gigi D'Agostino with a distinct style, although the sound’s reminiscence of Gigi is clearly heard throughout the album. A little more ingenuity and a little less reuse of elements would have made this album a masterpiece resulting in the 6-star rating, the current 5-star rating should be enough to satisfy any fan, I should think.

Thank you very much. Wink

But you must also give thanks to the CFE, which has helped me, because my English is not very good.

Thanks! Smile

I can understand the 5-star rating if you really love Lento Violento, but if it's not your thing stay far far away from this CD Wink

Sure, I just wanted to point out that even though the review of the CD is great, it might not be for everyone.

Reading the review,though, it is implied that you need to like lento in order to truly enjoy this CD. :smallface:

Great review!!! I have to disagree on the high rating, though. Although Vedo L'Amore is magical the rest of the tracks are like... meh'. Comparing it to the two other Luca Noise albums I've listened to constantly the past few monts (Potenza Adeguata, which is my FAAVORITE & Way Of Life vol. 2) and this just doesn't measure up to their level of awesomeness.

I don't know, I like lento but I still didn't enjoy it x'')

I totally agree, I also think the rating is too high, that's why I said that I think you should be a fan of Luca Noise and Lento to understand the rating

Hi Dano!
It is possible that when giving the rating, I was provably excited because I am a big fan of Lento and especially Luca Noise.
For me, the best release is Pontenza Adeguata too.
