The main and central figure behind the meteoric rise of the Italian Record label Double Cheese Records DJ/Producer Federico Luyo and his team of reputable and up and coming DJs/Producers have been one of the compelling stories to unfold in the House scene over the past couple of years.
The label’s discography thus far bears proof of what is possible to accomplish, even in the recent rapidly morphing and changing times for House music.
The label boasts of most reputable heavy hitters in the industry i.e. Aki Bergen, DJ Spen, Vincent Kwok and compliments this quite well with a fresh up-and-ring talent in the likes of Daniel Jaze, Tony Loreto, Mark Di Meo, Mauritzio, Anna Cavazos, DJ Ermi, Pepesoup, Tiago AZ, Vittorio Santorelli, Marquito & Pane, Wendy Lewis, King David, BMP, and more.
Not only being at the helm of one of the most exciting Soulful/Funky House labels to emerge from Italy to date; DJ Luyo combustible nature behind the decks has earned him a burgeoning reputation as an A list DJ.
He has become one of the most talked about about soulful/funky House DJ.
Double Cheese Record – Discography:
Deep Character & Mad Boss feat Joe Flame – ‘My Friend’; Joe Flame’s preachy, inspirational vocals give resonance to the production work of Deep Character aka DaSoul and Fabry Diglio & Mad Boss with three different versions.
The special guests Doc Link and Fiso Da Costa serve a Classic House and the Afro tinged vibes respectively.
Luyo – Hungry For Love Pt.2 (Incl. Deep Djoe & Pedro Mazz, Vittorio Santorelli Remix). The success of the original package was so strong it needed to be divided into two parts.
Up until this day the Original and Lenny Fontana mixes of ‘Hungry For Love’ are still causing a stir.
In part 2, Portuguese duo Deep Djoe & Pedro Mazz mixes conquer at first listen with their funky rooted chords and organ riffs. Italian up-and-rising Vittorio Santorelli on the other hand gets darker with a bumpy deeper version.
“One More Night” is a soulful joint with vocals that have a penchant to linger in your mind for hours.
Vittorio Santorelli again makes a feature on the label packing more heat than the previous release. On remix duty on this instalment Portuguese duo Angello and Tiago AZ brew a cheeky groove that is enough to whizz the dance floor straight into paradise.
Label boss Luyo joins forces with talented DJ Ermi for a ‘sex in space new disco’ mix.
The prolific production team of Woods & Luyo make a great follow up of “Thief in the Night” released in 2012, making another feast for the ear with their trademark melodic sexy funky vibe titled – In the Heat (Of the Night).
The EP has been by far for me one of my personal favourites. The original mix gets a very lusciously melodious treatment by Deep House maestro Aki Bergen in his Dub Mix.
UK upcoming talent Mangesto on the other hand also spreads a smooth, warm and tantalisingly melodious Afro feel, with a saxophone segment that’s so hypnotic it leaves you yearning for more.
Label honcho Luyo’s interpretation is laden with a deeply rooted rendition on his Bonfire remix.
