Veteran Italian DJ/producers Alex Vanni and Tony Barbato draw influence from the hallowed sounds of Chicago and Detroit. They started working together in 2005 under the Mono moniker, and they’ve had much success. The twosome’s acclaimed Flowers EP issued that same year on Rewind Records was played by legends including John Digweed, Alex Neri and appeared on Steve Lawler’s Lights Out 2 compilation. In 2015, Vanni and Barbara formed Klondique as an outlet for deeper electronic excursions, and they have gone on to produce choice tracks for Stereo Productions and MoodMusic. The pair make another bold musical statement as Klondique on their upcoming Light & Dark EP (Favoritizm), a two-track release featuring warm melodies, atmospheric pads and quixotic basslines. We’re extremely pleased to world premiere “Backtrack,” an intoxicating track from the release out August 30 on Traxsource and everywhere else on September 13.
