I'm a fan of melodic music, and I really love the Italian sound of '94-'95 that was tagged Mediterranean Progressive.

It had a fresh, new sound. Kinda halfway between progressive house and trance.

The Panic Mouse tracks here, as well as Meravillia, show little of this.

I guess they'd appeal to minimal techno / tech house fans. They just bore me.

So yeah, for me it's all about Giallone. It's a bloody long track, and it takes ages to kick in. Hey, you've got plenty of time to beatmix.

Once it does kick it, my god. What a track. A deep, menacing bassline. A prodding, insistent refrain. Nice, sharp percussion. And then comes the beautiful melody. Pure Mediterranean Progressive!

It's such an obscure style. How many people say "Oh yeah, that's totally Mediterranean Progressive"?

But once you hear it, you'll get it. Soaked in darkness, but always with beauty.

First class production skills from Gigi too.

Massive respect.
