We’re very happy to welcome on this 18th release one of the youngest hot producer of the moment MASSI DL as yes at only 18 years old (!!) he proposes here 3 impressive original tracks with a mix of funky modern techno and a weird part of house…straight to the label profile for sure!We start with A1 Minimal mushrooms which is a brilliant funky minimal techno track where unpredictable structure and incisive dry roll drums combined with a groovy effective bassline give an irresistible jack’in feeling…speed, heady & unexpected… a concentrate of pure energy! Boiling!A2 is the remix from Alexi Delano & Xpansul (plus 8 records) who keeps the housey groovy side of the original and turns it into a monster tech house mix using brilliant melodic arrrangement and a massive basseline…wow !We continue with the b side on the flip the B1 Spa del sa as typical Massi style takes minimum sounds and fx to give here an original sweet syncopated melodic which is definitely enough to contaminate the dancefloor and last but not least the B2 Barbietola e spinas is simply a real killer funky techno track for us as 1st time we listened to it the bassline melody was enough to think the great potential of this track…just ask to Troy Pierce, Mike Shannon, Paco Osuna…what more :don’t miss it!that’s it!

FRANKIE018 in the media

BPM Mag (USA): “Hard to believe that this slammin’ technophile is only 18 years old! Weird to say the least, this installation takes shuffled rhythms from all angles and applies them to every instrument. The structure in unpredictable and irresistibly jacking with distorted synths, rolling bass loops and ring-modulated hits. Remix work includes Alexi Delano and Xpandsul. (Praxis) ”

Carola Pisaturo (Titbit,Claque: “another lovely release from frankie! both sides are solid and functional, genuinely beautiful music, will play spa del sa! massi dl is surely one the most promising talent around, FORZA NAPOLI!” “review - “...a nonconformist and original work, which can’t be missed in any dj suitcase!”. Fris. ”

Daniel (lomidHighLTD): “Massi DL is the new kid on the block. On this ep he brings some great clubby tracks that will work the floor nicely. ”

Danilo Vigorito(Intelligence,O: “good ep! i like all the tracks, i will play A1 and A2 for sure. these tracks are the nearest ones to my style!”

Davide Squillace (Minisketch,R: “booth tracks are nice,cutting edge editing and incisive cuts. i'll definitly be playing the rmx. ”

Gaetano Parisio(southsoul): “1UP is a dope ep 4 my sets...definetly in my box...all 4 track are 100% pure and fat groove 4 all the dancefloors...AAA+" ”

Geoffroy Mugwump (Suicide/Hi-P: “cool grooves from this newcomer...the alexi delano & expansul works a treat too.”

Groove Magazin (GER): “Drei oldschoolige Tracks vom achtzehnjährigen Massi DL aus Neapel: die Stücke bestehen aus diversen Loops und haben starke Dynamikschwankungen, die auf dem Floor eine extreme Wirkungen haben können. Schon im Kopfhörer spürt man den Dancefloor vibrieren. Es ist eine unbiedere, unberechenbare Musik, die in ihrer freudigen Zerrissenheit an Happy Hardcore-Tracks erinnert, aber doch so funktional ist, dass sie in Magdas Sets passen. Alexi Delano & Xpansul können diesem Überraschungshit in ihrem Remix von „Minimal Mushrooms“ nichts hinzufügen”

Karotte: “minimal mushrooms ist der absolute burner. schon wieder eine hammer pladde auf frankie!!! big big hit!!! in meinen februar charts.”

Magda (Minus): “Dope ! play A1 minimal mushroom the most awesome track!... video - Minimal mushrooms track played by Magda @ Amore Rome, december 31st 2006”

Marc Ashken (Leftroom): “All round solid ep, spa del sa will get the most plays from me, great little groover, best work yet from massi dl”

Mark-Henning: “what a fantastic ep! my favourites are B1 and B2 - i will play these a lot. massi has got a very promising future ahead of him! 9/10”

Matt Tolfrey (Leftroom,Crossto: “Massi is one of my tips for the future, and he doesn’t disappoint here. Minimal Mushroooms original and remix does it for me. You will be hearing a lot more from this kid…”

Mike Shannon (Cynosure): “Great EP man! I'm really into B2 though... I guess you took the save the best for last approach cause that track is what it's all about! Can't wait to play the hell out of this! Keep'em coming!”

Paco Osuna (Mindshake rec.: “really good EP will play it sure!...definitely into the B2 track the most &... chart it !”

Ralph Kollmann (Mobilee): “There is a section in my record bag where the new frankie from Massi DL fits perfectly! I like A1 and also the remix of AlexiDelano&Xpansul but i think my favourite is the groovy "SpaDelSa"!”

Rino Cerrone (Rilis Rec): “just received! congrats! amazing..! thanx ;)”

Shinedoe (Intacto): “Full support! Track B2”

Skoozbot (M-nus, Mindshake): “From the insanity of Minimal Mushrooms all the way to my favorite Barbabietola e Spinas, this is a super solid release from Massi DL, one of the big names to watch for in 2007!”

Someone Else (Foundsound recor: “Massi DL is a new young guy to watch out for. His stripped-down minimal shit is super-heady and perfect for the dance floor. And even a faint hint of the old Naples techno style creeps its way through the tracks from time to time. ”

Yossi Yamoyal (Sushitech): “Solid EP like all the other releases on this label, I feel the remix Alexi and Xpansul did the most, will play it for sure!”
