Something is happening in Italy. There is a cutting-edge wave of music streaming forth that has the country poised to become the next supreme land of dance music exports. Seemingly leading the pack of Italy’s rising stars is Uto Karem, who in just a short period of time has produced hit after hit with forward thinking dance tracks that are fast becoming staples for DJs everywhere.

With a clever use of mallets and percussive elements, the track unexpectedly shifts pitch throughout, while the quirky samples and micro-edits drive the grooves throughout the duration of this auditory masterpiece.Black Jack is a nutty little number with a perfect square like rhythm pattern which creates a marching like swing. It’s the darker cut on this release, but still retains a playful vibe, consistent with
