The Love You Need

Released: 01/12/03 Cat. No. RENX016

Italy?s Luca Ricci makes his Renaissance debut with a stunning piece of driving, tribal house that has already snaffled the Big One award on Tom Stephan?s weekly Kiss show.

Bucking the modern trend, which recently has seemed to dictate a female vocal has to be used as the foil for deep, twisted beats, When is Dark employs a powerful male vocal, which is reminiscent of Teddy Pendergrass, to great effect. It?s a recipe which should, perhaps, not work, yet it is undoubtedly one of the most captivating records you are likely to hear all year, a rare occasion where, in bucking the trend, a brilliant piece of original music has emerged.

The A-Side features the full vocal that has had DJ's and clubbers alike scrambling to find the name of this track. The Flip side sees DJ Vibe delicous mix take things a little deeper.
