Mirko Di Florio plants his feet onto Hot Creations' sister label Emerald City with new single "Electric Brain", alongside two dynamic remixes from label boss Jamie Jones. With a focus on more crossover releases, Emerald City adds another scintillating record to its family.
"I made this track straight after a night on the terrace at Paradise," Di Florio shares. "Jamie played so much good music I was brimming with inspiration to create something to be played at these parties. That night was so crazy and made such an impression on me that I named the tune "Electric Brain"."
"Electric Brain", apt to its name, is a shuffling tech-house tune that emanates groove; a weighty bassline and classic rave synths outline the track, highlighting Di Florio's aptitude in fusing sonic tendencies for an infectious result. Seeping casual confidence, the track indeed transports us to hedonistic days at DC-10—where Paradise reigns. The first of Jamie Jones' "Brain" remix sees the famed producer inject his trademark house groove, bringing forward the modulated vocal hook and infusing a lighter piano melody for a satisfying climax of light synth stabs and slightly distorted 303s. The final rework showcases a more minimal looping bass that still maintains its hooks—hi-hats, stabs and wonky electronics coming together to construct a show-stopping dancefloor number.
Initially making his name as a resident of the Do Not Sleep Ibiza party and collaborating with Lee Foss on Repopulate Mars, Mirko Di Florio has become a staple name of the international house scene. Impressive releases such as his Mesmerized EP on Green Velvet's Relief label and "Long Time" on Armada hit many DJ charts and were played by the likes of Fisher, Diplo, Marco Carola and Jamie Jones. Touring across the world and amassing many fans in the process, he also joined MK's Area 10 team this year.
