Album titles can be a tricky thing to get right. That’s why sometimes it’s easy to keep it simple - you know, just stay factual and accurate. That’s exactly what Aldo Vanucci has done with his second album here. ‘Digging for a Living’ is exactly what he does, so what better title could there possibly be.
He’s very good at it in fact. In addition to crate digging for his own tracks he has supplied samples to the likes of Fatboy Slim and as a DJ has held a residency in Hï Ibiza throughout summer 2018 before it was rated best club in the world by the International Nightlife Association. Coincidence? We think not…
Yes, his sophomore album is a widespan collection of soulful and funky cuts from a master in producing good-time beats that are ripe for the dancefloor. And it’s destined to be a crowd pleaser – 12 storming tracks, fusing disco, hip hop, funk, soul, and breaks that showcase all his considerable talents.
The record is not short of a curveball or two either. Funk laden cover versions of Foo Fighters and The Kooks sit comfortably beside his originals which see Aldo teamed up with some of the finest names in the business today.
Vocal contributions come thick and fast - Kylie Auldist (Cookin’ On 3 Burners, The Bamboos, Kungs), international rap dons – ASM and underground hip hop crew QNC all get in on the act with our man Vanucci… Eclectic yet accessible, that is what this album, and indeed Aldo Vanucci is all about...
‘Digging for a Living’ is released today via Jalapeno Records and available on CD and digital formats.
