Breath – Tommy Capretto (reviewed by Dave Franklin)

Tommy Capretto is certainly a well-known name in House and Techno circles and his music has found its way outside the dedicated clubland community via some of the biggest labels and music companies in the land. Breath, however, sees him return with a slight sonic change of direction. Not too much, the track is still grounded in the sounds of deep electro goodness but vocally things are more chilled, more ethereal and rather than the hard and euphoric beats that you would usually find as the engine room of his creations, again, there is something more relaxed at work.

It’s still a perfect dance-floor filler, it is still woven from energy and infectiousness, but it sits somewhere between the midnight, high point as club builds its momentum and the more chilled sounds of the early hours slowdown. It is also a great calling card for his latest e.p. Tyson’s Corner, a collection of three great tunes and an alternative mix of each, as well as an intimate and reflective intro to set the scene.

Breath is the best of both worlds. Fans of Capretto’s style will find much to love here, people looking for something new from him will find that this new, more spacious sound suits him perfectly.
