Eddie Amador & Francesco Ferraro combine on “Mochico Del Oro”


Eddie Amador & Francesco Ferraro have combined on “Mochico Del Oro” OUT NOW on KLAPHOUSE!

It begins in Los Angeles in 1998. House music veteran Eddie Amador pens the now-famous lyrics (“Not everyone understands house music… It’s a spiritual thing, a body thing, a soul thing…”), and sets them to a hypnotic, pulsating beat, and the seminal dance club anthem “House Music” is born. With his all-time moniker “Mochico” since 2000 ramps ups a limited series of self-released vinyl ranging from Afro House vibes, slamming in some organic beats, deep stabs, soaring synths and a potent Acid rub to bring the breakdown crescendo. 

Despite their success, Eddie always supports and emphasizes his experience with new generations. That’s the right time to talk about this fresh-baked reconstruction titled ”Mochico Del Oro” where beside Eddie, also takes place the talent of rising Italo-American DJ/producer Francesco Ferraro. Based between Florida and South-Italy with his pro-activity and motivation he gained respect and admiration from a big circle of heavyweights like Kerri Chandler, Dennis Ferrer, Todd Terry, Gene Farris, MURK, Supernova to mention some. Moreover achieved several times satisfactory scores all over several digital platforms releasing on most groundbreaking labels on the scene like (Nervous, Glasgow Underground, Launch Entertainment, King Street Sounds, Lapsus Music, KMS, Marshall Jefferson’s Freakin’909 and more).Eddie Amador & Francesco Ferraro

Francesco is a really experienced crate digger, in fact, “the making of” the track came out in such an unexpected way (he says).“The inspiration initially came from an intense listening of Bob Sinclair’s Africanism compilation of 2001, where I discovered the hook coming out from a short skit called “Mochico 3” length 1:30. So after hearing this bare sample, I immediately put my imagination on it and just started to combine the mainline with an afro-dub “thing” I was working on previously and only after 4 hours work I nailed it!.

At the completion, I was so excited but at the same time in subjection to propose the cut to Eddie after many years from the initial release “I been always followed his works especially the ones with Ian Carey at the beginning, to the futuristic Madonna’s Superstar remix one of my favourite. After all, my ego became more confident and I decided to pursue my instinct contacting him, shortly after the same day he immediately loved the track and approve it as an official release. In progress, there is already a follow-up that will take place in future months.”

The release comes out on of the most popular Italian imprint Klaphouse Records and was planned to come out in the period of one of the most important events for electronic music or ADE, which unfortunately for the dark moment we are going through will not take place regularly.But anyway we all agreed and wanted to give continuity to the music and never give up, because music is life for our soul.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
