Premiere: Watch Massimo Di Lena’s ‘Hardlife’ Video

Massimo Di Lena’s forthcoming release comes accompanied by a throwback rave video. Set to drop mid-March.

The Italian DJ and producer is to release the 4-track ‘Hardlife EP’ on his co-run Early Sounds imprint, a long overdue follow up to 2011’s impressive ‘Early Sounds Collective’ EP alongside labelmates Leskin and Rio Padice.

EAS002 comes on a much less refined tip, deviating from the classic deeper house sounds of the label’s first release and entering tough, rolling house/techno crossover territory. The EP’s title track is the pick of the bunch, an analogue techno brute that shows no mercy, and comes complete with a suitably dark and ecstatic video. Warehouse vibes and facial gymnastics are the order of the day here. Keep an ear out for his next release, ‘You Better Hear’, also scheduled to drop in March via Trus’Me‘s Prime Numbers label.
