10 tracks you should know this week:
Icarus - Draw The Line

The first (and only) time I heard Lento in the club, I turned to my trusty dance partner, Shazam, and said “This music is insane, I need more.”
Lento Violento, translating to "slow and violent" in English, is an almost relic from the early 2000s Italian hardcore scene. Gigi D'Agostino's 2003 release, Underconstruction 1: Silence E.P., defined the sub-genre, known for its hard-hitting kicks, looping vocal samples, and dark, acid-infused sounds set to a hypnotically slow tempo, typically clocking in under 100 BPM. Despite a brief stint of commercial success, the scene gradually faded by the end of its formative decade. Dedicated fans retreated to niche online music communities, where they’ve sustained some degree of underground interest, seen most notably with Boiler Room's release of Nahshi's Hard Dance 029 mix in 2019.
