On their third release of 2016, Frank & Tony streak back onto the scene with one of their most refined efforts yet, ‘Harmonia’. The title cut is an openair, sundrenched euphoric affair. Airy pads and a buoyant bass carry the track effortlessly, and the simple, yet incredibly effective, drum patterning further lightens the tone giving everything the feeling of dancing in a cloud. Slowly, sirenlike synths call out, entrancing the listener into eyes-closed revery. The EP closes on an even higher note as the duo take on John Beltran’s classic “Gutaris Breeze (6000km to Amsterdam)” from his 1996 album, ‘Ten Days of Blue’. The boys left the original mostly untouched, only bringing forth the track’s softer elements to the forefront and adding a monstrously driving kick next to a serpentine bassline, transforming the track into a peaktime powerhouse.
It's like they say about the album "Dawn is Mine": " ... understated, floating beauty"! Like other music on the Scissors & Thread label Vilette manages to blend deep house with ambient elements in a unique way. "Girl Next Door" has a bit more grove in it - but adding a lot of depth to it. Love it. Carsten Martin Steffen
Beltran’s music has a refreshing but decidedly “uncool” earnestness that channels the sense of naïve exploration that fueled much of the best golden-era club music. Bandcamp Album of the Day Apr 2, 2021
