LNTG or Late Nite Tuff Guy, is the current alias for Australia’s former HMC. Real name: Carmelo Bianchetti; he pioneered house and early techno music, practically bringing house to Australia in 1991 when he formed Juice Records. Though some of his earlier, and more innovative work in house music may not be obvious or apparent to the everyday listener, Carmelo has shifted gears and made a fairly sizable mark with his LNTG alias, mainly focusing on disco edits. He released the full previews to these tracks on his soundcloud earlier this summer, but has just recently released them on Razor-n-Tape Records.
The first is long edit of ‘Controversy’ by Prince, which has quickly risen to my most played list for the past week – definitely a keeper. The second is a retake of Juicy’s ‘Sugar Free‘, maxing out the potential of that late nite groove melody. There’s a difference feel between the two tracks LNTG put together for this release, but as cheesy as it sounds, they’re both timeless in my book. Check em!
