Billy Johnston and Gennaro Mastrantonio once again mix up a hot pot. Raw. 100 percent organic. Ready-to-be-served, fresh to order on dance floors from Detroit to Miami, Berlin and beyond. As always, this recipe is infused with helping of sensual vocals, spectral chords and a hearty bass of four-to-the floor flavor, guaranteed to keep the 5 am crowd begging for seconds.
This pair, still steaming from a jaw-dropping marquee release on Nicole Maudober’s recently-launched Mood Records imprint, has a tour of Asia and parts beyond on their summer menu. Here’s the best news: they’re still only sharpening their cleavers for a deeper cut.
Rewind to the future. This dynamic duo has emerged from the heat of hell’s kitchen — Miami via Rome, Italia, with a new twist on the classic Detroit techo sound that’s kept Jay Denham’s Black Nation records homes fires burning for over 20 years. With a stew of hotness in the hopper for 2013 and beyond, jocks and dance floor junkies alike best not take their eyes off B&G’s kitchen. Bon Appetit.
