SHREM'S DOUBLE TROUBLE: "ON AND ON" /// "WHISPERS IN THE WIND" + Top 25 Best Hard Ton Tracks [2009-2019]


To celebrate the release of Hard Ton's much anticipated new EP featuring their brand new acid-house stomper "On and On" and the oldskool-flavoured and unusually downtempo gem "Whispers in the Wind", I am revisiting this enormously prolific Italian duo's entire catalogue. The occasion is rather special as 2019 marks ten years since the release of this ultra-flamboyant act's first official release "Marilyn". A decade of underground club anthems spanning across house (in countless of its incarnations), electro, Hi-NRG, synth-pop and Italo disco. All delicious. All saucy. All unapologetically queer.
