Booka Shade welcome Italian live act Pôngo to Blaufield this February as the duo make their debut appearance on the label with ‘So Many Words’.
Based in Pisa, Italian production partners and brothers Giovanni and Daniele Bruni aka Pôngo have quickly become rising names of note, balancing both vibrant DJ sets with expansive, refined live performances across Europe and beyond. Following releases on Stereo MC’s London based imprint Connected, finding key support from artists including Solomun, Joris Voorn and Kölsch, the duo now turns their attention to a debut outing on Booka Shade’s Blaufield to open 2019, with three dynamic cuts in forming their ‘So Many Words’ EP.
Title track ‘So Many Words’ opens proceedings as the duo combine crisp percussion shots, trademark vocals and pulsating bassline patterns to great effect, before ‘Strong’ builds around further infectious vocals with powerful synth builds and rich yet icy tones. Last up, ‘When You Come’ rounds out proceedings, revealing evolving lead melodies, suspenseful breaks and sweeping synths to shape up the EP.
Pôngo ‘So Many Words’ is out on Blaufield on 15th February 2019.
