The Heels of Love are Michele Tessadri & Luca Saponaro from Milan, and they use their beautiful vintage drum machines to make disco records. I’ve been hearing about them a lot recently in connection with the excellent Ajello, whose Come Back has been delighting us, and Hard Ton, whose Flawless has been doing the same.
Their first release was a remix for Mad On The Moon of Club Silencio’s Painted Boxes. It gave the original a shake, set it on the dancefloor where it belonged, made Tim Sweeney’s Best of 2009, and earnt them a reputation for producing bangers. This they quickly affirmed with their first single, the Tom Sinder EP, released on Under the Shade in September 2009. Watch that slap bass at 2min 55.
They are serving both record labels well, with their fantastic remix of Ajello’s Come Back due for release on Mad On The Moon on 30th March (Ajello also remixed their last single Quiet Please, which became MOM’s fourth 12″ in December), and featuring Hard Ton on their next single Crazy coming up on Under the Shade in April this year. They haven’t forgotten their remix roots, with their take on Motorcycle Boy’s next 12″ on Slow Motion Records out in March, AND after all that they’ve still found time to work on a side project, RAMPI, whose debut EP will be out on Under the Shade in April. Phew!
