Looking up information about Italian DJ/producer Francesco Rossi is a bit of a challenge as he shares the name with two famous footballer goalkeepers. What isn’t a challenge is embracing the warmth of his new single “Paper Aeroplane.” A summer record that is perfect for tropical vacations, the record fuses deep house, world music, and a touch of jazz with an accessible pop feel. Imagine one of the ‘Western Dream’-era Bob Sinclar records (like “Love Generation” or “World Hold On”) with a vocalist that sounds like James Blunt (instead of Steve Edwards/Gary Pine) and you got an idea of the sound. As big as progressive, electro, and stadium tracks are at the moment, it’s really refreshing to see big guys like Afrojack, David Guetta and Tiesto supporting this subtle, yet intoxicating deep house monster. With Pete Tong dubbing it Essential New Tune this past weekend, watch for even wider (and well-deserved) support to make this a big summer favorite.
