It always felt like Italian house n garage had a degree of musicality and production that put it in a different league. off the top of my head……
Now we’re talking. This is gonna be my kind of thread (and potentially v expensive).
Will have to dig through the crates and have a think but here’s a couple off the top of my head.

I’ve not got too much of this type of stuff on vinyl outside compilations. Here’s a couple of things that I do own:
one of the biggest tragedies of our time is that Youtube user pepsimaxoldskool had their account deleted - it was a veritable treasure trove of this stuff
Yes yes, totally agree, they always did it with class whether it’s piano scream ups, deep house or more techy stuff. Was totally in love with that whole sound, and still am, still finding hidden gems to this day.
3 faves that cover some of the different bases…

I’m sharing this because it’s the first record I ever remember hearing out, summer 1990 at a yoof disco in Richmond upon Thames. I became an instant convert to anything Italian

I play this then again, I’m not shy of the cheese
In here somewhere…
This thread is like a money vacuum. I was going to start a house 12” thread but for the sake of everyone’s wallet I’ll wait a week.
