Nifty Fifty 06:35


Francesco Pico teams up with Paul Hazendonk to celebrate the 50th release of his Magnitude Recordings label with a special single titled 'Nifty Fifty'.

The duo have been working together on and off for many years now, after having met nearly 20 years ago at the Basic Beat record store; Francesco as a customer and Paul as the record seller. They've played many gigs together, shared residencies in the early 00's, Paul learned his first productions tricks from Francesco and later on Francesco moved on to sign various releases to Paul's labels Manual Music and MNL, including his 'Absolutely Flabbergasted' album. Last but not least, Magnitude Recordings is part of the Manual Music label family nowadays.

Long story short: these guys go way back, and with both of them involved with Magnitude Recordings it did seem more than logical that they'd lock themselves in the studio together again and come up with something fresh. The result is in front of you right now, an atypical, timeless, arp driven piece of melodic progressive house music that will funk your pants right off!

Happy 50th birthday Magnitude!
