John Alto lands on Riotville with Work It
Electronic artist John Alto continues to establish himself as an artist of note with latest single Work It, a tough, raw slice of tech house from the very top drawer.
With American, Italian and Danish roots, John Alto is a DJ, an artist, a skilled producer and remixer with a passion for club music. His signature sound is dark, bass heavy and cinematic, and he has worked with artists, writers and producers like Maurice West, Silque, Ganz, Nadine (from M.O), Nicklas Lif and Ofelia.
John Alto´s first release was on Martin Garrix´s label STMPD RCRDS in a collaboration with the German duo TwoWorldsApart. He was also commissioned by Sony Music to remix Coy´s Promises and for Norwegian superduo Seeb on their release Free To Go (feat Highasakite).
Alto’s first release, My Heart, landed in April 2022 – a slickly produced and highly evocative slice of melodic house that hit hard and left a lasing impression. Now he’s back with the follow up Work It, that lands just in time for the summer season on Riotville Records, the label of Danish powerhouse electronic producer Snavs.
Demonstrating the range of his production, where My Heart was characterised by subtle progression and melodic nuance, Work It goes in hard from the off. Chunky bass, serrated synths and mechanised vocal samples combine for a punchy, visceral tech house cut that confidently delivers the dancefloor goods.
