  • Description After the seventieth release Smiley Fingers decided to start a new limited catalog oriented toward a more eclectic sound.For the first release it proposed a masterpiece by Franky B (aka Cryptic Monkey) titled Vesuvius Bunks.In Vesuvius Bunks, Franky B combines dub-techno elements with a slow groove, on this track there are no voices but synthetic bass lines that remembers of the Neapolitan volcano's vibrations. Franky B was born in Herculaneum, the town at the foot of Vesuvius, and this is the tribute to his hometown.Dark, solemn and gigantic, Mount Vesuvius dominates the Bay of Naples.For centuries the population has lived under its shadow, silent and pulsating The ancestral fear of his power, telluric vibrations and its constant presence are traces indelibly imprinted into the looks of these people.The pulsating bass rolls on groove, like the magma penetrates through the cavities of the earth, while the sound of a saxophone warms the hearts like an African wind...Enraptured by this vision, Luigi Pane, director and creative director of Abstract:groove, decides to turn the sound of Franky B into images, realizing the Video Clip.This single will be released on Oct 1st and will contain two tracks, an original mix and a version featuring the saxophonist James Senese from Naples.
