Her now 7million+ streamed ‘Other Side’fully launched Chicago’s Azzecca less than a year ago: it’s just over a year since her debut release on Higher Ground as she returns to Diplo’s imprint with absurdly catchy single ‘U Fool’, out now. Less full circle, more like a spiral staircase of a career with accolades aplenty on the way up, and she’s just getting started.


A brace of acclaimed REALM releases, a Maccabi House two-tracker, recent Beatportal Radar artist of the month,30 min mix on Pete Tong’s Radio 1 show, and a first full summer tour of festivals like Hard Summer, EDC Vegas, Electric Forest, and club shows like headlining Stereo Montreal, Halcyon SF, while still keeping her very own Chicago Dirty Disco female-focused events heating up the Windy City, Azzecca’s techno, house, dark dance combo brings high energy to her passionately but thoughtfully curated sets.


‘U Fool’: a hot release to keep summer dancefloors sizzling through September and beyond, the funky soul vocal now singing, now riffing in layers of chopped loopsor bestriding the breakdowns, sparringwith a Moroder-style juddering synth which grows out of a solid House beat. Insanely catchy.


The trackwill be followed by upcoming cut ‘Tell That Boy’ on Higher Ground, out October 12th.
