Los Angeles-based producer Durante has a cool way with groove. His tunes are intimate but energetic, a mood that fits late-night hangs on dance floors or your friend's back porch. His latest tune "Restless" makes the night-owl life sound chic, with echoing acid synths and a steady house beat, while a vintage cut-out video brings wild dimension to the sonic tale.
"I recently went to Italy and visited the house where I grew up until I was 4," Durante tells Billboard Dance. "When we arrived, it was completely abandoned, but the door was open so we walked in to take a look around. I ended up finding a bunch of these really old travel magazines from the '80s, like an Italian version of National Geographic. I really liked the photos in these, and at the time I had no idea what I was going to do with them. I grabbed a huge stack, and I spent an entire day cutting out all my favorite photos."
