When you think of family duo's you don't usually come across the younger partner being a 13 year old son! Well, Kiko and Hugo, have definitely pulled it off on the deep house 'Una Matttina' (A Morning).

Kiko, of course, has long been at the forefront (and indeed, foundations) of deep house, Balearics, dancefloor sounds - and here's his son, straight from his classical piano lessions - and has totally nailed it (as the yuts says these days).

If you've got a longing for the Robert Miles vibe of 'Children' with an echo of 'Fade To Grey' (are these two musically playing with us?) this is potentially, just as big as both these 'classic' tracks (as an aside, I don't remember walking through Brighton's 'The Lanes' one weekend and it was if all you could hear was 'Children' back in 1995/6).  

Hugo's piano element is a cover of Ludovico Einaudi, the famous Italian pianists and they'd have you believe 'I'm Not In Love' by 10cc was the inspiration for the electroic element; well you can certainly feel the 'oooooooohhhs' more on the instrumental.

There's a 'poem' version that's been generated by an AI app which is better than it sounds but I think I'll stick to the orignal non-poem version.

PS. Hugo, might be an idea to get your application in for the Verdi Conservatory in Milan and follow in the footsteps of Rahmin Bahram.
