Scorsi’s ‘Alok Presents Scorsi’ is a high-powered sonic medley
With the support of fellow Brazilian Alok, Scorsi has taken to Spinnin’ Records for the release of his debut EP, Alok Presents Scorsi. The blossoming Scorsi, after winning the 2016 Miller SoundClash, has secured an eclectic string of releases on Phouse and Sony’s Braslive, capturing the attention of the widely acclaimed house hero Alok. His repertoire ranges from punchy bass house to the emotive future bass of his breakout hit, “So Simple.”
Scorsi lays out his vastly differing deck of cards in Alok Presents Scorsi, made up of two original tracks and two of his Alok remixes, “Big Jet Plane” and “Love Is A Temple,” featuring IRO, which Alok mixed into his 2017 Tomorrowland set. Scorsi offers a bouncy, carefree touch to “Big Jet Plane,” adding Latin drums and a high-pitched lead synth, while his take on “Love Is A Temple” is a straightforward future bass rendition of the original, leaving most of the interlude’s pop-infused guitar chords and vocals intact.
“Crossover” is a high-powered electro house track of Scorsi’s own concoction, begging to be played in the fist-pumping company of gassed up festival-goers. In an even fiercer fashion, the final track, “Tumbah,” is a roaring display of screechy, relentless bass house.
The debut EP seems to serve as a Goldilocks experiment for Scorsi, in which he can’t seem to find quite the right flavor of EDM porridge. The result is a somewhat sporadic body of high-quality work, wherein Scorsi is only beginning to carve his signature style into several vastly differing genres.
