Released pretty much on every mp3 store online and as physical release at ballon records' site, this song is the first lento try from someone pretty famous in the Italodance World, Marco.

Yes it's the Marco from Fabrizio e Marco project!
Marco actually worked alone in his Austrian studio on this lento song and soon Groovebox was born.

But let's talk about the song..
As you may know, it's a sad song about a girl leaving a man, leaving him alone in the rain and
drowning in his tears.

It starts with the sound of a storm, then the powerfull voice of Marco begins shortly after singing his desperation.
The beat comes slowly whereafter the bass starts followed by a synth that arrives suddenly. It's the usual powerfull and
massive synth from Fabrizio e Marco as you know it full of energy.
around 2:10 min a nice calm moment occurs, just after a nice play on the vocal with the pitch
going up and down on Marco's voice, and then back to the bass and the powerfull synth!
A very well produced lento track and a nice first try by Marco. 4 stars.

The Crom & Steel Summertime remix is not very satisfactory though.
It's not lento and not italo, it's kind of an experimenting mix of Electro and House. There's an interesting moment at 1:54 min but it's not that good and does not lift the track much. They did not take use of Marco's powerfull
voice fully and could have done far better work since Marco's voice is a very clean and energetic voice, instead they ended up with this boring and quite uninteresting remix of an otherwise nice single. 2 stars.

As usual it's a quality production from Marco and a good first try at lento. You'll see it's not the typical Lento Bass used by Gigi or the Movimentolento team because, as Marco formulated it, he "wants to create his own lento style".
Marco is actually working a lot on his 2 projects and I can say that there should be more on its way from Groovebox!
