Gianluca Zanna Crafts “I Want to Know” a Vibrant Dance Ballad Inspired by Real Life

Updated: Jul 18, 2022

Gianluca Zanna Songwriter Music Producer

Former Italian immigrant recording artist songwriter music producer Gianluca Zanna is an artist in every sense of the word as he manifests his talents across a wide range of creative endeavors as a flourishing multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer and poet. Gianluca has honed his craft as a musician and poet from early childhood and it has culminated in him currently working with prominent music industry stalwart Brian Reeves, a world-famous record producer and sound engineer who has been behind the projects of luminaries such as Donna Summer, Giorgio Moroder, Billy Idol, U2 and Simple Minds. The pair have collaborated on a string of well-received single releases establishing themselves as a formidable creative partnership. Gianluca and Reeves have teamed up to work their magic once again for another dazzling track titled “I Want to Know (Are You the One)” arranged by Simone Sello, in which Gianluca wrote and produced and Reeves manned the post-production duties as the mixer. “I Want to Know” is an illuminating, upbeat dance track that shines with its bright sonics and instrumentation; heavily leaning into the electro pop space with its wondrous mix of melodious synths, pads and keyboard phrases. The soundscape is reminiscent of those big time pop tracks that ruled the 80’s. Foremost, the track has an intrinsic danceability as it’s extremely buoyant and that vibrancy is enhanced with the dazzling female vocals over the grooving instrumentation. Incredible sound design overall that illustrates a mesh of nostalgia with contemporary pop elements.

So what inspired the track? What is “I Want to Know” all about lyrically? Gianluca explains, “I dream of most of my melodies or are the results of my lifestyle experiences that give me emotions that I transform in music and lyrics. This melody came into my dream and a few days later I was inspired to create the lyrics by a woman whom I met in my life. All the songs I write are the results of real-life experience”.

“I Want to Know” is a brilliant song and composition. The songwriting vividly captures the essence of a romantic and emotional roller coaster that has had its share of trials and tribulations, however, it still has the capability of providing beautiful moments. The ethereal, angelic vocals project an alluring aura of romance and I feel that Gianluca’s poetic introduction sets up the harmonic journey that follows in the rest of the song. Too many times in our life We lived illusions and empty lies Too many times but tonight I want to know that you’re mine Source: Excerpt from “I Want to Know (Are You the One)”: Gianluca Zanna

Music Review of "I Want to Know - Are You the One" May 13 2022 by Andre Avanessian - UK Composer, Music Critic and Music Producer

Heavy on groove and positively bursting at the seams with enough melody to appease the most ravenous of dance lovers, Gianluca Zanna's terrifically catchy "I want to know - Are you the one" serves up soaring vocal performances, excellent writing, and a superb production that could easily see the track sit proudly and confidently on any playlist or radio station. Gianluca has whisked up both an exhilarating and assured dance track that will undoubtedly get the listeners both moving and singing along to its sleekly crafted arrangement.

The production is quite simply outstanding, each and every element of the track is extremely well balanced and the clarity and detail present in each and every aspect of the song makes for a continually thrilling listening experience. A sleek and polished production is one thing, but to have it filled with enough engaging creativity to keep listeners thrilled is certainly another, but I can safely say that "I want to know - Are you the one" most certainly has the musical depth to back it up. With its clear focus on melody, the way in which the song's many melodic concepts are developed and seamlessly interact with one another is a joy to listen to and this is made even more effective by the richly layered arrangement and superb vocal performance that lays at its heart.
