Marked by a stupendous combination of an infectious electric guitar riff, a simmering drum track, a bevy of harmonious electronic synth elements, and intimately heartfelt lyrics, “Storm (Remix)” by former Italian recording artist Songwriter, Music producer, Gianluca Zanna is a bonanza of kinetic sound.
For the “Storm (Remix)” single Gianluca continues his prodigious partnership 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. Gianluca and Brian have formed a robust collaborative union that has produced a series of ear-catching singles that will leave you dazzled. The origins of “Storm (Remix)” actually derives from a personal experience that occurred in Gianluca’s life and the descriptive lyrics channel his emotions at the time similar to an illuminating track of his that we recently covered titled “I Want to Know (Are You the One”); “Storm (Remix)” brings that same energy to the tenth power with its high voltage infusion of rock and personal authenticity. Gianluca explains the unconventional manner in which the song developed….
The original riff started while I was jamming with my bass at my Music Club in Kingman Arizona and from there, I continued creating the song in my sleep…I dreamt that I was listening to the melody pumping from the speakers of a red sports car I was driving in Miami. Then I woke up and I started recording the song. The lyrics are the result of another real-life experience and gave me such emotions you can listen in the song.
That exact sentiment is definitely captured in the lyrical content and is a testament to Gianluca’s adept songwriting skills as he masterfully is able to musically convey a life event to you as a listener and the concept of the song appears so vividly in your mental imagery.

The romantically passionate lyrics brought forth on “Storm (Remix)” are absolutely beaming as they project a ray of light over the track overall; that vibe is enhanced even further with the aforementioned instrumentation that lights up the sonics. The sound design on the electro pop components and percussion is wondrous, creating an out-of-this-world spatial effect. The composition is exceptionally arranged, and the 80’s reminiscent guitar phrase that resonates across the soundscape is a feat of ingenuity that sets this track apart from its contemporaries in the electro pop space.
