Zanna starts collaborating with the world famous sound engineer Brian Reeves
Updated: May 6
Former Italian Songwriter and Music Producer recording 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)” 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.
When Luca grew up in Italy in boarding schools and Military School he was dreaming to become a songwriter and emigrate to America, he was listening to the work of Brian Reeves, a world-famous record producer and sound engineer among his credits Donna Summer, Giorgio Moroder, Billy Idol, U2, Simple Minds. Today Brian Reeves has mixed some of his latest songs like “I Want to Know”, “Storm Remix”, “I AM Remix” and “The Other Side of my Heart Alexis”, "Iwant to Forget you", .
