Thumping beats and soaring riffs were in evidence as Mauro Picotto's Alchemy rumbled into London this week, writes TopReviews4U editor Paul Christian.

The event, at Work Bar, in Chapel Market, saw Picotto joined by Gabry Fasano and Alby & Devid.
Fans whooped as Picotto dropped a remix of classic Lizard (Gonna Get Ya) and other storming techno, trance and house tracks in an eclectic set, at the intimate venue.
Comical facial and hand gestures were the order of the night as 'The Lizard Man' interacted with the knowledgeable and up-for-it crowd.
Best of all the Alchemy stars mingled with revellers between sets, in an informal and surreal experience, almost unheard of in today's world of aloof EDM silliness.
Strong support was also welcomed as reverberating subs and techno riffs made for a uniquely Italian flavour, like the Peroni clubbers supped as the bass kicked.
With plenty more on offer from both the Alchemy label and Work Bar, there's lots to look forward to in London and beyond.
