New York-based DJ/producer Lodato (full name Salvatore Lodato) lifts to his first unaccompanied appearance on Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart (dated Aug. 31), as “Home” debuts at No. 22. Lodato lands his second chart hit, following “Doomsday,” with Vassy (No. 14, October 2018). “Home” is Lodato’s follow up to his PolyAnna collaboration, “Sober,” which he released earlier in 2019.
If tracks fit for festival main stages are what you’re after, Lodato has got just the song for you. “Home” sees the NYC DJ/producer at his melodic best as its invigorating motif evokes mental imagery of packed crowds, fireworks and cryo cannons. With main stage energy, ‘Home’ is a solid moment of clarity from the hot and rising producer from the east coast.
Lodato tells Billboard, “I think ‘Home’ is a great concept. In many long-term ‘friendships,’ at least one of the two fantasizes about a hook-up or something more with the other person, but no one says anything because things get tricky when the lines start to get blurred. I wanted to capture the anticipation and then the ecstasy of, finally, the impossible.”
Lodato is an American DJ, Producer, and Remixer from New York.
