Southern California producer-singer duo, comprised of songwriter tomee zero and producer JVMES JET, Charlie Vettuno, have today announced their debut EP ‘Lime Juice’, out 29th September. Accompanying their announcement, they’ve shared lead single “Model Taste” - a sleek club-rap jaunt that’s coming across like Cakes Da Killa with The Neptunes behind the controls.
Speaking on the single, the duo shares, “‘Model Taste’ is about the moment in Charlie Vettuno’s semi-fictional journey through fame where he encounters luxury, excessiveness & desire. The song is from the perspective of his muse speaking to Charlie convincing him this is how life should be”
The duo bring a dynamic blend of musicality and innovation to their craft. Drawing inspiration from iconic producers like Timbaland and Missy Elliot, Charlie Vettuno has emerged as a formidable force in the world of house music.
“Our EP Lime Juice is a narrative on fame.” says the duo on the project. “It’s told through the eyes of a lost but ambitious person who believes fame will solve their problems and through the journey they discover fame is not the answer. Each song dives into the spoils of fame, Ego, Luxury, Sex, Drugs & Rock n’ Roll but with our own twist. Ending with the realization they need to get back to who they truly are despite the new circumstances of their life.”
Charlie Vettuno's signature style has caught the attention of music critics and fans alike, earning them praise from notable publications such as Rolling Stone Magazine and leading them to work with the likes of Raphael Saadiq & Ari Lennox.
