GENRE | DEEP HOUSE
VERDICT | ALL THE WAY DOWN THERE
LABEL | SUPER NATURE
RELEASE | 5.20.13
The opening DJ slot requires more impudence than the traveling headliner, who generally delivers a comparable product at each port. Table-setting is a lost art—one that requires absolute knowledge of the forthcoming.
“Steel Breeze” is the pick here. Riding sharp guitar swipes and an obese bass lob, the track’s momentum is sure-handed while remaining punchy enough to turn heads on the floor. Berlin-based AlexKid‘s dub rework bunches the pieces, serving the remnants shaken, not stirred.
“Lifted” is a more rollicking affair, lathering a foreboding vocal contribution from Alex Nazar alongside a jaded trombone blast.
And with a more distinctly side-to-side take, Fabio Giannelli‘s flip lets the handclaps do the talking.
Openers and headliners alike take notice.
