Cecyl – Forever EP

August 2, 2014 in Singles

Cecyl Forever Keep It ZenMore tuff, driving house grooves on this fine EP from Keep It Zen, although despite the higher tempo this is a deeper, less techy proposition than the Arch44 release below.

Four mixes of Forever to choose from. The Original ain’t nothin’ but a heads-down deep house groove, drums bass and organ stabs being the whole story until the 3:45 mark, at which point snippets of soulful male vocal and some piercing top-end synths join the party. The Mr KS Remix isn’t hugely different, if I’m being honest, while James Barnsley’s Dub Mix doesn’t take much explaining except to say that it’s got almost a tribal feel in parts. But the Julian M Schenkin St Remix does flip the script somewhat, with its added dusty breakbeats and middle eastern sounds.

It’s still the Original that works best to these ears, though.

Out: This week
