Santiago Santamaria – The Fire Within

January 7, 2013 in Singles

Santiago Santamaria The Fire Within UM RecordsSome typically high-quality deep house grooves from Richie Hartness’s UM Records stable here.

There are two tracks, in a total of five mixes. The Fire Within in its Original form is a mellow, midtempo affair whose seeming simplicity belies its densely-layered production, and which sports female vocal snippets in the classic NJ/NY vein. Soulight’s remix adds some serious bottom-end welly for the dancefloor, while a second rerub from Mr Leman and Thomas Dieckmann heads in the opposite direction, taking us into sparse, late-night territory. One More, meanwhile, is straight-up proper (deep) garage in its Original form, then gets a late-night deep house makeover from the always on-point Desos.

With mixes to suit a range of situations and the quality standard set to maximum throughout, this is a bit of a no-brainer, really, with the original of One More the pick for me but Soulight’s rub of The Fire… a close second.
