Various – Best Of DeepWit Vol 3

May 27, 2015 in Albums

Best of DeepWit Vol 3 DeepWit RecordingsThe more observant among you may have noticed a dearth of DeepWit releases featuring on TIWWD of late. I thought they were on a break; it actually turns out they’d swapped promo systems and my email fell off in transition. Anyway it’s all sorted now… and what better way to catch up than with this third installment in the Danish label’s ‘best of’ comp series?

Even the less observant among you will have noticed I’m a fan of DeepWit’s particular, supremely chilled take on deep house generally, and one look at the talent roster here – which includes the likes of Tony S, Portofino Sunrise, Loz Goddard, Ivan Garci and Angelo Mele – should be enough to tell you that’s unlikely to change with this release. To pick but two cherries from a very fine tree, Demarkus Lewis’s garage-y refix of Agent Libre’s Miles Away would be worth the price of admission on its own, while for dreamy, dubby house vibes you’ll struggle to beat DMP’s Lexion this week.

If deep house from the more laidback end of the spectrum is what you’re looking for, then do yourself a favour and grab a copy of this forthwith.

Agent Libre – Miles Away

January 25, 2014 in Singles

Agent Libre Miles Away DeepWit RecordingsAnother familiar label, more heavy-hitter remixes and more quality deep house vibes here, with the label in question this time being Denmark’s DeepWit Recordings.

Four mixes of Miles Away to choose from. In its original form it’s an unhurried shuffler with a simple lolloping rhythm topped with sumptuous filtered strings, some lovely warm keys and barely-there snatches of female vocal, the overall effect being not unreminiscent of Dave Lee in Akabu mode. Label boss Alvaro Hylander is first up to the remix plate, bringing us a superb 5am pass that’s both stripped right down and just slightly pumped up at the same time. Demarkus Lewis goes for the soulful dancefloor jugular with a rub that brings the vocal to the fore, while lastly Reagan Grey goes in the opposite direction, emphasizing the track’s sweeping, epic qualities.

If pushed I think Demarkus Lewis just edges it but to be honest, all four mixes are pretty damn fine…

Out: This week
