Pano Manara – Hommage An Karl

October 17, 2015 in Singles

Paco Manara Hommage An Karl Ready Mix RecordsSome superb deep n’ dreamy house vibes here courtesy of those ever-reliable providers of the same, Canada’s Ready Mix Records.

Three mixes of Hommage An Karl to choose from. In its Original form, it’s an uncompromisingly deep, dubby chugger topped with a strange spoken male vocal that our old friend Google informs me is a quote from Charles Bukowski’s Factotum. Things then get a little more trippy and acidic as the track progresses. The BDTom Remix pulls off the unlikely feat of heading down an even deeper, dubbier path, but they’ve saved the best till last, cos the spacey, late-night Analog Trip Remix, with its added fem vocal snips and head-gone-astray synth squiggles, is an absolute triumph.

Out: This week on Beatport, everywhere else from 29 October.

Bourne – Fake Illusions EP

June 21, 2014 in Singles

Bourne Fake Illusions EP Ready Mix RecordsHeading into deeper pastures now with this three-track, six-mix EP from Bourne on the ever-checkable Ready Mix Records.

Fake Illusions itself is supplied in two mixes, the squelchy Original with its vague hints of Latin disco, and a far deeper (and to these ears far more satisfying) rub from Yigit Atilla. Eyes Wide Open is a slower, more abstract/near-ambient piece supplied in just the one mix. The real treat there though is After A Rainy Night. The original sits somewhere between cosmic disco and the deepest of progressive house, label boss BiG AL’s refix moves us more firmly into house territory, but the standout of the whole EP is the BD Tom Remix – proper late-night driftaway bliss.

All told, then, there’s a bit of a mix of styles but for the deep house connoisseurs, it’s Atilla’s mix of Fake Illusions and BD Tom’s take on …Rainy Night that make this unmissable.

Out: This week
