Daniel Ray – Hide & Seek

Daniel Ray Hide & Seek UM RecordsHigh quality deep house fare as always here from UM Records.

The Original mix of Hide & Seek is a lazy, meandering groove with lightly Afro/tribal-tinged drums, sumptuous piano notes and a contemplative, almost melancholy feel overall. It’s Yigit Atilla’s remix that’s floating my boat more, though, with the Turkish producer bringing the track’s dubby qualities to the fore in what is a far smoother late-night ride. Completing the package you also get Low Stratus, which is a tiny bit more upbeat than the other two but still best suited to warm-up or very late play, and whose primary charm for this reviewer lies not in its arty synthesizer top-notes but in its deceptively large bassline. Deep house purists fear not, we’re a long way from ‘bass house’ territory here, but listen closely and that bottom end packs some serious punch!
