M-Capio – We’re Just Passing Through

January 2, 2014 in Singles

M-Capio We're Just Passing Through Aspect AudioFour quite varied mixes on offer of this latest from UK producer M-Capio.

In its Original form, We’re Just Passing Through is a pleasantly lolloping deep house roller with both disco and lounge-y overtones. Lee Hodge’s remix is a more spangled, proggy affair, while Nacho Riveros goes for a Balearic-ish fusion of deep and prog flavas. Bringing the EP to a close is the Luv Boutique Dub, an afterhours-friendly, stripped-back pass powered along by tuff, raw percussion.

Again, it’s the Original for me here, but the Nacho Riveros rub comes a close second.

Nacho Riveros – Messenger EP

March 31, 2013 in Singles

Nacho Riveros Messenger EP 5 And DimeIs it just me, or has it been a little while since Denver-based label 5 And Dime featured on here?

Well, no matter cos they’re here now, with a three-track, four-mix EP of archetypical 5 And Dime tackle: that is to say, melodic, very deep house music of the finest calibre. It’s the lounge-y 7th Avenue that gets the remix treatment, Luv Boutique turning in Deep Pass Remix that beefs up the drums just a smidgeon for the deepest of dancefloors; elsewhere, Level 66 is a smooth n’ sumptuous small hours groover for the more sophisticated floors, sporting what sounds like a snatch of vocal from Strictly classic The Warning, while Messenger itself is an ultra-deep, dubby affair, albeit still with solid 4/4 kicks for dancefloor appeal.

Quality stuff as ever, from one of the finest labels for proper deep house around right now.

Out: This week
