Stavros Doussis – Spiral

January 3, 2016 in Singles

Stavros Doussis Spiral Sound Vessel RecordsA wicked two-track, five-mix EP here from Athens’ Stavros Doussis, coming on San Diego label Sound Vessel Records.

In its Original form, Spiral itself is an unhurried little deep house gem, its simple chugging beats topped with lingering synth notes and ethereal female vocal snips. It’s strictly one for warm-up or late-night/post-club play, admittedly, but rather lovely all the same. The Mo’ Funk Remix takes us into tech-house territory with its shuffling, terrace-friendly beats, but better to these ears, and indeed just nudging it over the Original, is the La Rose Remix, which starts out all sweet n’ dreamy but then, at around the 1.5-minute mark, surprises with some seriously dark low-end rumble that forms the backbone of the track from there on in, and that could see it reaching out to all kinds of post-dubstep/bass music floors.

The other original cut, Rule & Conquer, is another fairly laidback houser topped with an extensive chunk of the oft-sampled speech from the end of The Great Dictator, but really comes into its own on the SERIOUSLY deep Processing Vessel Remix. Niceness!
