Savvas – Running Out Of My Heart

June 4, 2015 in Singles

Savvas Running Out Of My Mind Ready Mix RecordsTo start us off tonight, some typically high-quality deep house vibes from Canada’s Ready Mix Records.

Five mixes of Running Out Of My Heart to choose from. The original’s a pulsing midtempo affair with a soulful male “running just as fast as you can” vocal and a Balearic-ish feel overall. Anthony Mea tuffens up the drums and uses the vocal more sparingly, on a mix built with weary 4am dancefloors in mind*. Forteba’s rub is a little more lilting, with shuffly drums, and as such should find favour with those on a “deep and soulful” tip, Pion’s operates in that deep/progressive hinterland and finally Yigit Atilla takes us into proper amniotic, late-night territory.

The Mea rub is working best for me but our old friend Yigit’s not far behind.

Out: This week (on general release)

* I say that, but obviously I have no idea what Mr Mea had in mind when he was making it. He was mostly thinking about tractors and Hershey bars, for all I know. But you know what I mean.

Linas P – Massive Deep

April 22, 2013 in Singles

Linas P Massive Deep Lens MediaAnother label here that’s fast becoming a TIWWD regular: Croatian imprint Lens Media.

This time out they bring us a track from Lithuania’s Linas P that’s very aptly named – it is indeed both massive and deep! The original’s a  warm-up/afterhours affair with dubby tinges around the edges, while remixes from Pion, Deep Spelle and Helly Larson beef up the beats and drag it onto the floor in techy, deep and vaguely proggy fashion respectively.

It’s the Pozzi Dub that stands out for me, though. This mix heads off in the opposite direction and drops the tempo even further, adding some speaker-challenging bass drops for maximum heads appeal. Think the uncompromising red-eyed minimalism of the very deepest, dubbiest dubstep à la Youngsta or Distance, but rendered in a deep house stylee, and you’ll get the idea.

Awesome headnoddin’ tackle to soothe the most battle-weary soul.

Out: This week
