Yigit Atilla – Cornerstone

August 29, 2014 in Singles

Yigit Atilla Cornerstone UM RecordsWe end tonight back in more familiar deep house territory, with this latest from the ever on-point UM Records.

In its Original form, Cornerstone is a midtempo chugger with a spoken vocal eulogising the unifying powers of house music – “We made our space and found our freedom/we lined the streets and danced like children/we made our place and shared our home/house in our hearts, our cornerstone”. The Meloder Remix is a bit ‘busier’ and more dramatic, with swirling synths, hefty bass and robotic vox, while TIWWD’s old buddy Tim Andresen serves up a drummier, terrace-friendly refix. Rounding out the EP is Colours And Textures, a more dubby, late-night affair with treated soulful vox and some lovely garage-y organ stabs.

The latter cut would actually be my pick, if pushed, but to be fair the whole EP’s pretty damn good.

Out: This week
