Max Volkholz – Dezent

What with the German name and all those Z's, you'd be forgiven for thinking this was some kind of European techno thing… but it's not. Instead, it's a very nice deep house four-tracker from DeepWit Recordings.

You get two mixes apiece of Dezent and Herr Glotz. Dezent in its original form is pitched kinda halfway between the club and the sofa, but a Nadja Lind remix steers the track more firmly in the direction of the dancefloor without losing any of its overall spacey, drifty vibe. On the B, Herr Glotz is a slightly more upbeat affair in its original form, all no-nonsense stripped-down beats and bass to start with before some lovely smooth Rhodes and barely-there vocal snippets invite you to close your eyes and lose yourself in the music. The Tom Shopper Remix is a slightly more sparse and dubby pass, and perhaps better suited to afterhours play.

All told – as I said, a very nice deep house four-tracker indeed.

Out: This week

About: Based in Denmark and headed up by Alvaro Hylander, DeepWit, in their own words, "cater towards a noncommercial, resonant, innovative and intelligent deep house sound," which I'm sure we can all agree is a splendid aim. This is only number eight from the label, but with releases already from the likes of Deep Spelle, Hideo Kobayashi and Marcelo Nassi, in the space of less than a year, expect big things! You can find 'em on Facebook and Soundcloud, and here's their actual proper website as well.
