tONKPROJECT feat Marie K - It's Time To Introduce You

A nice varied set of mixes on this latest from Romanian label Behaviors and he of the jammed Caps Lock key, tONKPROJECT.

The Radio Mix I guess is the 'original', a mellow, trippy affair in a laidback, downtempo kinda vein, featuring a breathy spoken female vocal with a touch of the 'birth tapes' about it and lilting, soothing piano notes. The Arthur Abidzhba Remix stays in a downtempo vein, but here things take a notable turn towards the glitchified n' twisted… find the magic space between 'easy' and 'uneasy' listening and file this one there.

But for TIWWD's purposes, it's really the other two mixes that are of most interest. In the hands of Disclosure Project, It's Time… becomes a sumptuous deep disco groove with live-sounding funk bass, soaring-yet-understated strings and crisp, unrushed 4/4s – nice – while finally on the Pion Remix, it's reinvented yet again, this time as a dreamy, late-night deep house chugger that'd also work well in warm-up or bar sets.

Quality stuff, make no mistake.
