Desos – Deep Dancer
Two tracks and four mixes in total. All Night is a drummy, afterhours kinda groove with a female voice repeating the title, but for me really comes into its own on the Late Night Remix from Andre Detoxx, where the tribal-ish percussion gets replaced by crisp, snapping snares and hi-hats, and where additional pads/chords give the track a suitably dreamy, driftaway kinda quality.
Deep Dancer itself meanwhile is, in its original form, a raw n' jazzy cut that wouldn't have sounded out of place on Strictly Rhythm circa 1991-93, with a spoken vocal informing us that "she's a nightclub dancer". Remix duties on this one are ably handled by Deep Active Sound, who delivers a superb stripped n' techy rework that, like the original of All Night, is tailor-made for the afterhours joints.
Overall, then, the remixes just pip the originals this time out for me, but all four tracks are strong and this is definitely one you should be checking!
Out: This week
About: This comes not on Deso Records, I should point out, but on New Zealand's UM Records, AKA Untitled Music… they've got their own very fine blog or you can find 'em on Facebook and Soundcloud
