Sarrass – A New Day
Sarrass cites Krautrock legend Klaus Schulze as his biggest inspiration in the world of electronic music. So the Original Mix's mantra-like repetition of musical phrases should come as no surprise. A New Day is just that little bit too rhythmically twitchy and non-wallpaperish to sit comfortably under the 'Balearic' banner, but you'd be in the right kind of area.
It's the Spacefunk Remix, though, that stands out for me. Topping warm and slightly less twitchy 4/4s and a subtly funky bassline with tinkling jazz pianos and analogue synth meanderings worthy of his hero Schulze's sometime cohorts Tangerine Dream themselves, this is late-night, headfried deep house at its finest.
Out: This week
About: This comes on London-based label Third Ear Recordings, who can be found here, here and here (web, Facebook, Soundcloud). Oh, and it's the trailer single for a new album, Dirty Gear, which is due in 2013 so keep 'em peeled.
