Demarkus Lewis – Place In The Shade

Demarkus Lewis Place In The Shade Headset Recordings
Dallas's own deep house legend Demarkus Lewis returns to San Francisco label Headset Recordings.

There are three mixes of Place In The Shade to choose from. The original's a lively little number with intricate percussion, nu disco-tastic synths and some old skool-sounding vocal snips, while Ross Richards' Shady Rework is more heads-down and chuggy, with the emphasis firmly on the groove. But the standout for me is the remix by Serbia's Mass Digital, in whose hands the track becomes a proper bassy 5am throbber whose essential darkness is alleviated by some more of those sparkling synths.

Whichever mix you plump for, though, you're getting a Demarkus Lewis record – and I don't think he's made a bad one yet…

Out: This week
