Ports – Smiling
Since I seem to be on a bit of a deep house roll, here’s another from Ports on the new Habitual Recordings label.
The original mix of Smiling is as much vocal house as deep house. All sunshine and hand waving. The Magic Bird remix takes things a bit deeper with some techy blooping on the bass. Daniel Fernandez gives it a bit of samba shuffle and Retza provides what is probably the best of the remixes with a dark, almost techno, remix. Nice package.
Blurb: The first release on the newly minted future house label from Australian duo Fake Forward is an absolute standout straight out of the gate. Hand picking this deep melodic tune from local Australian up and comer Ports, the HABITUAL team are ‘Smiling’ over this package with some amazing remixes from Magic Bird, Daniel Fernandes, Retza, Jack Love and N/A.
