Some great tech house and deep house from Dro. It’s not out until mid-March but it’s that good I thought you’d want to hear now. This is electronic music as a thing of beauty, not cheap dance floor pumping fodder.
Opener 5 Points sets the tone with its rippling deep house groove, that twists and turns in glides of sound. Vidal and Aguair are more insistent, with a tech house crispness. But still maintaining a smooth beauty in the synth lines. Closer Speakeasy is the darkest of the four originals, with a compressed drum pattern and distortion. The synth warmth is still there but now trapped by dirty beats.
There are two remixes. City Lies provides a rather successful remix for Speakeasy. A dirty bass line gets added to the original to provid a fine balance between the beats and the synth. This is a real dance floor warmer. Steve Leroy remixes Vidal in a quirky deep house style, removing some of the techiness from the original.
Hard to pick a winner from the six, they’re all really good.
