In Deep #018 (23rd Feb 2011)

This turned out to be one of my favourite shows of recent times. Lots of deep house on the menu, interwoven with some nu disco grooves and a liberal sprinkling of acid. Mosaik’s “Loell” comes with a lovely new remix by Nea Fredrikkson, melting together skippy, Atjazz style beats with introspective melodies. There’s also new music from Toby Tobias, Lovebirds, Addex and Crazy P, while John Daly provides a loyal update of the enduring house classic “Can you feel it”.

Random Factor is another alias of the multi-talented Carl Finlow (aka Silicon Scally). “After the tone” has a beguiling, slugrave feel, with wobbling bass and stepping beats, and is one of those hypnotic tracks which sounds slower that it really is. A real antennae nodder.

Pick of the week for me is “Nonneo” by Tin Man – An emotional acid ballad with a bit of an IDM feel. With releases on Keys of Live, Global A and Cheap Records, Tin Man (Johannes Auvinen) is a bit of an acid specialist. All too often the 303 is typecast as either a hyperactive extrovert or bubbly party-starter, but “Nonneo” and other Tin Man releases show the ever-versatile machine can be much more evocative. Can’t think of a better track to celebrate Acid Day (3rd March)!

Thanks to everyone who came along to The Shipwrights or tuned in on Future Music radio. Back with more in a couple of weeks.
