A meandering start to this week’s show, with some late night jams from Deep Space Orchestra and Theo Parrish. “City Streets” is a slow, laid back number, laden with strings and soft percussion, and nicely evokes the dusky warmth of a city holding on to the day’s heat in summer.
The mood starts to pick up with “Java” and “Mishii”, while the Surrealism remix of “Paris Nights” is a lovely slice of upbeat tech house, with some nice Detroit licks thrown in. Sci-fi fans will get a kick out of the deep classic “Sanctuary” by Atlantic Fusion, then The Same Old Souls provide some quality deepness from Nelson, New Zealand.
Two tracks that I came across this week really knocked my socks off. “Be your own hero (Migumatix remix)” is a huge Chicago house track, with motivational acid and uplifting vocals – the result of the perfect combination of Larry Heard and Robert Owens. “Otherwise” by Stephan Panev is a sumptuous jazz edit, with a swinging bassline and meditative saxophone solo that extends throughout the track. Mysterious, evocative and beautiful.
