Next up on sinnmusik* is Georgi Barrel, who serves up a pair of hot new deep house tracks and gets remixed by a fine selection names including Adrian, Fasika and Whedler. German producer Barrel has already served up a couple of great Eps on this label but this might be his best yet.
In original form, ‘Down’ is lush and elastic tune with organic drums, warm chords and spaced out pads all making for an inviting and charming atmosphere. A cool vocal and fat, rasping baseline drive things along before his other original ‘Forms of Freedom’ gets much more slick, punchy and high tempo. Its still a classy, deep space affair with lots of spiral pads, but there is real sliding energy in the drums and vibes a plenty in the male vocal sample that adds another layer of depth.
As for the remixes, first is Faskia, who flips the track into a spritely, nimble footed and pumping house cut with inviting chords at its heart. Then Adrian toughens out the original with bulbous bass, a new vocal and oodles of deep house charm. Lastly, Whedler remixes into totally different territory - his withering, bubbly, multi-focussed track is uplifting and frictionless and rounds out a solid package.
This is an essential EP for any and all working house DJs who need something fresh for their bag.
