Written by deepinradio.com on 17/04/2018
Gaol – Rogue EP (Oh So Coy Records)
Staying over in the Balearic Isles, our next release is from talented Spanish producer – Gaol. Must be something to do with the climate that keeps the fresh house vibes a flowing.
Here we have 2 original tracks oozing with warmup/beach bar appeal.
Rogue is hypnotic with a nagging vocal that builds throughout whilst Bittersweet is a tad more driving utilising excellent keys and percussion.
Sit back and imagine the palm trees swaying and a suitably pink drink in hand.
Leonardo Chevy – Love And Trust Go Together (Remixes) (Sunclock Records)
Remember “Love And Trust Go Together” by Leonardo Chevy? Surely yes because it was a real bomb! Well the record is repeated with a few interesting remixes. The Afro version by Carlos Francisco is a really effective review. The percussive beat is a kind of train that never stops and its evolutions are perfectly stitched to the verses of the song that remain deadly as always.
The second remix is by the famous “Dj Aakmael” who has fun with imaginative groove and synth games reminiscent of a vague, well-built deep atmosphere. The well-composed synth melodies over a refined lap of pad. The key House of Carlos Francisco has a more classic mold but with an unusual energy given by the power of the bass turn and the charge that releases the central break.
A second part really not to be missed!

Jay Nortown – Satellites EP (Lucidflow Records)
Spanish DJ and producer Jay Nortown lends his skills to release #153 on Lucidflow, with the last five years spent living in Ibiza lending to some sun soaked house grooves on the ‘Satellites’ EP.
Opening track ‘Makemake’ brings a new aesthetic to the label, embracing the trend for lofi sounds thanks to a hefty spread of crunchy vinyl crackle throughout the track. Punching through this is the easily recognisable sprightly tone of the 909 and bouncing multi-textured chords.
Following this is ‘Namaka’, which dispenses with the dusty vibes and swaps in an ‘after the rain’ mood, perfect for those afternoons where the switch between bright sun and doomy clouds seems to happen at will. Again its key motif is multi-textured and layered chords, which appear front and centre before pinging around your ears left and right.
Finally ‘Haumea’ is a classic piece of driving deep house that will have Guidance Recordings and Paper Recordings aficionados from the past nod their head in approval. Like the best material from that era, it is no less dance floor focused than its straight up house based brethren. However its deep alignment certainly aims to enrich soul and not just body alone.
Label owners Klartraum pick up ‘Namaka’ for a remix. It looks across to ‘Makemake’ for inspiration by borrowing its vinyl crackle, kicking off with a eighties edged synth solo. While you think you are in for a pared back journey, the remix keeps unfolding and unfolding and unfolding. Subtle breaks are introduced and layered, orchestral tendencies and embraced in little moody movements, these in turn develop into brighter passages. There are no rules being followed here on this live jam journey.
Jay Nortown ‘Satellites’ will be available on May 21st 2018 from the usual digital stockists.
